South Korean mobile and technology powerhouse LG is currently on the works of expanding its mid-range line-up of smartphones, the K Series. LG launched the K Series with only two smartphones, the K10 and K7, during the 2016 Consumer Electronics and Consumer Technology Tradeshow (CES) held last January in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA. Three more smartphones, the K8, K4 and K5 were introduced to some strategic markets around the world.

 

Here are some of the important specifications of two of the latest K-series smartphones, the LG K530 and LG K535 as spotted on Geekbench’s online site.

 

Both the LG K530 and LG K535 are expected to run on Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 and to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 SoC (system on chip) with 1.2GHz octa-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The K530 will probably have only 2GB of RAM and 1.2GHz clocks peed while the K535 will boast a more powerful 3GB of RAM and 1.4GHz clock speed. But because of mismatching information on the microchips and maximum clock speeds, some people speculate that Snapdragon 435 with maximum clock speed of 1.4GHz will be used instead of Snapdragon 430 with a lower 1.2GHz clock speed.

 

With only the software and operating system information at our hands, there is certainly so much to watch out for about these two interesting smartphones in the future; if ever they will be released by LG to the public.

 

To compare, LG K7 and K10 both run on Android Lollipop 5.1 operating system, feature an 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera, and have an expandable internal storage of up to 8GB. The K10 gains an edge in its 2300mAh battery (compared to K7’s 2125mAh) and camera features such as laser, LED flash and autofocus. These two phones that were first produced and launched in India also features a sleek and elegant design which makes them look more expensive compared to competing medium-range smartphones.
