During CES 2017, LG today announced a refresh of their mid-range K-Series lineup and introduced the new Stylo 3 handset. Each device receives a bump in specs alongside a new feature or two, namely a fingerprint scanner.
Starting with the K-Series, LG’s new K10 now features a 5.3-inch 720p HD display, an octa-core 1.5GHz processor, a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera, a fingerprint sensor, Android Nougat, and a 2800mAh battery. Going down the line, the K8 comes with a 5-inch 720p HD display, a quad-core 1.4GHz processor, a 13MP/5MP camera array, Android Nougat, and a slightly smaller 2500mAh battery, the K4 features a 5-inch 854×480 FWVGA display, a quad-core 1.1GHz processor, two 5MP cameras, a 2500mAh battery, and a downgrade to Android Marshmallow, and the K3 comes in as the cheapest option with a 4.5-inch 854×480 display, a quad-core 1.1GHz processor, 5MP/2MP cameras, Android Marshmallow, and a smaller 2100mAh battery. For those wondering, both the K10 and K8 feature NFC, while the K4 and K3 are left without mobile payments.
Regarding the Stylo 3, this is where LG packs the most heat in this announcement as this mid-ranger features a 5.7-inch HD display, a 13MP/8MP camera combo, an octa-core 1.5GHz processor, Android Nougat, NFC, a fingerprint sensor, FM radio support, and a large 3200mAh battery. And obviously, hence the name, the LG Stylo 3 also includes a stylus and custom software for note taking and productivity. Who knows, this may be a good replacement for someone with a Galaxy Note 7.
As of now, there’s no word on when these new handsets will be released or how much they’ll cost, but LG does say it’ll mostly depend on US carriers and who wants to sell them. We’ll obviously let you know if any developments surface from this.
