LG K10 launches this week (in Korea), price revealed

LG K10 launches this week (in Korea), price revealed
Announced last week at CES 2016, alongside the LG K7, the LG K10 will be available to buy starting this Thursday, January 14, in South Korea (LG's home country), for around $166. After that, the handset should be available in various other markets around the world.

The K10 has what LG is calling a "glossy pebble" design, featuring smooth, slightly curved edges, and a woven back pattern "for optimal grip." It's not a compact smartphone, but neither an extra-large one, measuring 146 x 74.8 x 8.8 mm, and sporting a 5.3-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels.

The LG K10 that's going to be sold in South Korea is powered by a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor (unknown maker), coming with LTE connectivity, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory - clearly, we're not talking about a high-end smartphone here. The K10 also has a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera, and a 2300 mAh battery. In other markets, the handset's features may be different.

Unfortunately, the K10 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, but we hope LG is getting ready to update it to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. To find out more about the new smartphone, check out our LG K10 hands-on from CES 2016 (video included).

LG made a special "quick view" protective case for the K10, which will be sold separately for a price that hasn't been announced. The accessory looks pretty interesting: it has a transparent edge that lets users see notifications and answer incoming calls without opening the case.

Would you buy the LG K10 if you only had under $200 to spend for a new handset?

not bad if sold for $200 make a higher end version of the k10 and it should do well in other markets one thing that i like about LG is that they change the design for each phone unlike Samsung

Samsung's design has improved a lot these days.. S6, S6 edge, Note 5 and Alpha series have their unique designs..

the only thing Samsung has improved is premium build quality rather than previous plastic build yes i agree that they have unique designs but they look all the same just like how every Audi or BMW looks the same

Well to be fair, all of LG's current phones all look very similar to each other

That's the point.. You can identify an Audi or BMW by its design and to know which model it is you need to look closer.. It's samsung's own signature design which we can identify easily in the crowd.. What about the Edge and it's uniqueness?

It's around $166 in Korea. I somehow forgot to mention that in the article, but it's there now. Thanks for noticing!
