LG affordable Nougat phones, new LG Stylus 3 headed for CES 2017

LG unveils a host of mid-range phones ahead of CES 2017

Like many other top smartphone manufacturers LG is coming to CES 2017 to show off a few new products. Getting a little excited? Don’t be. It turns out the leaks we’ve been seeing recently are all true and LG will unveil a bunch of mid-range products in Las Vegas.

So nothing too exciting. Surely we do love a decently specced phone that sells at an affordable price, but as we argued before – Chinese smartphone makers offer plenty in this segment. We were honestly expecting something more interesting from LG.

Anyway, LG says the mid-range segment is heating up and that’s why the company has prepared three new handsets from the K lineup designed to cater to the different needs of customers.

The first one is the K10 (which T-Mobile will sell as the K20 Plus) which is set to make a debut with a fingerprint scanner on board, metallic U-frame, 7.9mm body and a 2.5D Arc Glass design. Here’s the rest of the specs:

LG K10

  • 5.3-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution
  • Octa-core MediaTek MT6750 chipset clocked at 1.5GHz
  • 2GB of RAM

  • 13MP/5MP camera combo
  • 2,800 mAh battery
  • Android 7.0 Nougat
  • Black/Titan/Gold

As you can see the K10 offers nothing out of the ordinary. Its main selling point might be it’s one of the first affordable Nougat devices to make it out into the world. But LG will also unveil the K8, K4 and K3. Here’s what to expect.

There you have it, that’s what you can expect from LG at CES 2017. Nothing mind-blowing, but if you crave an affordable device, LG’s new set of phones might appeal to you. The company hasn’t shared prices with us just yet, so we can only speculate. For example, at lunch earlier this year the LG Stylus 2 was priced at around $220 so this year’s Stylus might feature a similar price-tag.
