LG likes to announce devices and different accessories prior to a trade show where they will actually be announced or showcased. Late Monday night, the company followed its past and announced its new line of X series smartphones.
Basically, this represents a new line of phones in the mid-range level from LG with the line offering one exceptional feature.
The X screen. This phone uses the unique second screen of the V10 and makes it available for a more affordable price though the exact pricing has not been released.
It will have a primary display of 4.93 inches beside a second screen of 1.76 inches, but the resolution of the second display was not stated. It did say it was HD.
Otherwise, the X screen appears basic: quadcore 1.2GHz processor, 2GB RAM, storage of 16GB, 2,300mAh battery, two cameras with 8 MP and 13 MP and Marshmallow.
Next is the X cam. This is probably what you would expect, putting a focus on its camera. Rather than just having a single front and rear camera, it had two back cameras one of which is 5 MP and the other 13 MP.
The LG press release did not go into any detail about the function of its rear cameras, so that will likely be something LG wants to save for the upcoming Congress.
Again, this is just a basic smartphone when looking at its other specs: a full HD display of 5.2- inches, octa-core 1.14 GHz processor, RAM of 2GB, storage of 16GB, a 2,520mAh battery and Marshmallow.
It has not been mentioned when the handsets will be released or where LG is expecting to make them available to open sales.
It is likely that specific information like that will be released during the upcoming show.
These two mid-range smartphones are added to the two new Windows 10 phones that have been released showing that companies are going after group of potential buyers with low-priced more accessible handsets.
