LG's mid-range Spirit costs just $160, it's now available in Asia
Last week, LG announced no less than four new Android smartphones with interesting names: Magna, Spirit, Leon, and Joy. It looks like the Spirit is the first among them to be launched, as it's now available to buy in Taiwan, where it costs 4,990 TWD - meaning around $159.

Just like the Magna, Leon, and Joy, the LG Spirit runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, and includes many of LG's exclusive software features, like Knock Code, or Glance View.

The new handset sports a 4.7-inch IPS screen with 720 x 1280 pixels - according to LG, this display is the "best in class." The Spirit also offers LTE connectivity, an 8 MP rear camera, 1 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable storage space. The smartphone is powered by a 64-bit, quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, and comes with a 2100 mAh battery.

As you can see in the official LG Spirit renders below, the smartphone has a slightly curved design (just to be clear, its screen isn't curved). What do you think, is this new handset worth $159?
