LG Electronics (LG) has introduced its new 2020 K series lineup including K61, K51S and K41S smartphones. The company informed that all these devices inherit advanced features first introduced in LG’s premium smartphones.

“The key value propositions of LG’s K series are advanced technologies and competitive pricing. We believe the K series will be the most competitive smartphones in its category offering features consumers really appreciate,” said Chang Ma, senior vice president of the product strategy group at LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

The company plans to start retailing 2020 K series in the Americas starting second quarter followed by key select markets in Europe and Asia. It is to be noted here that LG, on account of the Coronavirus outbreak, had withdrawn its participation from the Mobile World Congress 2020.

Quad-camera array

Each phone in the lineup delivers a rear quad-camera array consisting of a high-resolution main camera, wide angle lens, depth sensor and a macro lens, a first in the K series. The 48MP main lens in the top-of-the line K61 is the highest resolution camera ever offered in an LG smartphone while the 32MP camera in the K51S also surpasses the pixel count of any previous LG phone.

“The K61 delivers a super sharp 6.5-inch 19.5:9 FHD+ FullVision Display while the LG K51S features a slightly narrower 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ FullVision Display, both featuring an unobtrusive punch hole cutout for the camera while the LG K41S features a 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ FullVision Display. All three 2020 K series phones are designed with cinematically proportioned displays with thinner bezels than their predecessors to improve the immersive viewing experience,” read LG’s official statement.

It continued, “A robust 4,000mAh battery, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound for realistic 7.1-channel experience with headphones and MIL-STD-810G standard for durability all add to the attractiveness of the LG’s new K series for consumers eager to upgrade from their mediocre smartphone experience while staying within budget.”
