If you are in South Korea, both the devices from LG's newly unveiled K series will be available for purchase from January 14. The K series was announced prior to CES 2016 and unveiled at the event itself. The new line was due as the older L series was already three generations old and the models in the series were starting to look and sound a bit too much like each other!
The idea behind the introduction of the K series is to bring budget devices to consumers without sacrificing on certain features usually restricted to premium models only. However, we are of the opinion that those "premium" features are mostly cosmetic. It seems that both the devices will ship with Android Lollipop and one can only hope that a Marshmallow upgrade is forthcoming.
The K7 sports a 5-inch display with a resolution of 854x480 powered by a 1.1 GHz/1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 1GB/1.5GB RAM and a 2125 mAh battery. An 8/5 megapixel sensor will sit on the back while the front camera will probably sport a 5 megapixel sensor on all variants. Storage options are either 8GB or 16GB.
The K10 is bigger with a 5.3-inch 720p display and has better specs under the hood. As is the case with the K7, the specs will vary quite a bit depending on the location as well as LTE capabilities. From what we know so far, you can expect the LTE variant of the K10 to come with 1.14GHz/1.2GHz/1.3GHz quad-core processors. The 3G version however, will only be powered by a 1.3 GHz CPU.
The LG K10 will have a 13mp/8mp camera on its back with the smaller sensor being bundled with the 3G version. The same trend is seen with the front facing 8mp/5mp selfie cam. It will be helped in its multitasking ventures by 1GB/1.5GB/2GB RAM, depending on the location where it is sold. The K10 will be available in 8GB/16GB storage options while the 2300 mAh battery will remain the same for all variants.
