LG Introduces X Cam and X Screen Smartphones

lg x cam x screen

This evening, LG announced a new “X series” line of phones that offers an affordable smartphone package with a single “exceptional” feature. The thought is that someone may not have a big budget, but they might want a great camera or great display experience. The X series and its two first phones, the X Cam and X Screen, aim to do that. 

With the X Cam, you are getting a phone with mid-range specs, yet it has a dual-camera experience on the back. The cameras are 13MP and 5MP shooters, which combine to make what LG is calling the “most advanced camera experience in a mass-tier smartphone.” The phone also sports a 5.2-inch FHD display, 2GB RAM, octa-core processor, front 8MP camera, 2520mAh battery, 16GB internal storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Not bad, right?

With the X Screen, you are getting a phone with similarly mid-range specs, but you also get a secondary always-on screen, just like we saw with the LG V10. The phone’s main display weighs in at 4.93-inches and is HD (720p), plus it has a 13MP rear camera, 8MP front camera, quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The X series will arrive in Asia, Europe and Latin America within the next month.


LG TO DEBUT “SPECIALIST” X SERIES  SMARTPHONES AT MWC 2016

X cam and X screen Offer Key Premium Features Without the Premium Price

SEOUL, Feb. 15, 2016 ― Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, LG Electronics (LG) will bring to Mobile World Congress 2016 a new series of smartphones 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 ― will 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 display.

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.

“Everyone has a favorite smartphone feature,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “At LG, we think there’s room for devices that do one thing very well and that customers shouldn’t have to pay for features that they don’t want. At the end of the day, we’re committed to offering consumers more choices.”

LG’s X series will debut in key markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month. Visitors to MWC can see the new X series for themselves at LG’s booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 22-25.

  • Bay_Ranger

    Any hints here for the G5?? … 3D bending glass curved front, crystal-clear glass fiber back??

    • Mike Aurin

      LOL

  • Daistaar

    I wouldn’t mind hearing more about this 3D bending glass.

  • Specs seem good, we’ll have to see the price. 2016 looks to be the budget-mid range phone year.

  • LG is moving to more budget phones knohh?

    What is trending in Hoverboards? -> http://www.hoverboardzone.org/

  • Cole

    Assuming Mediatek SoC especially for the octa core that only clocks in @ 1.14Ghz.

  • eriklee

    Why do Samsung and LG even bother with these under-specced, overpriced midrange devices that will probably never get the next version of Android? Motorola, Alcatel, Asus, and Xiaomi have the midrange market cornered.

    • Daistaar

      Because the world doesn’t revolve around us in the US. A Galaxy S4 may still cost 700 in Latin America. These budget phones that we’d get for free on prepaid cost the same as today’s flagships in these countries. Don’t even think about what today’s flagships cost.

      • eriklee

        Well duh, but why should people buy these LG and Samsung midrange phones when they can get much better products for the same money? There’s a reason the Moto G sells very well in markets like Brazil and India.

        • RiceCake

          Because their target market are not nerds lol. And in the US the prepaid carriers are trying to sell the s3 for 250! That’s insane and def not worth the money. But where I work people won’t even pay that for a smartphone and when I tell them how much I pay out of pocket they look at me like I’m insane. Then they buy the cheap phone under $100.

    • sirmeili

      Because not everyone cares about that. they just care to have a smart phone that is just good enough and want it for a price they can afford. Not everyone is willing to shell out hundreds of dollars every year or two for a phone.

      • eriklee

        My point was not to rail against budget phones, but to point out that much better products exist at the same price points. There’s no reason for cheap phones to suck anymore.

    • RiceCake

      Because they sell loads more of prepaid budget phones than the flagships.
      $30 straight talk lg vs G4. The cheap phones out sells the flagship ten times over. And that crowd doesn’t give two cents about specs or updates. So it’s a better deal for the larger companies. Make it cheap and never have to update, and sell boatloads.

  • Andy

    I would think 90% of the people buying a new phone care more about the camera than the screen. I mean all these phones have nice screens these days..

    • interstellarmind

      Anything over 720p is unnecessary (and a waste of battery).

      I’d gladly pay for a top tier phone with a 720p screen.

      • El_Big_CHRIS

        i’d say 1080p. some 720p screens you can see pixels and are just not too sharp. But at least for todays’ battery tech, >1080p is not necessary

        5.5″ – 1440p

        • Andy

          with all that said. most people wont even care or notice

      • Big EZ

        This is correct, except for phones over ~4.5″.

    • Jarred Sutherland

      I bet with the screen option it needs a second “exceptional” feature called a massive battery.

  • Joey Funk

    Anyone else find it weird that the xscreen has a lower screen resolution than the one in the xcam? You’d thunk they’d at least be the same, if not the other way around…

      Yeah the x screen seems pointless. Is that tiny secondary screen really worth the lacking specs?

    Rather buy a one plus or a moto X

    Does anybody do that with battery life? Something that’s mid-range, doesn’t run like dogshit, and the battery lasts forever? lol

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      OnePlus One

    • Ian Case

      Moto X Play

    • Me

      Moto G 15

  • trixnkix637

    That’s a great idea. An awesome way to break into the budget market currently occupied by One Plus, Blu, etc..
