lg-k-series:-what-you-need-to-know-about-the-new-pixel-4a-rivals

LG has officially announced that it is expanding its K series with three new smartphones: the LG K62, LG K52 and LG K42.

With the K series, LG aims to deliver premium design and features at an affordable price point and the new handsets are set to be no exception.

All three new phones feature 6.6-inch HD+ FullVision displays with slim bezels. The K42 features a unique, colour-changing wave pattern on its rear, along with a UV coating to protect against marks and scratches. The K62 and K52 trade the wave pattern for a matte finish with its own unique, fingerprint-resistant optical pattern.

The K62, K52 and K42 are durable – designed to meet US military standards – and each model is packed with LG’s 3D Sound Engine for detailed, immersive audio.

The three phones pack quad-camera setups, with standard, ultra-wide, depth and macro sensors, along with a punch hole camera in the front. The K62 and the K52 feature 48MP main shooters, while the K42 includes a 13MP primary lens.

Other camera features include Flash Jump Cut which takes four photos to create fun stop-motion content, and AI CAM is capable of suggesting the best settings for any photo based on your subject. The camera also includes YouTube Live built in so you can create videos instantly.

As far as performance goes, the K series is packed with octa-core processors, along with a 4,000mAh battery for long periods of use.

LG K42

The K42 sits at the bottom – and, presumably, more affordable – end of the K series line.

The phone features a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, 1GB less RAM and a choice between 32 and 64GB ROM. The rear camera and front camera are also a bit less impressive at 13MP and 8MP, respectively.

The K42 features a unique, colour changing wave pattern and is available in Green, Gray, Red and Sky Blue.

LG K42 full specs:

  • Chipset: 2.0 GHz octa-core

  • Size: 165.0 x 76.7 x 8.4 mm
  • Weight: 182g
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and USB Type-C
  • Colors: Green, Gray, Red and Sky Blue

When will the new K series be released?

The K62, K52 and K42 will be available in Europe from next month, followed by Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

LG has yet to reveal a specific release date but, as the company made this announcement on September 23, we assume the new smartphones will hit shelves by the end of October.

How much will the new K series cost?

LG has not revealed how much the K62, K52 and K42 will cost. Considering the K series usually lands on the budget end of the smartphone spectrum, we’d expect these phones to land somewhere in the sub-£300 region.

We’ll have to wait until the release date to find out the exact prices.
