There will be a range of colours and the option of a window-style case, like the LG G2 has, which allows the user to peak at part of the screen for clocks, weather, media controls and other functions without opening the case.

I’ve reviewed a few of the previous L Series phones over the past two years since they were initially launched at Mobile World Congress 2012, and whilst they’ve had some useful features and individual looks I have always been underwhelmed by them at their price-points. No prices have been revealed yet, but with these specs I think they’ll struggle against the Motorola Moto G unless they are dirt cheap.

The latest version of Android being installed on entry level smartphones is a very welcome sight, one that I’m hoping to see more and more in the future, so well done for that LG.
