LG isn’t waiting for the large arena of Mobile World Congress to announce its new lineup of Android smartphones, as a few devices get announced with mid-range specifications, and these probably are going to be the only devices to be showcased at MWC 2015, alongside the LG Watch Urbane, a new Android Wear smartwatch.
Based on the market, there will be 3G and 4G LTE models available, and the LTE models will come with some distinctive back covers. The Magna is one of the premium devices in the series, and thus will boast a sleeker and attractive profile, with subtle 3000mm radius curve.
LG is sticking to the rear button profile, where the power button as well as the volume rocker buttons will be seen just below to the camera. While on the external hardware side, the LG Magna has a 5-inch 720p display, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and a 8-megapixel shooter on the back, it is internally coming with a 1.2GHz / 1.3 GHz processor based on location, along with 1GB RAM.
The LG Magna runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and it has a 2540 mAh battery packed in. The physical dimensions are 139.7 x 69.9 x 10.2mm. There is a 8GB internal storage and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion. While it is Android Lollipop, the LG’s own features are packed in, including Glance view, which shows the list of unread notifications when the screen is turned off, and Gesture Shot that works on gestures to captures photos using the camera.
While the other devices such as LG Spirit, LG Leon and the entry-level LG Joy are announced as well, the LG Magna seems to be better on specs, and these devices will be showcased at the MWC 2015. The launch is imminent as well.
