LG Announces new K series and Stylus 3 ahead of CES
LG has announced five new smartphones at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The four smartphones are part of the new K series, set to succeed the L series. The new K series of smartphones, contains four devices that share similarities, but that are designed for a range of different customers.
LG is calling the K series its new line of “mass-tier smartphones”, which we presume means for anyone. LG has imported some software from its high-end devices as well, including Gesture Shot and Gesture Interval Shot, for taking better selfies.
