- LG has launched three mid-range Q and K Series phones.
- All the phones: the Q60, K50 and K40 come with a dedicated Google Assistant button.
- The phones ship with DTS:X 3D Surround Sound technology.
A few days ahead of the MWC in Barcelona, LG has launched three new mid-range phones in its Q and K Series with AI-powered cameras. LG claims that these cameras have the ability to recognise objects and recommend an “ideal shooting mode for the best results”. LG says that all the three phones: the LG Q60, LG K50 and LG K40, are equipped with premium features, advanced technologies and are offered at prices that will not burn a hole in their pockets. The company, however, has not mentioned the price of any of the phones.
These phones come with DTS:X 3D Surround Sound technology that claim to devlive “high-end audio” through earphones. The technology simulates a 7.1-channel surround sound system to deliver “immersive” output when playing games, streaming movies or listening to music. The devices will be showcased at the LG booth at MWC from February 25-28, and the company has extended an invitation to experience the Q and K series smartphones during the tech show.
