First Look: LG Optimus L70 serves up 4G and Android KitKat for $50

1:29 /

Available on prepaid carrier MetroPCS, the Optimus L70 features a dual-core processor, a 4.5-inch screen, and a 5-megapixel camera.

[MUSIC] Hello everybody it's Lynn La from CNET and today we're going to take a look at the LGOptimus L70 for Metro Pcs. This 4g device sports a simple design and a smooth back side that fends off finger prints. It's also decorate with a subtle honey comb like pattern that I think makes it stand out. The handset has a 4.5 inch touch screen which includes an 800 by 480 pixel resolution. And Corning gorilla glass three. On the side here is a quick button that you can set to launch an app of your choice, like the alarm clock or Chrome. And it doubles as a shutter button when the camera is open. In addition, the phone runs Android 4.4 Kit Kat and has a few signature UI features from LG like quick memo and not code, which enables users to unlock the devices display using a customizable tapping pattern. You'll also get a 5 megapixel camera with flash that shoots panoramic or in continuous mode and a VGA front facing camera. This phone is powered by a one point two gigahertz dual core processor. And a two point oh four [UNKNOWN] hour battery. Which has the reported talk time of up to 13 hours. Additional features include four gigs of internal storage up to 32 gigs of expandable memory via a micro sd card slot and bluetooth four point oh. For interested musers the device is currently available. Without a contract for $49. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out Metro PCS' Optimus L70. [MUSIC]
