LG has recently decided to reform its smartphone business with the demise of the G-series in favor of LG Velvet lineup. Just recently, the company also revealed one of its most innovative devices in the form of the LG Wing – A swivelling display smartphone. With its “flagship” plans completed, the company is now releasing a bunch of mid-range phones. Today, the company is revealing two models for its K-series with large displays, capable batteries and high-resolution cameras – meet the LG K62 and LG K52.

The LG K62 is powered by an unspecified Octa-Core chipset with 2.3GHz paired with 4GB of RAM. The company has been quite generous to pack this handset with 128GB of Storage. You can even expand this amount via a good microSD card. The phone boasts MIL-STD-810G rating so it’s quite durable and resistant.

The phone is built around a 6.6-inch LCD with FHD+ resolution and 20: aspect ratio. This display brings a center-aligned punch hole that serves as a house for the 28MP selfie camera. This is an unusual resolution, we have to say. Moving around to the back we have a Quad-Camera setup comprising a 48MP primary, 5MP ultra-wide angle shooter, 2MP macro and 2MP dept lens. The camera app allows the user to quickly launch a YouTube live stream.

Other features includes a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB-C with USB 3.1 Gen connectivity and a 4,000mAh battery. The phone also runs Android 10 with LG UX running atop.
