South Korean consumer electronics major LG unveiled a new X series smartphone dubbed as X Cam and X Screen on Monday, Feb. 15.

As the name suggests LG X Cam's main USP is its camera, whereas LG X Screen's marquee feature is its display.

LG X Cam boasts dual-cameras with 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.

On the other hand, LG X Screen flaunts a dual-display panel having 4.93-inch HD screen and a dedicated 1.76-inch ticker-display so that the 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 features 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 13MP camera on the back, 8MP snapper, a 2300mAh battery.

"Everyone has a favourite smartphone feature. At LG, we think there's room for devices that do one thing very well and that customers shouldn't have to pay for features that they don't want. At the end of the day, we're committed to offering consumers more choices," Juno Cho, president (& CEO), LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said in press statement.

The company has confirmed that the new LG X cam and X screen will be showcased at the upcoming Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2016 (Feb. 22 - Feb. 25) and will hit stores in Asia, Europe and Latin American markets next month.
