LG already unveiled the G Pro 2 earlier this week and it also seems the company will be ready to show off several more devices at Mobile World Congress. A trio of the mid-range L Series handsets were announced late last night — L40, L70 and L90 — and they all run KitKat. LG notes the launch is scheduled sometime in Q1 and most likely hit emerging markets as they are 3G-only, sans LTE.

Specs wise, the L40, L70 and L90 have 3.5-inch, 4.5 inch, 4.7-inch displays and a minimum 1.2GHz dual-core processors, an optional “Quick Window cover” case and familiar design lines to several LG flagship handsets, including a “delicate finish” and “checkered pattern on the back.” Below are the complete specs and a 2-minute ‘design story’ of how the L Series III came to life.

    Only the L90 is worth a look if it’s off contract for less than $300. The rest are kids’ phones or destined for the developing world.

      Agreed. I read rumours that Samsung might get rid of the physical home button on the Galaxy S5, which I have grown to love. If they do, I’m going to check out the L90. At least now I have another option. Never owned a LG Android with their own UI. I had the Nexus 4.

      I also like the physical button. I made the move to Nexus for a few phones but went back to Galaxy line and I’m not dissapointed. (Nexus S then GNEX then N4 traded for Note II)

    *and will never be updated from kitkat

  • formulaphone

    So where’s KK for my G2…?

  • cs098

    There’s hoping that kitkat will make these budget devices usable. LG may not have the prettiest skin but it does not bog down like touchwiz.

  • thedesmodes

    The L40 looks kinda like the Samsung Galaxy Ace.

  • LeafsFanGirl

    If LG’s logo wasn’t on the phone, I would have thought it was a Samsung. I’m not trashing LG at all. Just pointing that out.

  • blzd

    The L90 should have great battery life with those specs. Can’t see how it can compare in price to the Moto G however.

  • geokilla

    I’m not even going to ask for KK for my Optimus G. But at least give us Android 4.3.1!

    Funny how at first glance I was like hey look the Galaxy Family then I saw LG… Talk about copy-cat! They should at least pick differnt shades/colors…
