LG has just announced four new Android smartphones today, and the most basic and low-on-spec device in them, is the LG Joy, which not just has some downgrades with the internal hardware, but there are changes seen on the external aspect as well.
“LG’s new mid-range collection continues our legacy of offering amazing smartphones at reasonable prices,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “For millions of consumers around the world, the deciding factor on which smartphone to buy isn’t how fast or how big it is but how balanced it is. With our new mid-range smartphones, more and more customers will be looking to LG for their next handsets.”
The LG Joy has a 4-inch WVGA resolution display (480 x 800 pixels resolution), and based on the region, there will either be a dual-core or a quad-core processor clocking at 1.2 GHz, and supporting that, will either be a 1GB or 512MB RAM. With 8GB internal storage, there will be a MicroSD card slot.
The cameras include a 5-megapixel rear and a VGA front-facing camera, and it is still unclear whether the LG Joy will run Android 4.4 KitKat or Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. The device has a removable 1900 mAh battery, and it supports 4G LTE connectivity, and just like the other ones in the series, there is a metal back cover on the LTE unit and a plastic back on the 3G one. The dimensions are 122.7 x 64.0 x 11.9mm.
Unlike the LG Magna, LG Spirit and Leon, the LG Joy doesn’t have the physical buttons on the back, and there is a standard placement on the side frame. All these smartphones are going to be showcased at LG’s booth in Mobile World Congress, and we don’t expect anything else from the company this time at the show floor.
