LG has announced they will be bringing their newest 3G L Series smartphones – the L Fino and L Bello – to IFA, in Berlin in September.
LG has made their name on the L Series smartphones, now on their third series – the LIII series has continued the line of well priced smartphones with excellent design, and quality specifications for a great price. LG has had a tradition of moving features from their premium G Series line down to lower end models, this continues with the L Fino and L Bello which are being released with a new feature for the L Series – Rear Mounted buttons.
The Volume rocker and power buttons will be mounted on the rear along with the 8MP rear camera, just like the LG G2, G Flex and now the G3, allowing LG to deliver a phone which continues the design language of the G3 in their lower end phones. The Camera is being pushed as a premium specification, which LG says will ensure that users get ‘quality, blur-free images that are perfect for sharing’.
There’s also features from the G3 UX, which LG announced yesterday would be appearing on their upcoming smartphones such as Touch & Shoot, Gesture Shot and Knock Code. There will also be the QuickCircle case accessory made available for both the L Fino and L Bello.
