LG has announced its new K series smartphones – K10 and K7 – equipped with improved camera technology and UX features. The new smartphones that succeed the L series lineup, will make their international debut at the CES convention in Las Vegas.
What is new in the K series devices when compared to their successor is the glossy pebble design, which the company claims is the first of its kind, featuring new 2.5D Arc Glass for a smooth and seamless build. The back of the phone features an intricate woven pattern offering a strong grip.
Apart from these, both the phones feature Gesture Shot and Gesture Interval Shot for taking selfies without much hassle. While Gesture Shot allows taking photos by just raising a hand in front of the lens and then clenching it into a fist, the Gesture Interval Shot produces four consecutive photos. Besides, both come with Flash for Selfie feature for capturing images in low light conditions.
The K10 sports a 5.3in screen and the K7 a 5in screen. The LTE model is powered by a quad-core (clocked at 1.2GHz or 1.3GHz) or octa-core processor running at 1.14GHz. The 3G model uses a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The K7, in contrast, is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core for the LTE variant, whereas the 3G model packs a 1.3GHz quad-core processor.
The LTE model of K10 packs a 13 megapixel rear camera as opposed to the eight megapixel unit fixed in the 3G model. Both the variants use either eight or five megapixel front cameras. The K7, on the other hand, has an eight or five megapixel rear snapper. A 2,300mAh battery is the power house for the K10, whereas the K7 is powered with a 2,125mAh battery. Both run Android Lollipop version 5.1 and will be available in 16GB and 8GB storage variants, without microSD card support for additional storage.
