LG K50S, features, price and opinions

lg k50s 2

No more than a year has passed since the launch of the K50 and K40 and today the South Korean company presents the LG K5Ss and K40S. The new mid-range models arrive as successors to the models presented during this year's Mobile World Congress, with characteristics that are mostly identical to those of the K40 and K50. The model that interests us this time is the K50S , whose main difference with the cheaper model is based on the triple camera, the size and the battery.

Design: keeping the lines in a larger size

At the design level there are few differences that we find in the LG K50S with respect to the K50. Beyond increasing the size of the device, the lines are practically identical in both devices.

With a body made entirely of polycarbonate with MIL-STD 810G protection against drops and scratches, the K50S has a 6.5-inch screen with HD + resolution and a 19.5: 9 ratio , which is accompanied by a notch in the shape of a drop of water, which helps to obtain even more profitable margins.

For the rest, the terminal maintains the rear location of the fingerprint sensor and the arrangement of its cameras, which become three this time.

Same? hardware with few new features

As far as technical characteristics are concerned, the company has not given many details about aspects such as the processor model or the graphic unit. The specifications speak of an eight-core Mediatek processor at 2 GHz frequency, specifications that coincide with those of the Mediatek Helio P22 processor that we already saw in the LG K50 .

This is accompanied by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage expanded by SD cards of up to 2 TB. The rest of the features are made up of a 4,000 mAh battery, a micro USB connection, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and WiFi a / c.

The triple camera reaches the mid-range of LG

The reason for this LG K50S is precisely its camera, or rather, its cameras. Although the manufacturer has not given many details about its characteristics, it is known that it has three independent sensors on the rear of 13, 5 and 2 megapixels .

While the 5 megapixel sensor has a wide-angle lens, the 2-megapixel sensor uses its functions to calculate the distances of objects to improve the depth of the photographs. For its part, the front sensor consists of a single 13-megapixel camera with a focal aperture unknown at the moment.

Price and availability of the LG K50S in Spain

As is usual in this type of launch, LG has not given details about the availability of the LG or its price. If we look at the data of the LG K50, the terminal could be launched in Spain for a price of 199 euros at the time of its departure , although we will have to wait for the official confirmation from the company.
