While all eyes are on the LG G5, the company is also set to unveil a new smartphone series at MWC later this month. Called the ‘X Series’, LG will unveil two new smartphones at the event, called the X Cam and the X Screen. LG says that the USP of the X Series of smartphones is ‘one exceptional feature at a price that rivals mid-range smartphones’.
This exceptional feature could be a unique camera or a ‘great display experience’. With that in mind, the X Cam may come with a dual-camera setup, while the X Screen is expected to feature a V10-like always-on secondary display.
LG X Cam specifications and features: The smartphone flaunts a 5.2-inch full HD (1920×1080 pixels) display, and is powered by an 1.14GHz octa-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. It also features a 16GB internal storage, 2,520mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
The talking point is the pair of 13-megapixel and 5-megapixel cameras at the back. The second camera could be a depth sensor, and LG is calling this setup as the “most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone.” Up front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The device boasts a curved finish on the front, with a thickness of only 5.2mm, and weighs at 118 grams only.
LG X Screen specifications and features: The X Screen boasts a LG V10-like always on secondary display. The primary display is a 4.93-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) screen, while the secondary is a 1.76-inch LCD display at 520×80 pixels resolution.
Besides the display, the smartphone also features a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel selfie camera. It also features a 2,300mAh battery and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Both these devices will be unveiled along with the flagship LG G5 smartphone at MWC later this month. From what we have come across so far, the upcoming smartphone will feature a 5.6-inch QHD (2560×1440 pixels) Always on display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and a 2,800mAh battery. The smartphone could also boast a unique modular design that will make the battery removable.
According to reports, LG’s flagship G5 is most likely to feature a dual-camera setup at the back alongside a laser autofocus and dual-LED flash, while up front there is set to be an 8-megapixel snapper. It is also likely to feature a fingerprint scanner, 4G LTE support, and run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow wrapped under LG’s custom UI.
