LG debuts L Fino and L Bello for emerging markets

The new low-end 3G smartphones come with some of the software features found on the LG G3 and have the same rear-button design.

LG's two latest handsets, the L Fino and L Bello, aren't exactly the top of the line products you'd expect the company to debut at the upcoming IFA tradeshow in Berlin. For one, it isn't a flagship device that will go head-to-head with the upcoming Galaxy Note 4.

Instead the L Fino and L Bello are "smartly-priced" (read: budget) 3G smartphones that share some of the software features that debuted in the LG G3, such as Knock Code and Touch and Shoot, which lets you take a picture by just tapping on the display.

Furthermore, LG has incorporated its rear button design into both phones, as well as an 8-megapixel rear shooter. Both Android KitKat-powered handsets will pack quad-core processors, with the L Fino clocked at 1.2GHz and the L Bello slightly faster at 1.3GHz.

The L Fino has a 4.5-inch WVGA 800x480-pixel display, 1GB RAM, and 4GB of onboard storage. The L Bello, on the other hand, is slightly larger with a 5-inch FWVGA 854x480-pixel screen, has 1GB RAM, and 8GB of onboard storage.

Pricing was not disclosed, but both handsets will launch first in Latin America, followed by countries in Europe, Asia, and the CIS.
