Penetration of the latest version of the world’s most popular mobile operating system - KitKat Android 4.4 - is still relatively low, with the official Android Developers figure sitting at just 1.4% for the 7-day period ending January 8.
Inevitably MWC 2014 will give things a much-needed jolt, and LG in particular looks set to lend a helping hand, with no less than five new KitKat Android 4.4 devices seemingly in the works.
PhoneArena sums up the five new LG phones, which were spotted on HTML5TEST. They are the LG D830, LG LS740, LG D410, LG D320, and LG MS323.
Not a great deal is known about the devices at the moment, but it’s speculated that the LG D830 could be a successor to the 5.5in LG Optimus G Pro phablet, called the LG G Pro 2 (in keeping with LG’s new Optimus-free naming convention).
The only other giveaway is in the model number LG LS740, which ties in with recent releases on US network Sprint. Bluetooth Sig has already confirmed LTE for the LG LS740, but that’s all we have for now.
We expect to learn more about these bad boys in the coming weeks, and inevitably at least some of them will launch at MWC 2014 at the end of February. LG tends to go handset crazy in Barcelona.
