LG has unveiled two new X-series smartphones, the X5 and X Skin, in South Korea. The company has also unveiled the X Power smartphone in its home turf which was last month announced globally.
The LG X5 has been priced at SKW 200,000 (approximately Rs. 11,700) and will be available in White and Black colours. The LG X Skin has been priced at SKW 231,000 (approximately Rs. 13,500) and will be available in Gold and Titanium colours. Unfortunately, the company has not revealed availability plans for the LG X5 and X Skin smartphones outside Korea as of now.
Both the X5 and X Skin smartphones come with similar innards: they are powered by 1.3GHz quad-core processors, bear 16GB inbuilt storage, and can be expanded via microSD card (up to 32GB). The handsets run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box and support dual-SIM.
