Before the Mobile World Congress last month, LG unveiled new smartphones that were going to be part of the X Series, and called them LG X Screen and LG X Cam. Both are mid-range devices, and they were shown at the MWC to let people have a first look at the new phones. During the announcement, LG mentioned that the devices would be released sometime in March. The Korean manufacturer also announced that both of the phones would be getting a global release beginning on March, 21st.
Since South Korea is LG’s base of operations, both X Cam and X Screen will be released there first before going to the global markets. During their initial announcement, it was said that beside South Korea the devices will be released in other key markets, such as Asia, Europe, and Latin America. There was no mention with regard to the U.S. launch for either of the devices, which left customers to question if LG would release them to the U.S. Market at all, and if so, when.
Both X Screen and X Cam provide users with various different niche features of their own. For instance, LG X Cam will give users access to much better camera features, like the pop-out picture when it comes to creating picture in frame effects, as well as an animated photo feature that is only going to come with X Cam, which lets users create special images by combining still photos and videos for a one-of-a-kind picture.
LG X Screen has the same second screen with the always-on display that LG pushed out last year. The purpose is to create a new way for users to quickly glance at important information like notifications, as well as date and time. The second screen is only 1.76 inches with a 520 x 80 resolution, while the main display is 4.93 inches with an HD resolution.
Both phones will be released with the Android 6.0 Marshmallow. LG hasn’t provided details about pricing or specific launch dates yet for any of the regions, since each will have its own launch information and pricing.
