LG announces K10 and K7 – new mid-range smartphones with premium-like features

Jan 5, 2016 | News

LG just announced two new budget-friendly devices, just a few hours before the official debut of this year’s CES in Las Vegas. The K series, a new line of smartphones coming from the South-Korean OEM, uses the advanced camera technology and the UX features from LG’s more expensive devices. The first two K smartphones, K10 and K7, will officially launch at CES in a few days.

Design-wise, these smartphones are the first to use a “glossy pebble design language with a contemporary stylish look” and a curved finish. LG is also using its 2.5D Arc Glass to further improve the buttonless style that made them famous. There are no buttons on the sides of the devices, of course, as all of the more resend LG smartphones have been button-free on the sides, with the power button and volume rockers sitting on the upper back side.
