(PC World) – LG Electronics is bringing features from its more expensive smartphones into the hotly contested low-end segment of the market.
On Thursday, the company announced the L Bello and L Fino, two 3G Android-based smartphones that echo some aspects of the design of LG’s G3 flagship model.
They have buttons on the back just like the G3, and the L Bello’s plastic back is reminiscent of the texture used on the G3. The material is different but it has the same “metallic skin design” for a similar look and feel, an LG spokeswoman said via email. Both models look more sophisticated than their predecessors.
The smartphones have also inherited the G3’s QuickCircle cases, which give access to frequently used functions such as calling, text messaging, music and camera all from the window without opening the cover.
