At Mobile World Congress, not only did LG announce their new phablet the LG G Pro 2, but they also refreshed their L Series lineup which is mostly low-end devices. Hence why you don’t hear about these devices all that much. One of those devices was the LG L70 which we now have pricing and availability on. ePrice is reporting that the LG L70 is going to be priced at $163 in Taiwan, and it’s going on sale there on April 1st. The LG L70 is also listed by Amazon Germany, but it’s a bit more pricier there, around $246 – after being converted obviously. Additionally, Amazon doesn’t state when the device will be available, or in stock. However, the home screen does suggest April 1st in Germany as well.
For those that might need a refresher, here’s what LG’s latest mid-range device offers in specs. We’re looking at Android 4.4.2 KitKat along with Knock Code which debuted in the LG G Pro 2. It also has a 4.5-inch 800×480 resolution WVGA display, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor running the show, 5MP camera on the back, with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage which is expandable via microSD card slot, and a 2100mAh battery. So it’s definitely not an impressive device, and it may not even be all that impressive compared to the Moto G which is about $20 more and has double the storage, a better display, and a quad-core processor. However, I am liking how companies are stepping up their low-end and mid-range devices now. Making it easier for everyone to grab a new smartphone.
We likely won’t see the LG L70 in the US, unless it’s on a pre-paid carrier like Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile, etc., but if we can we’ll try and get our hands on one to review for those interested.
