It does seem as though those who are in the market for a mid-range handset will have the LG L70 to choose from, especially if you happen to be a MetroPCS subscriber. The thing about the LG L70 is, it is not entirely a new handset, having been announced by LG before Mobile World Congress kicked off in February earlier this year, being part of the new L Series III along the way.
The LG L70 will run on Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box, which is uncharacteristically a departure for a non-flagship device, but we will not be complaining. @evleaks had leaked out a press render of the LG L70 complete with the MetroPCS carrier branding printed on the handset.
In terms of its hardware specifications, we should be expecting a 4.5” 800×480 IPS touchscreen, an 8 MP or a 5MP rear camera, a VGA front camera, a dual-core 1.2GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 2,100mAh battery.
In the video above, you would definitely be interested to know more about what Nokia has done when it comes to research and development for the future of sustainability in the world of consumer electronics. The Solar Armor that you see above is an amusing fashion statement, but it gets the job done – keeping a Nokia Lumia 1520 powered and charged the entire day, relying on indoor light alone.
Does this mean that we will be able to kiss goodbye to the standard issue phone charger? Don’t throw yours away just yet, as such a “solar armor” still needs plenty of work before it can be perfected and incorporated into everyday clothing. After all, walking out dressed like that is definitely going to draw a whole lot of awkward stares in your direction than nods of approval.
