With little or no fanfare, LG has add to its midrange K-series with two new entries – the LG K42 and LG K71. The two smartphones come with MediaTek’s Helio chipsets, 4,000 mAh batteries and run Android 10 with LG’s UX on top.
The LG K71 is a bit advance than the K42 and features a 6.8-inch FHD+ display with a waterdrop notch and 20.5:9 aspect ratio. It also comes with something that is not that common these days – a built-in stylus. The stylus is not advanced as what we have on Samsung’s Galaxy Note line, so no Bluetooth or motion tricks here.
Around the back, you will find a triple cam setup with a 48MP primary shooter and 5MP ultrawide module accompanied by a 5MP depth helper. The selfie shooter has a 32MP sensor.
The K71 is powered by the Helio P35 chipset alongside 4GB RAM and 128GB storage which is firther expandable via microSD cards.
The K71 has a 4,000 mAh battery, headphone jack and dual speaker setup with DTS:X 3D support. The phone boots Android 10 with LG’s UX interface.
