It might not be the splendid G9 or V60 announcement you were hoping to get, but LG just introduced three new K series smartphones with decent specs at a promised attractive price tag, although yet to get specific numbers.

The LG K61, K51S and K41S all run octa-core CPUs (likely MediaTek chipset) and have 6.5-inch screen diagonals (albeit with differing ratios). The trio has 4,000mAh batteries and all have some sort of MIL-STD 810G compliance for durability. They also all come with USB-C ports, four cameras and a fingerprint scanner on the back.

The LG K51S’ screen, also 6.5-inch is a slightly taller 20:9 FullVision Display and runs a lower HD+ resolution.

At the back of the phone, there’s a 32MP main camera, a 5MP ultrawide snapper and two 2MP sensors – dedicated macro and a depth sensor. On the opposite side is a 13MP selfie.

The LG K51S comes with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.
