LG intros mid-range K40, K50, and Q60 ahead of MWC

LG makes cutting-edge tech wallet-friendly in 2019

LG on Wednesday announced a trio of new phones ahead of next week’s Mobile World Congress. The threesome, the K40, K50, and Q60, are mid-range models that share a few common traits but have just enough different between them to merit separate models.

As LG puts it, these are consumer-friendly smartphones that feature great camera performance and have solid battery life. Moreover, they come with AI-powered functionality in the form of a dedicated Google Assistant button and AI CAM automatic scene detection.

Each of the phones has tall displays with 2:1 aspect ratios, fingerprint readers, microSD card slots (up to 2TB), and DTS:X 3D surround sound. It’s not clear which version(s) of Android these run but we assume/hope it’s Android 9 across the board.

The phone maker hasn’t revealed any pricing or carrier availability but we suspect we’ll get variations of some, if not all, of them in the US. From time to time we see mid-range LG models sold through top service providers and a few prepaid and/or MVNO brands.
