LG Announces Three New Mid-Range K-Series Phones With Quad-Cameras, USB C, and More

  • LG has taken the wraps off the K61, K51S, and the K41S with quad-cameras and 4,000 mAh batteries under the hood.
  • The phone will reportedly launch in the Americas first with other markets like Asia and Europe getting it eventually.
  • LG hasn’t disclosed pricing information for either smartphone.

Although LG hasn’t enjoyed massive success in the smartphone market of late, there’s no denying that its budget and mid-range smartphones have done surprisingly well in the extremely crowded market. On the other hand, the company also faces stiff competition from regional rival Samsung.

Well, LG has today announced a refresh of its K-Series mid-range smartphones with high-end specs like quad cameras, making them a more appealing option for prospective buyers in 2020.

The company has announced three phones, known as the K61, K51S, and the K41S. The LG K61 is the more powerful of the three phones announced by the company.

Here’s a look at the specs of the newly announced handsets.
