The new phones, according to a new report from VentureBeat, won’t be high-end flagship devices like the G5 or V20, but rather new models in LG’s lower-end X, K and Stylus families. A whopping four new K phones are rumored to be revealed soon. The story says these new 2017 models will have the following features:
- K3 – 4.5-inch, 5MP rear and 2MP front-facing cameras, 2100mAh battery
- K4 – 4.7-inch, 8MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, 2500mAh battery
- K8 – 5.0-inch HD display, 13MP rear and 5MP front-facing cameras, 2500mAh battery
- K10 – 5.3-inch HD display, 2.5D glass on front and back, 5MP wide-angle, front-facing camera, fingerprint reader
The report says that all the new LG K 2017 phones will go on sale sometime in mid-January.
In addition, the company may reveal a new phone called the LG X calibur as part of its CES plans. It will be a new rugged phone with an IP68 water and dust resistance rating, as well as a 4100mAh battery. It is supposed to be released in March.
Another new LG phone is supposed to make its debut at CES – the LG Stylus 3. The report says this new phone will be called the Stylo 3 plus in the US, and will have a digital pen included for its 5.7-inch display. The report also says it will have 32GB of on-board storage, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, a 3200mAh battery and a fingerprint reader. This phone is supposed to be launched in February.
Finally, the report adds that LG will wait until the Mobile World Congress trade show in late February to officially reveal the X power 2 phone. It is supposed to have a 5.5-inch display, a 13MP rear camera, a 5MP wide-angle front camera and a 4500mAh battery. The report says it will launch in April. VentureBeat did not mention prices for any of LG’s new phones.
