First L Series III device to ship with Knock Code security
LG is rolling out its previously-announced L90 smartphone this week, with the first devices heading to Russia and other nearby countries. Revealed before Mobile World Congress, the LG L90 will be the first L Series III device to be sold with the manufacturer's new Knock Code security system, one which requires the owner to unlock the device by tapping the display using one of over 86,000 combinations.
Offering a 4.7-inch 540x960 IPS display, the Android 4.4-based L90 has a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm processor at its core, with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and microSD card expansion available. On the back is an 8-megapixel camera, or a 5-megapixel version depending on the market, with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing version, with it also offering a 2,540mAh battery.
The company advises it will be available in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) initially, before becoming available in other countries. LG has yet to price the L90.
