LG announces K series and Stylo 3 ahead of CES

LG K Series

In a surprise move, LG has officially revealed five new smartphones ahead of CES 2017. The highlight is the new K series of smartphones, which contains four devices that share similarities, but that are designed for a range of different customers. LG is calling the K series its new line of “mass-tier smartphones”.

LG K10

  • 5.3-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz octa-core processor
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel wide-angle front-facing camera
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • 2800mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

LG K8

  • 5-inch 720p display
  • 1.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2500mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

LG K4

  • 5-inch 854×480 display
  • 1.1GHz quad-core processor
  • 5-megapixel front and rear cameras
  • 2500mAh battery
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

LG K3

  • 4.5-inch 854×480 display
  • 1.1GHz quad-core processor
  • 5-megapixel rear camera
  • 2-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 2100mAh battery
  • Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

As can be gleaned from the specs, the K series ranges from mid-range to the lowest-tier budget ranges. LG hasn’t released pricing information, but we’d expect all of the K series devices to be quite affordable. Specific availability and pricing will be announced at a later date, but we expect the K series to be geared towards developing markets, such as Africa and Southeast Asia.

LG Stylo 3

LG also announced the Stylo 3 ahead of CES.

LG Stylo 3

  • 5.7-inch 720p display
  • 1.5GHz octa-core processor
  • 13-megapixel rear camera
  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Stylus
  • 3200mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat

The Stylo 3 is also a mid-range device, though it sets itself apart by offering a large phablet design and a stylus. Pricing and availability for the Stylo 3 will also be released at a later date.
