Continuing its success in the mobile industry and with the biggest leap since last year, the Korean tech firm LG is about to release four new handsets for the mid-range market. These devices are all coming with the latest Android Lollipop OS with quad-core CPU, it has screens that ranges from 4-inch with the new LG Joy, 4.5-inch for the LG Leon, 4.7-inch for the LG Spirit and 5-inch display for the LG Magna and with variants for both 3G and LTE connectivity.

The company will also showcase all of these four devices at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 in Barcelona Spain. It will become one of the highlights for LG during the conference in addition to the latest flagship devices that helped LG boost its dominance in the mobile market in 2014.

LG Joy

From the basic, LG offers the mid-ranger Joy handset that has a 4-inch  WVGA display with 233 ppi display pixel density. Depending on the Market, the handset will either have a 1.2 GHz Quad-Core CPU or a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core CPU, 1GB or 512 MB of RAM, 8 GB or 4 GB of internal storage and either Android 5.0 Lollipop or the little older Android 4.4 KitKat. It comes with a 5 Megapixel camera on the front and a standard VGA camera on the front. It will be powered by a 1900 mAh removable battery in a body that measures 122.7 x 64.0 x 11.9 mm.

For taking photos with the new LG Leon, one variant will have an 8 Megapixel camera sensor on the front and the other comes with 5 Megapixel. For the front shooter however, LG stays with a VGA camera sensor. Android 5.0 Lollipop drives the LG Leon on a 1900 mAh removable battery. The 4.5-inch handset has wider and longer body which measures 129.9 x 64.9 mm but has a little slimmer profile at 10.9 mm thick.

LG Spirit

The Spirit has more of an edge as compared to the previous two devices that we mentioned above with its larger 4.7-inch display and with a higher pixel density of 312 ppi. Powering the handset is either the 1.2 GHz CPU or the more better 1.3 GHz CPU with both processors to be available in Quad-core setup. It also comes with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage space. Like the Leon, The LG Spirit will also have a choice of either 8 Megapixel or a 5 Megapixel sensor on the back. LG is generous enough to consider a larger and much more improved 1 Megapixel camera on front which should produce a quite high-quality video calls and self-portrait. The battery has also been boosted with a larger 2100 mAh battery on a 9.9 mm thick package.

LG Magna

Boosted with both performance and features, the Magna is the top of the line among these mid-range devices with its large 5-inch HD display with 294 ppi pixel density. Like its lower siblings, the LG Magna will also be available on either 1.2 GHz or 1.3 GHz Quad-Core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal storage space. The camera also comes with 8 Megapixel for the main sensor on the back and a lot more improved no only for making video calls, but also a better equipment for taking selfie photos with its dedicated front camera sensor with its bigger and better 5 Megapixel shooter. Its battery is even bigger with 2540 mAh battery with a dimension of  139.7 x 69.9 x 10.2 mm profile.

There you have it, the four new LG mid-range devices with different screen sizes and specific internal specs depending on the market from which they will be available. Despite their differences, one thing is in common with these devices, its affordability which should be easier for users to own a smartphone device without breaking the budget. And as LG has announced, these new devices will be released worldwide but for the meantime we’ll be seeing it first on a few key markets and will be shown at MWC 2015 before getting one of these in your area.
