LG announces L Fino and L Bello mid range smartphones

LG announces L Fino and L Bello mid range smartphonesOver the past two years, we have seen some interesting new releases from LG. First, it was the LG G2 flagship which came with rear power and volume buttons. While it took some time for consumers to adjust to the new design, in the end, it was said that the new button placement was actually helpful.

This year, the company continued the same back button design but with a more polished and refined overall finish in the new G3. And the company plans to take this popular design to many of the other mid-range smartphones too.

Today, LG has announced that it will release two new handsets in the market namely the LG L Fino and the LG L Bello. These handsets will be a part of LG’s mid-range ‘L’ lineup and will sport premium UI features at a budget price tag.

While these phones may look like G3, their specs are no way near the specs on the original flagship. And LG does not intent to market it as a premium smartphone; instead it’s aimed at the teenage set and emerging 3G markets worldwide.

L Bello will be the better of two and will come with a 5 inch display. On the other hand, you get only a 4.5 inch one on the L Fino. Both will have quad core processors with the one in the Bello clocked at 1.3Ghz while the one in Fino clocked at 1.2Ghz. Further, both these devices will come with 1GB RAM.  As for storage, Bello comes with 8GB internal memory while Fino has 4GB storage.

Camera modules on both the devices are the same i.e. an 8MP shooter. However, Bello being the better model will have AutoFocus and a 1MP front camera while Fino will only have a VGA front cam.

Naturally with the large screen, LG went with a larger 2,540 mAh battery pack on the Bello while there’s only a 1,900 mAh one on the Fino.

Both the devices will run Android 4.4.2 Kitkat version and will support 3G HSPA+ speeds upto 21Mbps.

LG has smartly included many of the premium UI features on these devices. For example, you get Gesture Shot, Knock Code, Front Camera light and even Quick Circle Case on these mid rangers.

LG will officially launch L Bello and L Fino at IFA Berlin where it will also announce their price and availability. For now, we know that these handsets will first retail in Latin America, followed by other markets in Asia, Europe and CIS.
