LG K40S, features, price and opinions


LG has just unveiled the LG K50S and LG K40S, two new devices that come to improve the LG K40 and LG K50 that we met last February at MWC. Of the two, the K40S is the one that offers tighter performance. It is an entry phone, built in polycarbonate, which includes an eight-core processor, double main camera, a 3,500 mAh battery or Android 9 Pie.

Both devices will be present at the IFA in Berlin next September, where we will know prices and availability. However, it is known that they will be sold in Europe, Latin America and Asia from October in two colors: black and blue.

At first glance, the LG K40S is an all-screen phone, with a notch in the shape of a drop of water, in which the frames are quite small. However, they are somewhat more prominent than in other models, especially at the bottom. Its rear part is made up of a double sensor located horizontally and a fingerprint reader occupying the central position. The terminal seems to be made of polycarbonate, in black or matte blue colors. The terminal is far from others with a premium design, although it must not be forgotten that it is an entry phone. It should be noted that it has a standard size panel: 6.1 inches with HD + resolution and a 19: 5: 9 ratio. FullVision technology is not lacking, which improves quality when viewing all types of content.

Inside the LG K40S there is room for a 2.0 GHz cho-core processor, accompanied by 2 or 3 GB of RAM. Its storage capacity is 32 GB (expandable by using microSD cards). Do not expect great performance with it, basically the K40S is prepared to use simple apps such as Instagram or WhatsApp , making a measured use at all times. We can say that it is perfect as a second mobile or for those users who do not want to complicate their life with a mobile device.


On a photographic level, the new LG model includes a dual 13 + 5 megapixel sensor, the same configuration as the LG K50S, but without the 2 megapixel depth sensor. For selfies we have a 13 megapixel front sensor (in the notch). Other features of the LG K40S are a 3,500 mAh battery, MIL-STD 810G military protection or DTS: X 3D sound. The device is also governed by Android 9 Pie.

Price and availability

At the moment we do not know the exact price or availability of the LG K40S. The company is expected to have more data from next September 6 at the IFA in Berlin. What it does seem is that it will land sometime in October in Europe, Latin America and Asia. It can be purchased in two colors: black or blue.
