LG’s got four new Android phones to show us at MWC 2015, but rather than make us wait to see them until our feet touch the ground in Barcelona, LG’s just going to go ahead and announce them tonight.

LG’s four new mid-range Android phones are the Magna, Spirit, Leon, and Joy. They range in screen size from 5 inches down to 4, support 4G LTE, and include some special LG UX features like Glance View, which will let you see important info like the time and new messages by swiping down on the display, even if its off. Here’s how the specs for all four phones break down:

LG Magna

  • 5-inch 1280×720 display
  • 1.2 GHz or 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 8-megapixel rear, 5-megapixel front cameras
  • 8GB of storage
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 2540mAh removable battery
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ 21Mbps
  • 139.7 x 69.9 x 10.2mm
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

LG Sprit

  • 4.7-inch 1280×720 display
  • 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel rear, 1-megapixel front cameras
  • 8GB of storage
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 2100mAh removable battery
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ 21Mbps
  • 133.3 x 66.1 x 9.9mm
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

LG Leon

  • 4.5-inch 854×480 display
  • 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 8-megapixel or 5-megapixel rear, VGA front cameras
  • 8GB or 4GB of storage
  • 1GB or 512MB of RAM
  • 1900mAh removable battery
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ 21Mbps
  • 122.7 x 64.0 x 10.9mm
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

LG Joy

  • 4-inch 800×480 display
  • 1.2GHz dual-core processor
  • 5-megapixel rear, VGA front cameras
  • 4GB of storage
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 1900mAh removable battery
  • 4G LTE, HSPA+ 21Mbps
  • 122.7 x 64.0 x 11.9mm
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop or Android 4.4 KitKat

There are a few other details worth noting about these new LG phones. For example, several of them incorporate LG’s rear button setup. The Magna and Spirit also have a “gently curved design” that help them better fit in your hand as well as In-Cell Touch that helps to make the phones slimmer, minimizes bezels, and offers faster touch recognition.

LG hasn’t said how much the Magna, Spirit, Leon, or Joy will cost, but considering their specs, it’s unlikely that they’ll be too pricey. Overall they look like some respectable mid-range smartphones that offer features that’ve trickled down from LG’s flagship phones, but at below-flagship prices.
