LG's new L70 and L40 smartphones are available now (in Europe)

Two of LG’s latest lower-end handsets, the L70 and L40, are now available to purchase in Europe - which is the first region to get the devices. Amazon is currently selling both these L Series smartphones in Germany and Italy (see the source links at the end of the article), and we assume that a wider availability will follow shortly.

The LG L70 isn’t as cheap as you’d expect. Although the handset will be sold in China for the equivalent of $160 beginning next month, prices start at about $246 (€179) in Europe.

The L70 runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and sports a 4.5-inch display with 480 x 800 pixels and a low pixel per inch density (199 ppi). Other features include Knock Code, a 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, dual-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 1GB of RAM, and 4GB of expandable internal memory.

Also running Android 4.4 KitKat, the LG L40 can be bought for as low as $122 (€88.24). The L40 is a pretty small smartphone, featuring a 3.5-inch display with 320 x 480 pixels, Knock Code, 3MP rear camera, dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and the same 4GB of expandable internal memory.

Before deciding if any of these two handsets are for you, you should check out our LG L70 hands-on here, and our LG L40 hands-on here.

Well, these are very boring. 512 RAM means slow. 4GB internal storage means only very few apps. Even the processor in L70 has an old architecture. Xperia L, Lumia 520 - both of them older and superior (with similar prices).

Are these dual SIM or not? Initial reports mention Dual SIM, but I don't see it on the tech specs. Maybe two different options? Are dual sims not going to be available in the EU offering?
