LG added a new device to its portfolio of mid range devices. The newly added device is the LG L80 that features a 5 inch display and runs Android 4.4 Kitkat OS. LG L80 comes in single and dual SIM versions. As of now it is launched exclusively in Indonesia. The price of the phone in Indonesia is approximately IDR 2.5 million which when converted to Indian currency is approx. Rs. 13,000.
Except the large 5 inch display the specifications of the device is pretty low according to todays standards. The display itself offers just 800 x 480 p WVGA resolution. It is powered by a dual core cortex A7 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz along with 1 GB of RAM. Qualcomm MSM8210 Snapdragon 200 is the chipset used. The internal storage memory is 4 GB. It can be expanded further 32 GB using a micro SD card.
The rear camera in the device comes with a 5 MP sensor and the front camera may be a VGA cam, which is yet to be confirmed. The camera features Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection and panorama modes. There is accelerometer and proximity sensor in this device.
LG L80 comes with Android 4.4 Kitkat OS which sure is its advantage. The connectivity features includes micro USB V2.0, Bluetooth V4.0, and WiFi along with 2G and 3G connectivity options.
The company, however, is yet to release the flagship for the year 2014. But there are rumors and leaks of LG G3 happening quite often indicating that the launch is not far. Mean while we already have a handful of devices and most of them run on Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS.
For easy comparison I have listed the key features of device that I have mentioned above placed along side LG L90.
