If the newly announced LG Magna was the top in the list for specs included, the LG Spirit is just a smaller variant of it. LG has just announced four new Android smartphones ahead of MWC 2015, and these include LG Magna, LG Spirit, LG Leon and LG Joy.
The reduced screen size, although still packing the HD resolution, makes the pixel density better in LG Spirit, as it comes with a 4.7-inch touchscreen. Just like the LG Magna, the Spirit will be powered by a 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz processor based on location, and there will be 1GB RAM along with 8GB internal storage and a MicroSD card slot for storage expansion.
LG has put some extra efforts in making both, the Magna and Spirit, as there is that curve helping in a better grip as well as in aesthetics. The in-cell touch scheme for displays is adopted by LG for the improved sensitivity, faster touch recognition, better outdoor visibility and crisper images, all this by bringing the display closer to the screen.
The Spirit runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, with LG’s own UI and the special features like Glance view for notifications on turned off screen, and Gesture shot for capturing pictures in the camera app of the device. The phone comes with a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1-megapixel front-facing camera, which is quite some downgrade from the LG Magna. Physically, it is again similar to the other devices, where we see the physical buttons on the back, just like in LG G2 and G3.
The LG Spirit has a 2100 mAh battery packed in, and the dimensions are 133.3 x 66.1 x 9.9mm. To keep the 3G and 4G LTE units distinguishable, the devices have different make for back covers – a metallic one in LTE units, and the patterned plastic back in the 3G units.
