LG announced K50S with triple camera lens and massive screen

LG has just announced two new mid-range phones as part of its K-series, and each has its fair share of high-end features. They dubbed LG K50S and LG K40S.

It's the K50S, what's most interesting is the 6,5-inch 19.5:9 screen with HD+ resolution.

What makes this a real phablet is that the device also has a triple rear camera lens, consisting of a 13MP main lens, a 5MP super wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor.

The phone also has a 13MP front-facing camera, a hefty 4,000mAh, unnamed octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and - oddly enough - a mil STD-810G that's tough, meaning it should be tougher than most phones.

The LG K40S is similar, but a slight step down. It too has military-grade durability, along with an octa-core processor, 32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 13-megapixel front camera.

But 2GB or 3GB of RAM, a smaller 3500mAh battery, and a 6,1-inch screen is also smaller (though that too has HD+ resolution and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio).

In addition, the LG K40S also has one less rear camera, as it lacks the depth sensor from the LG K50S, but it still gets a 13-megapixel main and 5-megapixel wide-angle snapper.

The two phones both sport a dedicated button assistant, a fingerprint scanner on the back, and DTS:X with 3D surround sound, so they have all the features we tend to see in mid-range smartphones.

Communications devices launching in October in New Aurora Black and New Moroccan Blue hues.

Don't count on being able to buy them everywhere, although as long as they go to Europe, there's not a word about the US or Australia. We also don't know how much they cost, but they are supposedly 'good value'.

We may find out pricing soon though, as the two phones will be at IFA 2019 – the tech show runs from September 6th to 11th.
