On Tuesday, LG announced that its X Series smartphones are starting their global rollout this week.
LG unveiled the new smartphones back in February, and now the company is launching the first two X Series smartphones: the X screen and X cam. These two smartphones will be available starting in South Korea, according to LG, "followed by key markets", including Europe, Latin America, and Asia. The X cam features a 5.2-inch FHD display, a 1.14 GHz octa-core processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a 2,520 mAh battery, and LTE support. The X cam's biggest feature is its camera; it packs a dual back camera, pairing a 13-megapixel shooter with a 5-megapixel wide-angle lens one. The front-facing camera is also impressive, with an 8-megapixel sensor. The X screen has similar features to its sibling, but impresses users with improved displays. The X screen features a dual-screen display with a 4.93-inch, 720p main display and a secondary, always-on 1.76-inch, 520x80 pixel screen.
"What's appealing about the X screen and X cam is that each offers one great feature in a complete package that doesn't break the bank," said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company in a statement on the launch. "Starting with the X series, we're introducing the best in camera and display technology in a mass-tier device, something that has never been done before." LG did not specify any further pricing details on the X Series smartphones at this time.
