LG X cam and LG X screen coming to Mobile World Congress 2016

The South Korean consumer electronics maker LG will have a series of new smartphone premieres at the MWC 2016.

LG is expected to reveal the new LG G5 flagship smartphone at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona next week. Ahead of the biggest mobile technology show, LG announced the LG Stylus 2 and the new LG X series. In an attempt to make LG's mobile phone offering more granular, the company created the LG X series.

Each LG X model is featuring one exceptional feature at a price that of mid-range smartphones. The first two models in the X series are the X cam and X screen. Both new smartphones will debut at MWC 2016.

The LG X cam and LG X screen are designed for customers who do not want or need all the bells and whistles that come with today’s high-end phones but still desire a great camera or advanced display.

The X cam sports dual cameras on the rear and delivers one of the most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone. Thanks to LG’s seamless 3D Bending Glass, the X cam features an elegant curved finish on the front and with a profile of only 5.2mm, the device is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand. And unlike other boxy and heavier mid-range phones, the X cam tips the scale at only 118g.

The other model, appropriately named X screen, is equipped with an “Always-on” Second Screen which until now has only been available on LG’s premium V10. The Second Screen sits above the main 4.93-inch HD In-cell Touch display and makes multi-tasking a cinch on the X screen.

With the 1.76 inch Second Screen, users can easily access frequently used apps, answer calls without interrupting the current activity or just play music. The Second Screen also lets users check time, date, battery status and other notifications without ever having to turn on the phone. What’s more, the X screen offers a stylish, sleek look with its crystal-clear glass fiber exterior and clean lines.

“Everyone has a favorite smartphone feature,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “At LG, we think there’s room for devices that do one thing very well and that customers shouldn’t have to pay for features that they don’t want. At the end of the day, we’re committed to offering consumers more choices.”

LG’s X series will debut in key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month.
