LG officially unveiled its new LG K series at CES 2016, which kicked off in Las Vegas last week. The new series consists of the LG K7 and the LG K10. Although the two made their official debut, pricing was yet to be determined, until now. Well, pricing for the LG K10 at least.
LG K10 now for sale in South Korea
LG (in Korean) recently announced that the LG K10 is now being sold in South Korea for the equivalent of £115. Other markets (including the UK) should get the LG K10 soon.
Both the LG K7 and the LG K10 come with what LG calls a “glossy pebble” design. The two sport smooth, slightly curved edges, and a back with a woven pattern “for optimal grip.” As far as dimensions go, the mid-sized LG K10 measures 146 x 74.8 x 8.8 mm.
The LG K10 sold in South Korea features a 5.3-inch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels (HD). In the photography department, the device features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for snapping selfies and video chat. On board is 16 GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. Under the hood is a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor (chip-maker yet to be determined) that comes with support for 4G LTE connectivity, coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM. To keep the lights on, the device features a 2,300 mAh battery. Based on these specs, the LG K10 is not a high-end device. Note that the LG K10’s specs varies depending on the market.
Since LG has just unveiled the new LG K10 is new, you may be expecting the device to run Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) out of the box. Sadly, it comes with Android 5.1 (Lollipop) pre-installed. We’re hoping the device gets updated to the latest version of Android in the coming months.
LG has also announced a new “quick view” protective case, which is specifically designed for the LG K10. The new case features a transparent edge that allows users to see notifications and answer calls without having to open the case. The accessory will be sold separately. Pricing is yet to be determined.
