During the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2014, LG launched their L Series III handset models. The L35 is included in that line, but it wasn?t officially unveiled upfront. Instead, the device has recently been listed in the Korean phone maker?s German website along with the model?s specifications.
Upon going through the LG L35?s features, you will notice that this device is directed to the more budget-conscious and entry-level smartphone market. That is evident with the phone?s dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor running at 1.2 GHz. It is paired with 512 MB worth of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage that can be expanded to 32 GB if you use a MicroSD card. It is also powered by the latest version of Google?s custom OS, the Android 4.4 KitKat.
For first-time smartphone users, or to those who are tired of phablets and 5-inch plus displays, LG L35?s 3.2-inch display is a breath of fresh air. It has a 320 x 480 (HVGA) display resolution resulting to a modest 180 pixels per inch density. The handset?s major drawback is its lack of front camera; the rear camera it sports is capable of capturing 3-megapixel photos.
However, LG is generous enough to still equip the L35 with 3G connectivity along with WiFI 802.11 b/g/n, GPS, and Bluetooth v4.0. It is powered by a battery able to deliver 1,540 mAh worth of juice; that is considered enough since the phone?s screen is smaller and with less pixel density. On that note, LG still maintains via their official site that the model?s battery can bring 350 hours of standby time (if the phone is in 2G network mode) and up to 5 hours of talk time.
In the German site, the handset model is set to be available in single SIM variants. But LG is expected to release a dual-SIM model once it is released in India and other price-mindful markets. Germany is likely to be the first country in Europe where the LG L35 will be available. Gsmarena.com reports that the entry-level handset is apparently available for 399 BRL (or about $ 180) in Brazil. The Korean technology company is yet to announce a worldwide release of LG L35.
