The Life’s Good crew has aspirations of making waves in the smartphone market with its upcoming announcement of the G5 later this month. Before that, though, the company wants to launch a brand new phone series with a mid-range price point in mind.
Each phone in the X series has a unique feature to make it stand out and give it a boost from its high-end devices while avoiding the high-end price tag. The X series joins a growing letter-based lineage, with the G, V, and K series coming before it. LG calls the X series “specialist” devices, with that one feature that will hopefully make it stand out in the crowded market.
First up is the X screen. Like the V10, the X screen has a pair of screens on the front, with the larger of the pair measuring in at 4.93 inches. The second, meanwhile, measures in at 1.76 inches. That second display will let users control their music, answer calls, and access their favorite apps. It can also let you manage notifications without activating the main display. Under the hood there’s a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a battery that comes in at 2300mAh. There’s a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera on the other side. It’ll boast 16GB of built-in storage, and LG says it’s running Android 6.0 right out of the box.
The other device is the X camera. As the name suggests, this one’s all about the cameras. Specifically on the back, as LG has equipped the handset with 13 and 5-megapixel sensors. These cameras offer the “most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone,” according to LG. There’s also an 8-megapixel camera on the front. Other features include a octa-core processor, with a 5.2-inch 1080p HD display, and 2GB of RAM. It’s running Android 6.0, and has a battery measured in at 2520mAh, and 16GB of built-in storage.
LG says the X series will launch first in “key markets” in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Unfortunately, the company hasn’t divulged just yet how much they devices will cost.
What do you think of the new devices?
