LG Announces Five New Smartphones


With two weeks to go until the opening of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, LG Electronics announced that it will unveil five new smartphones at the event: four new mass-tier K Series smartphones an a new Stylus 3.

The K Series, according to a post in LG Newsroom, promises to meet “the diverse needs of customers” by having multiple models that cater to certain user habits. From the looks of things, the K10, with a 5.3-inch HD In-cell Touch Display, is more for users who use their devices to watch movies; the K8, with a 5MP front camera and 13MP rear camera as well as the Auto Shot and Gesture Shot features, is for mobile photographers; the K4, with a slim profile, removable battery, and micro SD slot, is for the user who wants their phone to fit into any situation; finally, the small K3, also with a microSD slot and removable battery, is for someone who doesn’t want their phone to get in the way.

The Stylus 3, however, is probably the most interesting of the five phones. It presents itself as a cheaper take on Samsung’s Galaxy note series, coming with a 1.8mm diameter fiber-tip stylus, a fingerprint scanner, Screen-off Memo, 5.7 inch display, octa-core processor, and a 3,00mAh removable battery.
