While there is no word on when MetroPCS will start selling the LG L70, "soon" is probably a good guess. The carrier should offer the new handset for a low price. In Europe, an unlocked L70 costs less than $250, while in China the phone is available for around $160 - $170.
The LG L70 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and offers LG’s new Knock Code screen unlocking feature. Other than that, the handset comes with a 4.5-inch IPS display (480 x 800 pixels), 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor clocked at 1.2GHz, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2,100 mAh battery.

Another new L Series smartphone from LG that’s seemingly headed to the US is the LG L90. This should be released by T-Mobile later this month, on April 23. Perhaps MetroPCS will launch its L70 at about the same time? We'll let you know.
