LG is being low-key for years now. Although the company has not been a sales or market champion in the recent past, it has remained to target the flagship devices for a long time. After launching the mid-range Velvet in a few markets, they are collecting their pace as they working on two mid-range smartphones. The LG K22 and K42 have been spotted on the Google Play Console listing.
LG’s mid-rangers are always a huge disaster. They release entry-level smartphones in upper mid-range or mid-range price points. Seems like LG is up for another round in the same road. Both devices appear to be the budget smartphones from the company. Moreover, the launch of both smartphones seems imminent too.
A few specifications were revealed in the Google Play Console listing. For starters, the renders of both the devices are leaked here. The LG K22 comes with a waterdrop notch and the K42 on the other hand shows nothing on the display. This could either mean the pop-up camera unit or the upload of the wrong render. Either way, it is too soon to confirm anything.
The LG K42 will arrive with a 6-inch+ IPS LCD display with a resolution of 720 x 1600 pixels and will be powered by MediaTek Helio P22 SoC which will be coupled with 3 GB or 4 GB of RAMs and 64 GB storages. At least the device runs on Android 10. LG’s UX is never appreciated. It is dull with huge elements taking a lot of space.
The K22 on the other hand will be powered by Qualcomm QM215 devices which are meant for Android GO devices. So we can expect this to be an Android GO device that is officially supported by Android. With that being said, this has been an entry-level device for sure with a price of under 10,000 in India.
