LG K535 (K11 or K12?) shows up, Snapdragon 430 CPU and stylus in tow
Revealed in China, where it's been approved by the country's Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center, this sixth handset that we're talking about has the model number LG K535, and might be hitting the market as the LG K11, or maybe LG K12. One of these names would make sense, as the new phone is larger, and more powerful than the K10 (model number LG K410 / K430), the K8 (model number LG K350), and all other K series devices currently available to buy.
The LG K535 runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, and, unlike the rest of the K series handsets, it comes with a stylus pen that's tucked in the back (upper left corner). Sporting a generous 5.7-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, the phone further offers a 16 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front-facing camera with its own LED flash, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 2900 mAh battery. As for the processor that's powering the device, this is a 1.2 GHz octa-core Snapdragon 430 MSM8937 - one of Qualcomm's newest mid-range chipsets.
The LG K535 / K11 / K12 measures 155 x 79.6 x 7.4 mm, and weighs 146 grams. All in all, this can be considered an enhanced LG Stylus 2, which has about the same dimensions, but offers lower-end features (including a 5.7-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, and 1.5 GB of RAM).
We're not sure when this new LG smartphone will be released, but we're going to let you know when it happens (soon is probably a good guess).
