LG’s new phone has four cameras



LG Electronics released a trio of budget smartphones Tuesday in a bid that the combination of affordability and enhanced cameras will help its struggling mobile business.

LG brings three new K series models - K61, K51S and K41S - to Europe and Central and South America in the second quarter. They all feature a cluster of four cameras on the back of the phone.

The company did not disclose the prices of the new handsets, but industry observers expect them to be sold for around 355,000 won ($300).

The new K series smartphones also boast artificial intelligence features, according to LG.

The K61 sports a 48-megapixel main camera, along with an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 5-megapixel macro lens and a 5-megapixel depth sensor on the back.

The K51S has a 32-megapixel main camera, while the K41S boasts a 13-megapixel main sensor. Both models come with a 5-megapixel ultrawide lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.

When it comes to the front, the K61 has a 16-megapixel camera, while the K51S and K41S feature a 13-megapixel and an 8-megapixel camera, respectively.

All three models have a 6.5-inch screen, with the K61 and the K51S featuring a punch-hole display design. The new K series will be powered by a 4,000-milliamp-hour battery.

LG hopes that the new K series models can boost its sales. Last year, the company’s mobile business posted sales of 5.9 trillion won, down from 7.9 trillion won in 2018, while operating losses widened from 789 billion won to 1.01 trillion won over the same period.
