A new budget smartphone is now available for the Boost Mobile customers in the US. The company launched the affordable LG K51 smartphone for just $89.99. It looks very much similar to the LG K41S launched in February this year. Unlike the LG K51, the K41S additionally features a macro sensor on the rear.
Triple Camera Smartphone Under $100
On the front, the LG K51 sports a 6.5-inch HD+ FullVision display with 20:9 aspect ratio. Unlike the high-end smartphones, the bezels around the display are slightly thicker. It comes with a 2GHz MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core processor debuted in 2018. This chipset can handle all the basics tasks and even games which are less graphic demanding. The device includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
There is also a MicroSD card slot for expanding storage up to 2TB. The 4000mAh battery on device is rated to give up to 23 hours of talk time. In the photography department, the LG K51 should fare well with the customers. It got triple camera setup on the rear featuring a 13MP primary camera, a 5MP super wide camera, and a 2MP bokeh camera. While there is no information about the front camera, we expect it to be an 8MP sensor.
Misses out the latest Android 10
Overall, it's good to see brands not compromising on the key hardware of the device like display and cameras. While we can't complain much about the hardware of the LG K51, it's not the same case with the software. The device comes with older Android 9 Pie out of the box. Also, there is no ETA mentioned for the latest Android 10 update. The LG K51 also include a fingerprint scanner on the rear and a dedicated Google Assistant button on the left edge.
The device is also MIL-STD 810G certified for its durability. Coming to the build quality, it sports polycarbonate body with a glossy finish. Like most budget smartphones today, the LG K51 also offers a great deal of value. The ongoing promotion on the company's website brings down the price even lower by offering an additional discount for a limited time.
If a user switches to Boost Mobile, they can get the latest LG smartphone for just $29.99 and that too without any contracts. However, they need to apply the code 'CINCO2020' during checkout. For those who are on a low budget, the above deal must make the affordable LG K51 smartphone a preferable choice.
