Besides churning out flagship smartphones such as the G3 and G Pro 2, LG also sets its sight on the entry-level market segment with two of its newest L series smartphones. 

Known as the L Bello and L Fino, the two new L series smartphones will have an official unveiling at IFA 2014 next month. They are positioned as entry-level smartphones for consumers in emerging markets. As such, their specs are nothing to shout about.

Both phones retain the signature Rear Key button design first introduced on the G2 and sport an 8-megapixel rear camera. They also will ship with LG's UX interface as promised in an earlier press release. Below is a quick overview of their specs:
