LG announces six new Android phones at MWC


LG LG has just unveiled a huge lineup of Android phone at the Mobile World Congress. There are six of them in total including the G Pro 2 phablet, a brand-new F70 with LTE and the pocket friendly G2 mini.

The LG G Pro 2 is the company's new flagship phablet, which comes with a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization, which records 4K video. That makes it the second U.S. phone after the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to do 4K; of course, there aren't many devices you can play 4K video back on right now. The camera also shoots 1080p video at 60 frames per second, and lower-resolution video at up to 120 fps.

Other intriguing features include the ability to use your white display as a "flash" when you're taking selfies in a dark room, and a filter that lets you adjust the depth of field in your photos in software.

The new Knock Code, helps solves a real problem on the G2: with the power button on the back, you needed a way to turn the phone on without picking it up or flipping it over. Knock Code lets you enter a pattern of taps in quadrants of the screen which function as a lock code. 

The Split-screen mode, first seen on the G Flex (and before that, on the Galaxy Note series) lets you divide the screen in half to browse two websites simultaneously. The G Pro 2 also features 1W speaker, which LG promises will offer great quality audio on the device.


LG G2 mini

The LG G2 Mini isn't just a scaled-down version of the LG G2. It's powered-down as well, a high-midrange phone with a couple of the G2's tricks, most notably the buttons on the back. Since it's much smaller than the G2 and fits easily in one hand, there's no real reason for the buttons to be on the back, but there they are.

The G2 Mini's most striking feature is under the hood. It'll come in two models. Both the "world model" and the "Latin America model" will have the same body, with the same 4.7-inch, 960-by-540 screen. But the Latin American version will be the first phone we've ever seen with Nvidia's Tegra 4i processor, running at 1.7GHz, and it'll have a 13-megapixel camera on the back. The global model with come with a 1.2Ghz Qualcomm processor and 8-megapixel camera.


LG F70

The LG F70 is likely to be a low-key best-seller when it shows up on U.S. carriers free with contract. It has a 1.2Ghz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 4.5-inch 800-by-480 screen, 4GB of storage with a MicroSD card slot, and a 5-megapixel main camera in a hand-friendly. It's going to be the first of at least three new F-series phones, all with LTE.


LG L Series III

Last but not least, we have the three entry level members of the L-series III - the L40, L70, and L90.

The LG L40 features a 3.5 inch touch display, 4GB of internal storage, a 3 megapixel rear camera, and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 512MB of RAM. The LG L70 features a 4.5 inch touch display, 4GB of internal storage, an 8MP or 5MP rear camera (depending on market), a VGA front-facing camera, and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM. The LG L90 features a 4.7 inch touch display, 8GB of internal storage, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 1.3 megapixel front camera and a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM.
The F70 and new L-series have the old QSlide multitasking, along with the new Knock Code and Clip Tray, which lets you put multiple things on your clipboard.

None of these phones have been confirmed for the U.S. yet, but we expect the G-Series and F-Series devices to be offered through several U.S. carriers within the next six months.
