Ahead of Mobile World Congress next week, LG has unveiled a pair of smartphones and a new mid-tier series.
Dubbed the X cam and X screen, these smartphones are "designed for customers who do not want or need all the bells and whistles that come with today's high-end phones but still desire a great camera or advanced display." The X Series devices, unlike most smartphones, have "one exceptional feature" which is why LG is calling them "specialist" devices. As their names suggest, the X cam and X screen emphasize premium cameras and display features, respectively. "The X cam sports dual cameras on the rear and delivers one of the most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone," explained LG. "The other model, appropriately named X screen, is equipped with an 'Always-on' Second Screen which until now has only been available on LG's premium V10." The X cam features a 5.2 inch FHD In-cell Touch display, 13 megapixel and 5 megapixel rear cameras, 1.14 GHz octa-core processor, and 2 GB of RAM while the X screen packs a 4.93 inch DH In-cell Touch display with a 1.76 inch LCD secondary display, 13 MP rear camera, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and 2 GB of RAM.
"Everyone has a favorite smartphone feature," said Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company on the new devices. "At LG, we think there's room for devices that do one thing very well and that customers shouldn't have to pay for features that they don't want. At the end of the day, we're committed to offering consumers more choices." The X series will launch in select markets in Asia, Europe, and Latin America starting next month and will be on display at LG's MWC booth.
