LG makes L90, L70, L40 official with Android 4.4 KitKat for emerging 3G markets


Just as we predicted, LG is bringing their L series back for Mobile World Congress 2014 with the LG L90, LG L70, and LG L40. The devices attempt to follow LG’s premium G lineup’s lead with top-notch design, packaged with solid mid-range specs for emerging markets.

Customers won’t have to wait for the highest-end OS  though: all three devices will launch with Android 4.4 KitKat.


We’ll get hands-on with the LG LIII Series at MWC 2014, but for now, you’ll have to settle for sauntering over the specs.

  • 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor

  4. Great now if only they could make 4.4.x official on their current high end phones.

  5. if it cost less than 130 that would be great otherwise its a waste of time moto g and hongmi would be better choice for the lowend

  6. Only L90 is better than Moto G. Moto G is the king of cheap phones, but i dont know Blu company yet.

  7. i am using Acer Liquid and its really great. Infact i am in love with it :)

  8. Another aspect that borrow from the high ranges is the new housing Quick View , protected on both sides.
