LG has officially unveiled an entire new smartphone series this week, offering up two devices that will be at CES, which kicks off tomorrow.
The K Series is built with a premium design in mind, whilst using slightly less powerful specs to make the handsets more affordable. They’re supposedly designed with younger users in mind, but both look very professional and modern as well.
The larger and more powerful phone of the pair, the LG K10 boasts a 5.3” 720p HD display and is available in three colours; white, indigo and gold.
There are a raft of different versions of the K10 which will be on offer, all boasting the same display, colour options and 2,300mAh battery. Depending on which market you happen to be based in, and whether you’re after a 4G or 3G model, you’ll have plenty of choices to make.

There’s one octa-core processor model of the K10, whilst there are also two quad-core versions that rock 4G compatibility, if you’re interested in 3G then you’re stuck with a quad-core effort. RAM varies from 1GB all the way up to 2GB, whilst internal storage is available in 8GB or 16GB flavours.
4G versions of the K10 come with a 13mp rear camera, whilst the 3G offering boasts just 8 megapixels. Meanwhile, the front snapper is boasting 8mp or 5mp depending on which market you’re in.
The second K series smartphone is a bit more affordable, albeit a bit weaker on the specs front as well.
Like the K10, there are numerous variations for the LG handset depending on where you’re based and whether you opt for 4G or 3G connectivity. However, all versions of the K7 do keep the same 5” 854x480 display, 2,125mAh battery and 5mp front facing camera.
The 4G version of the K7 sports a quad-core 1.1GHz processor, whilst the 3G recovers with a slightly faster 1.3GHz quad-core effort. RAM sits at 1.5GB or 1GB, whilst internal storage is 8GB or 16GB, both depending on market rather than connectivity.
The other variation is the camera, which rocks either 8mp or 5mp on the rear side, once again dependant on market.

Both K series smartphones will be put on show at CES this week, which is based in Las Vegas. If you don’t happen to have a ticket then you can always read about it on LG's official website as well.
Release dates shouldn’t be too far off, with the end of January a realistic target. Pricing won’t be detailed until that point, so we wouldn’t recommend holding your breath for that kind of information.
