The cancellation of MWC 2020 will not stop the barrage of new smartphone announcements and LG Electronics becomes one of the first to go ahead with its planned releases, with the launch of its new lineup of mid-range Android smartphones – the 2020 K Series.
Three new sleeker, slimmer and more stylish smartphones have been revealed – the K61, K51S and K41S – all of which have a major focus on delivering premium camera features to consumers.
Although prices have yet to be officially confirmed, LG said that these new devices will be available for purchase in Q2 in the US, followed by select markets in Asia and Europe not long after.
“The key value propositions of LG’s K Series are advanced technologies and competitive pricing. We believe the K Series will be the most competitive smartphones in its category offering features consumers really appreciate,“ said Chang Ma, senior vice-president of LG’s Product Strategy Group.
The K Series is designed to deliver first-class user experience with upgraded cameras, multimedia functions and improved all-around performance without breaking the bank, and have inherited advanced features first introduced in LG’s premium offerings.
Each device in the lineup delivers a rear-quad camera array, which consists of a high-resolution main camera, wide angle lens, depth sensor and a macro lens – a first in the K Series.
The 48MP main lens in the top-of-the-line K61 is the highest resolution camera ever offered in an LG smartphone, while the 32MP camera in the K51S also surpasses the pixel count of any previous LG device.
The K61 delivers a super sharp 6.5-inch 19.5:9 FHD+ FullVision Display, while the K51S features a slightly narrower 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ FullVision Display, both featuring an unobtrusive punch-hole cutout for the camera. The K41S features a 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ FullVision Display.
All three 2020 K Series phones are designed with cinematically proportioned displays with thinner bezels than their predecessors to improve the immersive viewing experience.
It also comes with a robust 4,000mAh battery, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound for realistic 7.1-channel experiences with headphones, and MIL-STD-810G standard for improved durability.
