Are you guys ready for the next offering of LG phones powered by an Android OS? Say hello to LG L90! This phone boasts of an IPS LCD capacitive 4.7-inch touchscreen with 960 x 540 display and the latest Android OS V4.42 (KitKat). It was recently revealed in the MWC (a show where the hottest devices are first introduced) and will be available in stores in a matter of days, that is, if you are in Russia or nearby countries. The rest of the world would just have to wait a bit longer, hopefully not that long because according to the company?s press release, it would arrive in other markets after its launch in Eastern Europe.

The LG L90 has a Cortex-A7 1.2 GHZ quad-core processor and an MSM8226 Snapdragon chipset by Qualcomm. It has 2 cameras, the primary is either 5MP or 8MP depending on the market while the secondary camera is 1.3MP and both cameras are capable of video recording. The L90 also has the ?basics? included in a smart phone such as internet capability, GPS, FM radio, Java MIDP emulator and of course SMS. Some add-on applications include a photo-viewer/editor, document viewer, organizer and media player. It has an internal 8GB memory and 1GB RAM and supports microSD card up to 32GB. The L90 is available in black and white casings.

The LG L90 has extra length because of the physical keys added to the device but still comfortably sits in the hand. The rear cover is textured to give the user a better grip of the device. What?s great about the device is the inclusion of an IR (infra-red) in the handset which enables the device can control other devices that support IR such as TV?s, DVD players, etc.

The LG L90 hopes to stand out in an already saturated market with competitors such as Motorola with its Moto G model and Sony?s Experia M2. The company is banking on its product pricing to ensnare the consumers with an initial offer of ?209.99 for SIM-free handsets which is about $350.00. Not bad for today?s benchmark in smart phone prices.
