LG unveils K series handsets at CES 2016


The mid-range K series includes the K7 and more premium K10 handsets

LG unveiled its new K Series line of mid ranged smartphones at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (January 4).

The new range comprises of two handsets called the K10 (pictured) and the K7. Both handsets come with a curved button-less screen. K10 is the more premium handset of the pair.

At the back is a cover with a woven pattern which LG claims has been designed to give users better grip.

Both handsets include LG’s Gesture Shot feature. This allows users to take photographs using the front camera by opening and closing their hand in front of the camera. Doing this gesture twice will command the camera to take four consecutive shots.

Each handset also runs on Google’s Android Lollipop operating system.

A 13MP rear camera and 8MP front camera have been included on the more premium K10. It also has a 5.3-inch HD screen, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of external storage and a 2,300mAh battery. Colours available include white, indigo and gold.

The K7 comes with a 5-inch display, a 1.1GHz Quad-Core processor, an 8MP camera, a front 5MP camera, 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory. It also comes with a 2,125mAh battery and is available in white, black or gold colours.

LG has not yet confirmed UK availability or pricing.
