LG Announces the X Series 'Specialist' Phones
LG today announced two new smartphones that mark the launch of the X Series handsets. LG says rather than offer all the best features in a single device the X Series mid-range phones will focus on providing one advanced feature. The X cam and X screen, the first two phones in the series, dedicate themselves to the camera and screen features, respectively. The handsets were designed with care. The X cam, for example, has curved glass and a profile as thin as 5.9mm, while the X screen has a "glass fiber" exterior.
- X cam: The cam is defined by two rear-mounted cameras, one at 13 megapixels and the other at 5 megapixels. LG says this setup allows for creative photo taking. The cam also has a 5-megapixel front camera. Other specs include a 5.2-inch full HD screen, 1.14 GHz octa-core processor with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, a 2,520mAh battery, and support for LTE networks.
- X screen:The screen's stand-out feature is its secondary, always-on screen. The phone has a small 1.76-inch screen above the main display similar to last year's V10 handset. This second screen can be used to display the time, incoming notifications, app shortcuts, and other info. The X screen also includes a 4.93-inch 720p HD screen, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, a 13-/5-megapixel rear/front camera configuration, 2,300mAh battery, and LTE.
