South Korean phone manufacturer LG Electronics has announced the launch of the LG K11+ in the South American country of Chile. This smartphone appears to be a rebranded variant of the LG K10 (2018) that was first launched in February this year, ahead of MWC 2018. The phone is available in Moroccan Blue and Terra Gold colour variants in the country. It is also being reported that the LG K11a has been announced alongside the K11+. Both of the smartphones share design language and specifications, albeit with a difference in the rear camera and storage.
A report by GSMArena claims that the LG K11a (Alpha) has also been announced, however there is no trace of this smartphone on the official website. According to the report, most specifications of the K11a match that of the K11+; except the fact that the K11a has 2GB RAM and 16GB storage, and a 8-megapixel rear camera.
The report also mentions that the LG K11+ will be priced at around EUR 270 (roughly Rs. 21,800) while the K11a will get a price tag of EUR 220 (roughly Rs. 17,700) and will be released sometime in August.
The LG K11+ runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box, and sports a 5.3-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) Pandaking MN228 display with a 16:9 aspect ratio and in-cell technology. It is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC, paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Storage is expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB).
