LG has announced three low to mid-range smartphones that will be launched at Mobile World Congress this weekend alongside the LG G8 and possible V50 ThinQ 5G handset. 

These phones do have the hallmarks of cheaper devices with HD+ resolution for example, but they don’t skimp on physical screen size with a 6.26-inch display for the LG Q60 and LG K50 and 5.7-inch for the LG K40.

While the K40 is a traditional-looking device with a single camera, the other phones up the ante with dual or triple-cameras and a notched design to accommodate that larger front screen.

The LG Q60 has a 16 megapixel front camera and three rear cameras: 16MP with Phase Detection Auto Focus (PDAF), a super-wide angle 5 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel unit with Depth Sensor for portrait shots.

Both the LG Q60 and LG K50 have a 3,500mAh battery while the smaller LG K40 plumps for 3,000mAh.

All the phones have a dedicated Google Assistant button, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound, impact and shock protection and are based around an undefined 2Ghz octacore chipset – details around this may become clearer during the coming days.  

Check out the specs of the three handsets here - at least the ones we know so far.
