LG has just announced its 2017 smartphone lineup ahead of CES 2017, which takes place in Las Vegas on the 5th January. The new LG 2017 smartphones includes the LG Stylus 3 and four mass-tier 2017 K Series phones.
The LG K Series is aimed at bringing select features and technologies from LG’s premium flagship smartphones, to the mid-tier market. These technologies includes the rear fingerprint scanner and 120-degrees wide angle front camera.

The K Series is expansive as LG believes that consumers are specifically looking for different things. However, the whole K Series range is designed to have a premium look and feel.
The LG Stylus 3 will supersede the LG Stylus 2 and offer an improved writing experience, through a 1.8mm diameter fibre-tip stylus. This will provide the same feel and feedback as a pen writing on a screen and works with a number of pre-loaded apps.
Pen Pop 2.0 memos can be set to be shown whenever the stylus moves. Pen Keeper emits a warning if the stylus and phone are parted, while the Screen-off Memo makes it quick and easy to create memos on the fly.
