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

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.

 

LG K series

 

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.

You also get front Flash to help you capture the perfect selfie, even in darker settings!

 

LG K10 and K7 will be present at CES 2016 and you will be able to find them at LG’s booth in Hall#8207 of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The event will be held through Jan 6-9.

The devices keep an LG vibe to them with the rear-facing buttons and the narrow bezels with on-screen navigation. LG Joy, the cheapest of the bunch, has buttons on the side and capacitive navigation buttons. Pricing and availability are not available yet, but they will probably be targeted at developing markets all around the world.
