LG’s Spirit And Leon Mid-Range Smartphones To Launch In Oz
Unveiled earlier in the year at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Spirit and Leon are set to land in the local market from late April/early May.
The “gently curved” Spirit sports a 4.7″ HD display, is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, comes with 8 GB internal memory and 1 GB RAM, a 2,100 mAh battery, and is decked out with an 8 MP main camera and a 1 MP front camera.
The Leon features a 4.5″ FWVGA display, is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8 GB internal memory and 1 GB RAM, a 1,900 mAh battery, and sports a 5 MP main camera and front VGA camera.
Both the Spirit and the Leon run Android 5.0 Lollipop, feature in-cell touch displays, boosting the sensitivity of the screen, and are 4G compatible.
Both smartphones feature Gesture Shot, designed for taking selfies with a hand gesture, and Glance View, providing the information users most commonly require from their mobile with a quick downward swipe of the screen.
The LG Spirit will be available through Vodafone on pre-paid plans at $199 RRP from Vodafone stores and Mo’s Mobiles from late April, and from selected retailers, including Big W, from May.
The LG Leon will be available through Optus on pre-paid plans at $149 RRP from Optus stores, Kmart, Dick Smith and Harvey Norman.
