LG K92 5G debuts as affordable 5G smartphone with unusual design
LG has found success in the US with its budget smartphone series and the premium LG Velvet 5G. Now, the company is hoping to bridge the gap between those offerings with a new smartphone dubbed LG K92 5G.

The LG K92 5G has four cameras on the back, one up front


The device in question boasts a rather unusual design, to say the least. LG has chosen a two-tone finish for the rear panel with the bottom half being used for the LG and respective carrier logos.

The top half, on the other hand, is home to a fancy quadruple-camera system that consists of a 64-megapixel main camera complete with an f/1.78 aperture and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter with a 115-degree field-of-view.

The remaining two cameras are a bit less impressive. They boast 2-megapixel resolutions and offer depth and macro capabilities, allowing for better portrait and close-up shots. Last on the list of camera features are a massive LED flash, which is quite hard to miss, and a decent 16-megapixel selfie camera.

A massive display, 5G support as standard, and lots of storage


LG K92 5G buyers will be able to view all of their photos on a large 6.7-inch FullVision display. It offers a Full-HD+ resolution and makes use of slim bezels coupled with punch hole technology for the aforementioned selfie camera.

With a focus on videos and mobile gaming, LG has also included a stereo speaker setup and its custom 3D Sound Engine, in addition to 6GB of RAM and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 690 chipset.

The latter is also found inside the recently announced OnePlus Nord N10 5G and enables 5G network connectivity, making the K92 5G the most affordable 5G smartphone in LG’s lineup at the moment.

Rounding out the internal setup is 128GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD cards of up to 2TB. There is also a 4,000mAh battery and support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 4 via the USB-C port.

Other features include a side-mounted fingerprint scanner and Android 10 straight out of the box coupled with the usual LG custom UI on top.
