News: LG X cam and X screen debut at MWC 2016

Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, LG Electronics had showcased a new series of smartphones at MWC 2016, developed to offer customers a unique user experience by offering one exceptional feature at a price that rivals mid-range smartphones.

The first two models in the X series — X cam and X screen — debut at MWC in Barcelona on February 22. The X cam and X screen are designed for customers who do not want or need all the bells and whistles that come with today’s high-end phones but still desire a great camera or advanced The X cam sports dual cameras on the rear and delivers one of the most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone.

Thanks to LG’s seamless 3D Bending Glass, the X cam features an elegant curved finish on the front and with a profile of only 5.2mm, the device is extremely comfortable to hold in the hand. And unlike other boxy and heavier mid-range phones, the X cam tips the scale at only 118g.

The other model, appropriately named X screen, is equipped with an “Always-on” Second Screen which until now has only been available on LG’s premium V10. The Second Screen sits above the main 4.93-inch HD In-cell Touch display and makes multi-tasking a cinch on the X screen.

With the 1.76 inch Second Screen, users can easily access frequently used apps, answer calls without interrupting the current activity or just play music. The Second Screen also lets users check time, date, battery status and other notifications without ever having to turn on the phone. What’s more, the X screen offers a stylish, sleek look with its crystal-clear glass fiber exterior and clean lines.

LG’s X series will debut in key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month.
