South Korean consumer electronics giant LG has unveiled the company's new line of K series smartphones -- K7 and K10 -- ahead of CES (Consumer Electronics Show) 2016, to be held in Las Vegas.

"Our 2016 K Series is the latest example of LG applying it best mobile technology and premium design philosophy across numerous smartphone categories," said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

"Customers equate the LG name with great smartphone imaging technology and we are committed to delivering on that flattering expectation," he added.

Of the two, K10 is the top-end model. It features 5.3-inch HD screen with In-Cell display technology and runs on the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS backed by 2300 mAh battery.

The company has claimed that the K10 will be available in 3G and 4G variants, having different CPU. The former will house quad-core processor, whereas the latter will have octa-core chipset.

On the other hand, LG K7 sports a smaller 5.0-inch FWVGA screen and again depending on the network variant it will have either In-Cell (4G) or On-Cell (3G) display technology.
