LG intros next-generation K50S and K40S mid-range smartphones
While everyone is waiting for LG's next flagship(s), the V60 ThinQ and possibly the G8X ThinQ, the South Korean company unveiled two new mid-range handsets today – the K50s and K40s. These phones are supposed to offer “flagship features with friendlier prices,” according to LG.

Both phones will be showcased next month at IFA 2019 trade fair, but they won't hit the shelves until October. As far as availability goes, LG announced the K50S and K40S will be launched in Europe, Latin America and Asia in two colors – New Aurora Black and New Moroccan Blue.

Unlike many of its previous mid-range phones, the K50 and K40S are quite powerful. Both are equipped with 2GHz octa-core processors, big battery and display, as well as impressive cameras.

The K40S sports a large 6.1-inch FullVision HD+ display, either 2GB or 3GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, dual main camera (13MP+5MP), secondary 13-megapixel camera, and a 3,500 mAh battery.

The slightly more expensive LG K50S has a larger 6.5-inch FullVision HD+ display, 3GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, triple main camera (13MP+2MP+5MP), secondary 13-megapixel camera, and a huge 4,000 mAh battery.

LG K40S and 50S are powered by Android 9.0 Pie and feature rear-mounted fingerprint sensors along with Google Assistant button and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound support.

Last but not least, LG's phones should stand up to the rigors of daily use, as both are to meet the U.S. military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability.
