LG ADDS LG MAGNA INTO ITS MID-RANGE LTE SMARTPHONE SERIES IN SINGAPORE
New Smartphone Impresses with Stunning Design, Responsive In-Cell Touch Displays and LG’s Intuitive User Experience
SINGAPORE, JULY 20, 2015 —LG Electronics announced the launch of LG Magna LTE, the new addition joining LG’s mid-range smartphone series. This premium but affordable series comprised of Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy was first unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) where it was noted for bringing sophisticated design, optimized performance and effortless user experience to a broader range of consumers.
By combining the most essential hardware with LG’s premium design elements and user experience, LG has created the perfect balance of style and usability. The LG Magna LTE is designed to fit more comfortably in the palm of one’s hand with its subtle 3000mm radius curved display. In-cell touch display technology on the Magna brings the on-screen images closer to the fingers for improved sensitivity and more direct touch response. In addition, LG is carrying over popular UX featuresoriginally designed for its premium smartphones. Gesture Shot, for instance, makes it easy to take selfies with a hand gesture that starts a three-second countdown. Glance View allows users to quickly access key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a simple downward swipe of the screen, even when the display is off.
“We want to cater to customers who are looking for mid-range priced smartphones that have both advanced features and sleek design. With that in mind, we designed LG Magna to inherit features from our premium flagship smartphones such as Gesture Shot and the ergonomic curved design. We believe the LG Magna will be at attractive option for consumers in Singapore,” said Mr. Scott Jung, Managing Director of LG Electronics Singapore.
The LG Magna will be available from 25 July 2015 in Gold and Titan colors, retailing for $328 from M1 and StarHub.
