New Delhi: LG will unveil a new line of mid-range smartphones - Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy - next month at Mobile World Congress 2015 (MWC 2015).

According to LG, the LG Magna and Spirit are designed to be fit more comfortably in palm of one's hand with its gently curved design.

The four devices will be available in both LTE and 3G versions to expand its appeal in the mass-tier segment with different products for different networks. The LTE and 3G versions of each model share nearly identical design cues with metallic back covers distinguishing the LTE models while the 3G devices feature patterned plastic back covers.

The LG Magna features a 5-inch in-cell touch display and a quad-core chipset. The LG Magna is equipped with an 8-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel front shooter, and a 2,540mAh removable battery.

The LG Spirit features a 4.7-inch in-cell touch display and an 8-megapixel camera. In-cell touch technology makes the phones look slimmer while maximising their display areas and minimising the bezels, says LG.

The LG Leon has a 4.5-inch display, while the LG Joy, features a 4-inch display. With the new mid-range lineup, LG is carrying over UX features originally designed for its premium smartphones.

LG has extended the distance from which the camera can recognise gestures to 1.5 meters to accommodate selfie sticks. Glance View, which debuted on the G Flex2, lets users quickly access key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a simple downward swipe of the screen, even while the display is off.

LG's new mid-range collection will begin its global rollout this week in select markets.
