Ahead of the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week, LG has announced its new K8 2018 and K10 2018 series phones, which includes K8 2018, K10 2018, K10+ 2018 and K10 α 2018.
According to the company, these new K-series phones are aimed at closing the gap between mass-tier devices and flagship offerings. The company says that these devices will go on sale in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
It seems that the company is focusing on providing an improved camera setup with features such as high-speed autofocus and noise reduction for better low-light photography. The devices pack a new camera features called Flash Jump Shot that snaps a photo every three seconds, up to 20 photos and stitches them together into a GIF.
Further, both phones will have HD display with 2.5D curved glass design. The LG K8 2018 features a metallic design with metal U-frame, 5-inch On-Cell Touch IPS display, and sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with phase detection autofocus — same unit that is found in the flagship LG G6, along with an 8-megapixel front camera that supports Bokeh effect.
Under the hood, it is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor along with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM with 16GB (eMMC) storage. There’s a microSD card slot for expanding storage capacity up to 32GB. Running Android Nougat operating system, the phone is powered by a 2,500mAh battery.
On the other hand, the LG K10 2018 is the premium model of the two, featuring a 5.3-inch IPS HD display and a 1.5GHz octa-core processor. The phone will be available with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage — same as the LG K10 α 2018. The LG K10+ 2018 packs 3GB RAM with 32GB onboard storage. All devices have a microSD card slot for further expanding the storage capacity.
As of the camera department, all three models of K10 2018 series come with an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs on Android Nougat operating system and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
The LG K8 2018 and the LG K10 2018 series will be available in Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, and Terra Gold colors. The devices will be showcased at LG’s booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from 26th February until 1st March.
