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.
