LG on MWC 2018 will show LG K10 (2018) and LG K8 (2018). The first of them will have a camera known from LG G6. Has LG finally learned to make middle class?
LG is a producer who, as almost no other one, is successful on the average market. The company can easily make great flagships, as exemplified by LG V30 tested on LGV30, but budgetists are … well, very bad. This is expected to change at MWC 2018 in Barcelona. If LG does not want to show us a new flagship, then we have to settle for something a bit weaker. Meet LG K10 (2018) and LG K8 (2018) .LG K10 is a phenomenon that has been occupying high sales positions in operator offers for two generations. I'm sure every one of you knows someone who has one. The model from 2018 has a specification of "getting closer" to the premium shelf. How is LG planning to do it? There is no surprise here, and the cameras are supposed to be the highlight of the program. Already last year's K10 offered a wide angle to selfies, so it will be in the successor, which at the same time will make its debut in three different variants : LG K10, LG K10 Alpha and LG K10 Plus. They will vary in the quality of selfie photo modules, but all will offer a reduction in resolution when switching to a wide angle. The top model will also be the best in terms of taken photographs. It has to be equipped with the same 13-megapixel sensor, which we know from LG G6 – that is, one that was designed from the beginning to medium-half-eaters. As for the specification, we're dealing with a typical cheaper middleware – 3 GB RAM and 32 GB memory for user files in the Plus version and 2 GB RAM and 16 GB in the others. So far, we do not know the exact model of the processor, but it is supposed to be an eight-core unit clocked at 1.5 GHz. The battery will have 3000 mAh , and on the backs will be a fingerprint reader. A small disappointment is the screen with HD resolution – with a 5.3-inch diagonal there is no reason to expect a good sharpness of the displayed image. The last cheap model that LG will show at MWC is LG K8 2018 . This is a much weaker device that will debut with a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM and 16 GB for files. The screen is to have 5 inches and the resolution is also HD. The battery will also be smaller, the capacity in 2018 will amount to 2500 mAh. It is comforting that even he has a fingerprint reader . For now, we do not know anything about the prices of new LG smartphones from the K series, but certainly not all will go to Poland. I think that the average variant of LG K10 (2018) will make its debut here. It will have a difficult task, and an inappropriate quote will kill a pretty cool device. In the context of the high popularity of cheap Xiaomi and Huawei, I do not bode for their success. So how is LG finally able to average?
