Much of the recent focus may be on LG’s new G Flex 2 and upcoming G4 smartphones, but that hasn’t stopped the company releasing four other new smartphones ahead of the Mobile World Congress. The new handsets are called the Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy.

The smartphones vary in size and specifications, but are all targeted at the midrange segment of the market. But that doesn’t mean that LG is scrimping on the features, the new LG range features handsets with FullHD displays, 8MP rear and 5MP front cameras, Category 4 LTE capable variants, and all handsets, except the Joy in some markets, will arrive with Android 5.0 Lollipop already installed, complete with many of LG’s flagship software features.

LG has a few variations for each of these handsets in the works, depending on the region of sale or supported network type. For example, the LTE versions come with metallic back covers, while the 3G devices feature patterned plastic back covers.
