LG K4 joins the K10 and K7 in LG's latest series of cheap smartphones
Earlier this month, when LG officially announced its brand new K series smartphones, it presented two devices: the K10 and the K7. Today, the company unveiled a third member of the series, namely the LG K4.

While the K4 hasn't been properly announced, it shows up in a K10 and K7 promo video that LG posted on YouTube. At the moment, there's no word on what features the K4 is offering, but the handset is obviously smaller than both the K10 and K7 (which sport displays measuring 5.3 inches and 5.0 inches, respectively). We're pretty sure that the K4 is an entry-level smartphone that's going to be sold at a low price. For the record, the LG K10, which is the new series' most advanced handset, costs around $166 in Korea.

The K10 and K7 promo video (embedded below) makes it clear that the K series is aimed at young users, allowing them to take selfies and casual photos with ease.

Both the LG K10 and LG K7 will be released in various markets around the world (in the US, the latter will be called LG Tribute 5), and we assume that the K4 is also going to be widely available.

The do often fill in some of the "gaps", so to speak, that big brother Sammy leaves out or doesn't think of yet, though. I think that's pretty great.

Last year, LG's full focus was on getting unhappy Samsung users. ie their marketing strategy was to make their phones sell because there are unhappy (coz of lack of microsd, small battery etc..in S/Note series) Samsung customers. Rather they should make phones which will sell irrespective of how good or bad is the Samsung flagships. G4 bombed because of this regressive approach.

The G4 was a miss, but I think they got a nice thing going with the V10. Coming from a G3, I can say the V10 is an improvement in every way and I am very happy with it. I'm eager to see if they progress further with the G5 and the V10's successor.
