LG K40S and LG K50S: better cameras and battery for the cheaper price

By  Goraud Mazanec 2019-08-23 2110 0

During the 2019 MWC LG launched the LG K40 and LG K50 and at the next major trade fair in the sector, the IFA which starts on 1st September, is the turn of its improved versions and which are called LG K40S and LG K50S. The South Koreans could not wait for the fair and presented them as an aperitif.

These new LGs mean better cameras, screens and batteries than their predecessors, while retaining other elements and, we assume, at the same adjusted price that characterises the LG K-series.

LG K50S review

We start with the more powerful of the two, at least in the general computation, because technically both models seem to mount the same processor of eight cores to 2 GHz without specifying, but that perhaps is the same MediaTek Helio P22 of the previous model.

LG K50S 

The LG K50 already included notch screen, so the change in this LG K50S is not too pronounced: the diagonal rises to 6.5 inches with HD+ resolution, and the terminal body grows a few millimeters over last year, although it is less thick.

While in storage and RAM we keep the same 3 GB + 32 GB, the battery capacity rises to 4,000 mAh and we have the same sound DTS:X 3D and protection with standard MIL-STD 810G. There is also the fingerprint reader, on the back, as well as the exclusive button to invoke the assistant.

The main change of this LG K50S is in the camera. In front the 13 MPs are kept, but behind it comes the three 13 + 5 + 2 MP lenses, with the new 5 megapixel wide-angle sensor.

LG K40S review

The LG K40S has a major renovation, as the screen goes from having traditional edges to adopting the notch in the form of a drop. Thus, it manages to raise the diagonal up to 6.1 inches with HD+ resolution, being, of course, a little bigger than its predecessor.

LG K50S​ 

Inside we have the same processor of eight cores to 2 GHz, with an amount of RAM of 2 GB or 3 GB depending on markets and a battery that rises another 500 mAh to reach 3,500 mAh. Not missing the fingerprint reader, back, the military protection MIL-STD 810G or the sound DTS:X 3D.

The LG K40S increases the megapixels in its selfies camera, which reaches 13 MP, and then adds to the double camera with a combination of 13 MP + 5 MP, the same as the LG K50S but without the 2 MP depth sensor.

LG K40S and LGK 50S: price and versions

The LG K40S and LG K50S have been announced as an aperitif for the 2019 IFA trade fair which will start on September 6. We don't know their prices for now, but they will be sold in Europe, Latin America and Asia from October in two colours: black and blue. During IFA 2019 we will probably know the details and prices.
