When it comes to smartphones, most companies are focusing on creating powerful handsets with huge screens, super fast processors, amazing cameras, and so on. Interestingly enough LG has decided to go the other way, and has recently announced the LG L35. This is probably one of LG’s least powerful, low-end handsets to date, but we can only assume that it will appeal to those who don’t have the cash for one of LG’s higher-end handsets.
Pricing has not yet been determined, and it is expected to be released in European countries such as Germany, Spain, Italy, Portugal, and Hungary. As far as the specs are concerned, like we said, it’s not LG’s best effort to date, but it should get the job done. The LG L35 will pack a small 3.2-inch 320×480 HVGA display. If this was 2011, this phone would fit right in. The L35 will also be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset with a dual-core processor clocked at 1.2GHz.
The GPU on the phone is the Adreno 302, which is also the same GPU used on the Moto E. The phone will be accompanied by 512MB of RAM, a 3MP rear-facing camera, a 1,540mAh battery, and 4GB of onboard storage that can be expanded via microSD for up to an additional 32GB. LG will be bundling Android 4.4 KitKat with the phone, along with features such as Capture Plus, Knock Code, and so on.
As you can see, it’s not the most powerful phone we’ve seen. In fact even for low-end phones, this is surprising, but if you want a cheap phone to give to your kids, or you want a device that can double as an MP3 player, then perhaps this could be a low-cost alternative.
