We first got a look at LG’s L90 back during MWC, going hands-on with the model alongside the rest of the new L-series devices. A little bit later, we started hearing about LG’s release plans for the L90, and a leak (above) suggested the phone was destined for T-Mobile in the States. While the carrier still hasn’t gone official with its plans, a new leak manages to fill us in on the details, revealing plans to begin sales later this month.
According to the leaked roadmap, T-Mobile plans to introduce the L90 on April 23 (a date that could well be shaping up to be a pretty big one for smartphones across multiple platforms). For the moment, that’s all we have to go on, with no mention of pricing.
Based on the specs the L90 offers (4.7-inch qHD display, 1GB RAM, 1.2GHz quad-core SoC), we’d hope to see a price tag that reflects the hardware’s limitations, but even these mid-rangers can have a nasty habit of launching with a price that’s quite a bit inflated from what they seem to be worth. Normally we’d look for such devices to be free-on-contract, but this being T-Mobile, we’ll have to stomach the full retail price – fingers crossed that it’s not prohibitively high.
