Consumer electronics major LG officially revealed the release details of mid-range smartphones X screen and X cam Tuesday, March 22.
For the uninitiated, LG first showcased X Screen and X Cam at Mobile World Congress 2016, Barcelona, last month. Now, the devices will hit stores first in the company's home market South Korea by the end of this week and soon be released in Europe, Latin America and Asia.
"What's appealing about the X screen and X cam is that each offers one great feature in a complete package that doesn't break the bank," Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in a statement.
"Starting with the X series, we're introducing the best in camera and display technology in a mass-tier device, something that has never been done before," Cho added.
LG X cam boasts dual cameras; 13MP primary snapper and a 5MP secondary camera to assist in capturing finer details of the scene. It also houses an 8MP camera on the front, enough to get a decent selfie.
Other stipulated features include 5.2-inch full HD display, Android Marshmallow OS, 1.14GHz Octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB inbuilt memory and a 2520mAh battery.
LG X Screen, on the other hand, flaunts a dual-display panel having 4.93-inch HD screen and a dedicated 1.76-inch ticker display so that users can easily access frequently-used apps, answer calls without interrupting the current activity or just play music, check time, date, battery status and other notifications.
It also comes packed with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, a 13MP camera on the back, an 8MP snapper, a 2300mAh battery.
The company is expected to reveal the official prices of LG X cam and X screen during the local launches. Watch this space for more updates.
