LG K Series with
A press release disseminated today reveals that LG has officially announced two phones from its new K Series. The LG K10 and LG K7 will be displayed during CES, which kicks off officially on January 6th. The new line replaces the LG L Series, and features the manufacturer's new glossy pebble design. The two smartphones also include LG's new 2.5D arc glass.

LG says that the phone is focused on creating and viewing multimedia content. Some versions of the K10, for example, come with a 13MP rear camera and 8MP front-facing camera. LG calls the cameras on the handsets the "most advanced camera on a smartphone in this category." Several LG features are included with the phones such as Gesture Shot and Gesture Shot Interval. The former snaps a picture when you put an open hand in front of the screen and make a fist. Closing the hand twice snaps four quick shots using the Gesture Shot Interval feature. And both phones use a woven pattern on the back to keep the unit from slipping out of the user's hand.

The LG K10 offers a 5.3-inch In-cell display with a 720 x 1280 HD resolution. The LTE version of the phone is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz CPU. The 3G model features a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU. There will be three variants with 2GB of RAM, 1.5GB of RAM and 1GB of RAM. The handsets are available with 16GB or 8GB of ROM. The camera combos available with the LTE model are 13MP/8MP and 13MP/5MP. The 3G model carries an 8MP rear-facing camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. A 2300mAh battery keeps the lights on, and the phone will be offered in White, Indigo and Gold. It measures 8.8mm thick.

The LG K7 is equipped with a 5-inch 480 x 854 resolution display. The LTE variant of the phone comes with a quad-core 1.1GHz CPU while the 3G model is driven by a quad-core 1.3GHz CPU. The phone can be bought carrying 1.5GB of RAM inside with 16GB of ROM, or 1GB of RAM with 8GB of ROM. The LG K7 offers an 8MP or 5MP rear-facing camera, and a 5MP front-facing snapper. A 2125mAh battery keeps the generator humming, and the color options are Titan (LTE), and White, Black and Gold (3G). Lastly, the LTE model of the K7 is 8.9mm thick while the 3G variant is 9.05mm thick.

The phones will be on display at CES, where we hope to find out the pricing and launch schedule for both the LG K10 and LG K7.

The K7 doesn't seem too appealing in my opinion. A 480 x 854 resolution is pretty ridiculous, unless it costs about $100.

Oh look. An Apple boi showed up.

Don't kid yourself. The iPhone 6s is worse than your most average Android phone.

exactly,
most point&shoot and DSLR's camera didnt even have 720p screen..
if their camera can compete with last year flagship, then those spec still worth it (for less than $250 of course)

This is basically a G2 design, specs from that era, and way too many variations within those mediocre specs.

I'm hoping for 5" version of the V10. Preferrably with an SD820 and wireless charging. No 2nd screen necessary, thanks.

i'm sure they'll release midranger 5" with V10 design o.O

My god LG make some dumb decisions.

The K7 should 100% have a 720 screen.

I'm a fan of LG, but any phone with less than 2GB of RAM isn't welcome.

These are phones designed for the prepaid market and countries that are selling value over specs due to cost.

A lot of people give LG and Samsung he!! for making low end phones. I think it great they do and they make money on them. There's a lot of people who are buying them because they can't spend $400 + in better or flagship phones. Mostly icrap isheep fanboys. But apple would do good if they made low end phones too since so many people buy apple for the name and the little fruit on the back. OH WAIT they do make low end phones lol they just charge high price lol (kidding) they are midrange or very slightly above.
