To the unfamiliar, a standard LG smartphone these days usually looks like this: it has slightly curved leading and bottom edges that have sharp corners, a distinct screen that stops suitable at its bezels and an general rigid, clean-slice aesthetic. And of class, its management buttons are positioned on the back.
But at CES 2016, LG introduced a new structure tactic with its newest pair of handsets, the K10 and K7, which activity a various search in contrast with that of LG’s string of devices debuted in the previous yr, like the substantial-close V10 and G4 flagship.
However both phones however have their energy and volume keys on the rear, they take on a far more natural search. The corners are softly rounded, and their displays curve downward into their edges, which LG phone calls “two.5D Arc Glass.” The latter effect is practically nothing new, and we’ve viewed it as early as 2012 with the Google Nexus four (which LG made) and far more not too long ago with the Onyx version of the OnePlus X final December. But it is just one of the very first cases that the element has been so prominent on an LG-branded smartphone.
Compared to the 5-inch K7, the K10 is a slightly far more effective model. It arrives in a lot of various variants dependent on the marketplace, just one of which consists of two individual LTE and 3G versions. Its specs involve:
• 5.three-inch Hd screen
• 13-megapixel rear camera eight- or 5-megapixel front-dealing with camera (LTE version)
• eight-megapixel rear camera eight- or 5-megapixel front-dealing with camera (3G version)
• one.2GHz quad-core processor, one.3GHz quad-core processor or one.14GHz octa-core processor (LTE version)
• one.3GHz quad-core processor (3G version)
• 16 or 8GB interior storage two, one.5 or 1GB RAM
• two,300mAh battery
• Google Android 5.one Lollipop software
All through my short time with the unit, I favored the easy, curved edges. Its basic shape, nonetheless, reminds me of the Samsung Galaxy S3. Even so, I do welcome LG’s exertion to update its structure. LG has famous that these phones are intended to cater to a young viewers, and although I will not know if this pebble-like structure will acquire them about, it truly is refreshing to see a far more pure search from the typical lineup of “handsome” LG handsets. Moreover, I’m a significant fan of displays that curve at the edges.
