LG K61, K51S, K41S Announced for the mid-range market

South Korean company, LG, maybe down but it’s definitely not out yet. In Seoul, the smartphone manufacturer announced its new K Series lineup for 2020. Dubbed as LG K61, K51S, and K41S — all three feature quad-rear cameras. However, the MIL-STD 810G design might be the standout feature here as mid-range phones typically come with plastic backing that imitates glass. It may look like it’s glass but it still feels cheap and plasticky in the hands. That said, LG is hoping to lure consumers with its premium design.

As expected, the K61 is the most packed among the three. It features four main cameras as headlined by a 48MP sensor with the rest being 8MP ultrawide, 5MP depth, and 2MP macro. The screen is a sharp 6.5″ 19.5″9 FHD+ which the company calls FullVision Display. Whether it’s AMOLED or LCD remains to be seen. One thing worth’s noting is that the two expect for K41S are sporting pinhole selfie cameras. Speaking of, there’s a 16MP selfie snapper for the K61. The battery is rated 4000mAh which supports USB-C charging, unfortunately, it wasn’t mentioned if there’s fast charging. The rest of the features are DTS:X 3D surround sound, Google Assistant Button, rear-capacitive fingerprint scanner, AI cameras, up to 128GB internal storage with 4GB RAM and an option to expand up to 2TB via microSD slot. The available colors are white, blue, and titanium.

The K51s features a narrower 6.5″ 20:9 HD+ FullVision Display with pretty much the same package as the bigger sibling. However, the RAM capacity is 3GB with the storage at 64GB. The main sensor for the quad-cameras on the back uses 32MP while the selfie camera uses a 13MP sensor. LG K51S comes in pink, blue, and titanium colors.

LG K41S is similar to K51S but with toned down cameras. The main sensor on the back uses a 13MP sensor while the front camera comes with an 8MP sensor. The colors, however, are titanium, black, and white.

All three come with unnamed octa-core chipset. The K41S is said to pack a 2.0GHz Octa-Core SoC while the K61 and K51S are listed with 2.3GHz Octa-Core SoC.

There’s no price yet regarding these devices, but LG shared that it will be available in the 2nd quarter in the Americas followed by key select markets in Europe and Asia.
