CES isn’t meant to be where technology companies announce phones. That’s more typically something you’d see at Mobile World Congress, but that didn’t stop Asus from teasing its next ZenFone line this week.
LG has gone one better, outright revealing what it will announce at CES. Forget one or maybe two ZenFones, because LG’s bringing in new phones in bulk, with 5 new handsets set to make their debut in Las Vegas in a fortnight’s time.
Don’t expect a replacement for the LG G5 though. LG has four K Series phones, and a brand new Stylus smartphone for us, all of which are strong mid-range devices suitable for all. While we officially meet the K3, K4, K8, and K10, along with the Stylus 3, there’s no mention of an X-Series phone called the X Calibur, which was also rumored for launch. Perhaps LG’s holding that one back as a surprise?
LG K series Includes:
The LG K3 will feature a 4.5-inch 480 display, a 2MP front camera and a 5MP rear camera, and a removable 2,100mAh battery. It’s powered by a 1.1GHz Quad-Core processor and has 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. The LG K3 runs on Android Marshmallow.
The LG K4 has a 5-inch 480p display, 5MP front and rear cameras, and 1.1GHz Quad-Core chipset. It has 1GB of RAM, 8GB internal storage and runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and a removable 2,500mAh battery.
The LG K8 targets photographers and camera enthusiasts particularly those who like to take selfies. It has a 5MP front camera and a 13MP rear one. Both cameras have Auto Shot and Gesture Shot UX features.
It has a 5-inch 720p display, 1.4 GHz Octa-Core processor, a removable 2,500mAh battery, 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB internal storage.
The LG K10 is considered the best among the K Series LG phones. It sports a 5.3-inch display along with 720p or 277ppi. The LG K10 has a 2.5D Arc Glass design and a metallic U-frame. It’s run by Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, powered by a 1.5 GHz Octa-Core processor, and 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM. It comes out with 16GB or 32GB internal memory.
The K10 has two cameras, a 5MP front camera, and a 13MP rear one. It also utilizes a removable 2,800mAh battery.
LG Stylus 3
The LG Stylus 3 is the high-end one in the bunch. Its 720p display measures 5.7 inches while also having an 8MP front camera and 13MP rear camera. It runs on Android Nougat and powered by a 1.5GHz 8-core chipset. The LG Stylus 3 has 3GB of RAM, 16GB internal memory, and a removable 3,200mAh battery.
