LG is taking on Samsung with new K-series smartphones

The LG K51S is backed by a 64GB of internal storage, while the LG K41S features 32GB of internal storage.

Just like the K61S, you have MIL-STD 810G compliance, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, a Google Assistant Button, a USB-C port, an audio jack, DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. The LG K61 is the most premium of the lot, as it offers a 48-megapixel main camera at the back, and a 16-megapixel front camera for selfies and video shooting. As mentioned earlier, the LG K61 is also MIL-STD 810G compliant. LG did not say what version of Android the phones will be running, so it won't be 10 - hopefully it's Android 9 Pie with an outside chance of an update somewhere down the line. If LG plans to introduce these new mid-range smartphones in Q2 in the Americas, we'll probably be able to tell you about the prices next month.

The LG K61 packs a 4000mAh battery that charges via a USB Type-C port. LG says "capturing the magic of the moment has never been so easy or fun" as it will be with these three handsets, which suggests a bunch of effects and camera tricks will be available in the camera software. There is also a microSD card slot available for expansion of storage (up to 2TB). On the camera front, it has four cameras on the back comprised of a 48MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra-wide angle, 2MP Macro lens, and 5MP depth sensor. The 6.5-inch display has a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and an FHD+ resolution. It is powered by the same unnamed octa-core processor as the K61 but is less impressive in the camera department. It will be made available in Titanium, Pink and Blue colour options. The memory can be further expanded up to 2TB via microSD card.

LG K51S

And finally, the LG K41S appears to be an entry-level model, packing a 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ display, 3GB RAM and 32GB‌ storage, 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, 13MP standard, 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP Macro and 2MP depth cameras, 8MP front shooter and a 4,000 mAh battery. On the back, it houses a 32MP primary, 5MP‌ ultra-wide angle sensor, 2MP‌ Macro, and 2MP‌ depth sensor. Up front, the phone features a 13-megapixel selfie shooter. Below the rear cameras is a fingerprint scanner.

The battery on all three phones is 4,000mAh, and thanks to the relatively low screen resolutions as well as this size, the handsets will likely last two days before you need to power them up. The LG K51S measures 165.2 x 76.7 x 8.2mm, while the LG K41S measures 165.7 x 76.4 x 8.2mm.
