South Korean consumer electronics major, LG is reportedly planning to launch four new K-series in India later this month.
LG has commenced sending out invites to media outlets for the launch of range of smartphones in New Delhi. Though the company does not mention the moniker of the product, it is widely reported that mystery mobile series might be the 2017 series--K10, K8, K4 and K3,which were showcased at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017, Las Vegas, last month.
Interestingly, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union IT minister, along with Kim Ki Wan, managing director, LF Electronics, are prisiding over the product-launch event, hinting that the new phones will be made in India and also boast SoS (emergency) button, as Prasad had attended similar LG K series phone launch in April last year.

Whereas, the latter sports a smaller 4.5-inch FWVGA screen, 2MP front camera and a 2,100mAh battery.
