LG L70 to be available globally starting April for just $160

LG has already announced that its L90 smartphone is ready for shipping, but it hasn’t disclosed when the L70 and L40 handsets will make it to the market and for how much. Well, thanks to a new report and a listing online, we know that the middle device will be launched next month for a very-affordable price of just above US$160.

According to ePrice, the LG L70 will go on sale through Chunghwa Telecom in Taiwan starting April 1 for TWD 4,990. However, a listing spotted on Amazon.de has the phone priced much higher, at €179 which is around US$245. No availability details have been provided, but PhoneArena highlights that the phone’s UI shows April 1 which could be the launch date for Germany as well.

The LG L70 made its debut at the MWC 2014 and it’s part of the company’s third generation L Series. Dressed in a premium-looking body, the phone comes with entry-level specifications, yet it runs on Android 4.4 KitKat. LG has also equipped it with various software enhancements such as Knock Code, Guest Mode, QuickMemo, Plug & Pop and QSlide 2.5 amongst others. Even QuickWindow cases have been designed for the smartphone.
