LG Electronics is drawing a lot of attention with new releases from its K series. Since the LG K4, K7 and K10 were recently released, LG plans to expand its market with the K5 and K8, which will be launching this week. The budget smartphones are expected to work wonders for consumers looking for great specs at reasonable prices.
According to LG, the K5 and K8 will target specific markets in the first week of release. The LG K5 will initially roll out to consumers in Europe, Latin America and Common Wealth of Independent States (CIS). It should, however, be noted that the K5 will be called LG Q6 in Mexico.
People in Africa, Asia, Latin America, CIS and the Middle East will be the first to have access to the LG K8 handsets. Pricing details of both phones will be available once they are locally launched in the key markets.
