The X Cam and X Screen are part of LG’s new X series of smartphones.
LG is keeping things interesting leading up to MWC 2016. The Korean manufacturer will be unveiling the LG G5 on February 21st, and it has now announced that the G5 will be accompanied by the new X series of smartphones. The X Cam and X Screen are the first in the series, and each device in the lineup will be focused at offering a premium feature on other regular hardware.
For the X Cam and X Screen, that focus is a great camera and a great display. The X Cam is claimed to offer the “most advanced camera experience” on a mid-range device, with a dual camera setup including 13 MP and 5 MP sensors at the back. The front camera is an 8 MP unit, and other specs include a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a 1.14GHz octa-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a 2,520 mAh battery, and LTE connectivity.
The X Screen comes with an always-on second screen similar to the LG V10. The 1.76-inch second screen sits on top of the 4.93-inch main display of HD resolution, and will offer access to features like quick access to apps, notifications, answering calls, or controlling music. The X Screen shares most of the X Cam’s specs, but mixes things up with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, only a single 13 MP rear camera, and a 2,300 mAh battery. Both handsets run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box.
The X Cam will be offered in Titan Silver, White, Gold and Pink Gold, while the X Screen will come in black, white and Pink Gold. The X series will go on sale in various markets next month, with other devices in the lineup to be showcased at LG’s booth at MWC. No details on pricing have been announced.
