It’s just days before LG’s special event takes place on February 21. This is just a day before the MWC event begins in Barcelona.
Rumors have been doing rounds regarding the release of a new LG G5 smartphone during this event. LG confirmed this rumor by unveiling the phone’s casing just a few days ago. Further confirmations say that the Life’s Good team will be unveiling a new LG X series of phones that will accompany the company’s G, K as well as V series.
Each LG X series phone has a special feature
According to the latest reports, the teased X series is known as the “specialist” thanks to the fact that each of the phones in the lineup comes with a unique feature to distinguish it from the others. The even better side of the story is that the phones come at a cut-price, meaning LG is targeting the mid-level markets with these devices.
LG X Cam and LG X Screen specs
The names of LG’s X series smartphones are LG X Cam and LG X Screen. These are actually the first two phones to be launched in this series. The former comes with one of the best snappers around. On the rear you will find a 13MP lens while the selfie camera stands at 5MP. According to LG, these snappers will offer the “most advanced experience in a mass-tier handset.” This phone also comes with a lone 8MP snapper on its face, something that makes the X Cam’s photography its biggest selling point.
On the display, this phone has a 5.2-inch screen that has a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels, an 8-core CPU, a RAM of 2GB, onboard storage of 16GB and is powered by the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The X Cam is equipped with a not-so-decent battery unit of 2,530mAh, but it should keep you on through a larger part of the day.
On the other hand, the LG X Screen drops the double camera ability in favor of double screens. The primary panel has a 4.93-inch display size and a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels whereas the secondary panel has a 1.76-inch display size with a resolution of 520 by 80 pixels. With the help of the secondary screen, which appears on top of the primary screen, you can access your favorite apps, play music, check notifications, battery level, receive calls and so on without activating the primary screen.
To power the X Screen, LG went for a 4-core CPU, a RAM of 2GB and the same Android M. However, this device has a smaller battery unit of 2,300mAh. The snappers will still get you top-notch shots thanks to the 13MP on the rear and 8MP on the front. In addition to a microSD card slot, you will also get 16GB of onboard storage.
At the moment, there is no word regarding the pricing of these phones, but we hope to get more details at the upcoming MWC 2016 tech show.
