LG have announced the Australian availability for two new smartphones in the L Series range, the L40 and the L70, but is yet to reveal the prices of the entry-level to mid-tier models, which were first unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in February this year.

The L70 will be available at the beginning of May and has a 4.5-inch screen and a 5 megapixel camera. The L40 will arrive in early June and has a 3.5-inch display and a 3 megapixel camera.

Both use the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, making them compatibile with the latest Android apps, and have a dual core 1.2GHz processor.

General manager, marketing at LG Electronics Australia Lambro Skropidis said, “consumers’ needs and desires have been at the core of the design process for the L Series.

“From the inclusion of the Android 4.4 KitKat to the standout design and the suite of LG software features, we are confident we have created great products that our consumers will love.”

Both phones include features such as KnockCode which lets the user unlock the phone using a pre-set sequence of taps, Plug and Pop which suggests apps for accessories that are plugged into the device and holding the ‘down’ volume key automatically activates the camera when the phone is asleep.

The phones will also be compatible with Quick Window cases, which allow the user to see part of the screen without opening the case.
