LG to Debut “SPECIALIST” X Series Smartphones at MWC 2016

Lg X Series

LG’s going all out in Barcelona.

Together with the G5 (that was leaked in Dubai), and the Stylus 2, LG has announced that it will launch a ‘new series of smartphones’ to the Mobile World Congress.

The first two models in the X series — X cam and X screen — will debut at MWC in Barcelona on February 22.

The X cam and X screen are designed for customers who do not want or need all the bells and whistles that come with today’s high-end phones but still desire a great camera or advanced display.

The X cam sports dual cameras on the rear and delivers one of the most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone. Thanks to LG’s seamless 3D Bending Glass, the X cam features an elegant curved finish on the front and with a profile of only 5.2mm, the device is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand. The device weighs a mere 118gm.

The other model, the X screen, is equipped with an “Always-on” Second Screen which until now has only been available on LG’s premium V10. The Second Screen sits above the main 4.93-inch HD In-cell Touch display and makes multi-tasking a cinch on the X screen. With the 1.76-inch Second Screen, users can easily access frequently used apps, answer calls without interrupting the current activity or just play music. The Second Screen also lets users check time, date, battery status and other notifications without ever having to turn on the phone.

“Everyone has a favorite smartphone feature. At LG, we think there’s room for devices that do one thing very well and that customers shouldn’t have to pay for features that they don’t want. At the end of the day, we’re committed to offering consumers more choices.”
– Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

LG’s X series will debut in key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month. We will update this post with UAE pricing as soon as it’s announced.
