"Gently curved" LG Magna priced at $260, now available in India
While everyone is expecting LG to officially unveil its G4 flagship (this will happen tomorrow, on April 28), the company recently started selling another new smartphone: the LG Magna.

Announced back in February, the Magna is a mid-range handset that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and has a "gently curved" design, as LG puts it. Only the back of the device is curved, so its display - a 5-inch 720p one - is still flat. The smartphone further offers an 8 MP rear camera, a 5 MP front-facing camera with Gesture Shot (for quick selfies), 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, a 1W speaker, and a 2540 mAh battery. The Magna is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor (LG doesn't provide more details about this, but we're probably talking about a MediaTek chipset here).

Currently, the LG Magna seems to be available only in India, where it costs 16,500 INR (about $260). In the near future, the new smartphone will likely be released in other markets, though for now we don't know if it's going to be available in North America. You can take a closer look at the LG Magna in our hands-on here (video included).

Update: it appears that the Magna will be launched in Brazil as the LG Prime Plus.
