LG has reasons to celebrate several new launches this year. The crowd is eagerly waiting for the release of LG’s flagship model, LG G5, but there are other launches expected from the company. The LG Hungary website pointed out a new member in the list, the LG K8, which might launch during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) with the latest Marshmallow operating system onboard.
The other models in the K series, LG K7 and LG K10, were officially announced during Consumers Electronics Show (CES). The time has come to unveil the LG K8, a device falling in between the K7 and K10, which has plenty of impressive features.
GSM Arena takes into account the LG K8’s 5-inch IPS HD display screen, 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera and 2,125mAH battery. Of the other features, the noticeable ones include MT6735 chip, quad-core processor with 1.3GHz Cortex-A53 and Mali-T720MP1 GPU along with 1.5GB RAM. The device is based upon LTE Cat.4 connectivity.
The upcoming device is creating lots of buzz, but its exact availability date and pricing are not known yet. If reports by Android Central turn out true, the LG K8 will hit the European market soon.
According to a previous report, the South Korean company confirmed releases of two models from the X series, the X Cam and X Screen at the MWC. It is clear that LG is working hard to produce affordable smartphones with great features and performance to stay ahead in the competition. 9to5Mac notes that companies like OnePlus, Huawei, Oppo and Xiaomi are trying to strengthen their positions in the market with premium-looking, high-end devices at cheap prices. The question is will LG survive the competition?
Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company believes that, “At LG, we think there’s room for devices that do one thing very well and that consumers shouldn’t have to pay for features that they don’t want. At the end of the day, we’re committed to offering consumers more choices.”
