LG is set to reveal as many as three smartphones in the mid-range segment at MWC 2019. The company looks to launch the LG Q60, LG K50, and LG K40 phones in Barcelona, and display them in its experience zone at MWC this year. The LG Q60 is the most premium of the lot and is seen sporting a triple rear camera setup, a rear fingerprint sensor, a glossy back panel, and a waterdrop-shaped notch up front. The LG K40, on the other hand, is the most budget offering of the lot, with a single rear camera and a traditional top and bottom chin-bearing display. The company is also set to launch the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG V50 ThinQ 5G smartphones at MWC as well.
While the three phones will be on display at MWC, LG will announce the individual LG Q60, LG K50, and LG K40 pricing and availability details in different regions at a later date. The company confirms that all the three devices come with AI functions like AI Cam that recognises objects and recommends the ideal shooting mode for the best results. There's also a dedicated button to trigger Google Assistant on all the three phones, and DTS:X 3D Surround Sound support. Unfortunately, as we mentioned, LG has not detailed the LG Q60, LG K50, and LG K40's expected price, saying more details will be made available in individual markets closer to launch.
