LG is one of the largest tech companies in the world. This Korea-based company had introduced a number of smartphones in the last year or so, including a couple of ‘X’ series devices. Even though LG’s sales don’t seem to be going as planned, the company is hoping things will pick up soon, and following the announcement of the X Power, X Mach, X Style and X Max handsets last month, the company has decided to introduce two new smartphones, read on.
LG has announced the LG X5 and X Skin smartphones in its homeland. We’re looking at two low to mid-range smartphones here, and both of them are fueled by Android 6.0 Marshmallow, while LG’s skin is pre-installed on top of Google’s operating system, of course. The LG X5 features a 5.5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage. The device is fueled by an unnamed quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, and a 2,800mAh battery is also included here. The 13-megapixel camera is placed on the back of this phone, and a 5-megapixel unit is available on the phone’s front side. There are two SIM card slots available inside of this phone, and 4G LTE connectivity is also included. The LG X5 measures 151.6 x 76.9 x 7.2mm, while it weighs 133 grams.
The LG X Skin, on the other hand, ships with a 5-inch 720p (1280 x 720) panel, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of native storage (expandable up to 32GB via a microSD card). This device is also fueled by a quad-core processor running at 1.3GHz, and a 2,100mAh battery is also included here. On the back of this phone you’ll find an 8-megapixel snapper, while a 5-megapixel unit is available up front. This is also a dual SIM device, and it also offers 4G LTE connectivity. The phone measures 144.8 x 71.4 x 6.9mm, and it weighs 122 grams. The LG X5 comes in White and Indigo Black color variants, and costs 200,000 won ($173) in South Korea. The LG X Skin, on the other hand, comes in Titanium and Gold colors, and it is priced at 231,000 won ($200) in Korea. The company still did not say whether these two phones will be available outside of Korea at some point, but we'll let you know once they do release more info.
