LG is kicking things off a little early. A few days before the start of the company announced it will unveil two new phones at the conference., otherwise known as the world's biggest mobile industry trade show,
Known as the K8 and K10, these phones will be available in Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. They come in three colors (black, blue and gold) and will add to LG's lineup of affordable, midrange phones.
No pricing or availability date is yet known for the devices. But we do know that both phones run Android 7.1.2 Nougat and tout a handful of camera features, including improved noise-reduction for low-light pictures, a flashing timer for group photos and "Flash Jump Shot." This feature stitches up to 20 photos together and creates a shareable GIF.
The K10, which is the more advanced of the two phones, has a 5.3-inch display, an octacore processor and a 3,000mAh battery. The K10 will also come in three variants depending on the market. These have different amounts of memory (from 2 to 3GB), storage (16 to 32GB) and camera specs (either a 13- or 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a front-facing 8- or 5-megapixel camera).
Meanwhile, there is only one model of the 5-inch K8. It's equipped with a quadcore processor and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera. It also has a front-facing 5-megapixel camera and a 2,500mAh removable battery.
