LG Electronics (LG) unveiled its new K50S and K40S smartphones at IFA 2019 to complement its competitive line of affordable smartphones.

The upgraded K series models are equipped with improved cameras, better displays and larger batteries among other improvements for a more premium multimedia experience without the premium price.

Like LG’s flagship G and V series, LG K50S sports three rear cameras: 13MP with PDAF, 5MP Super Wide Angle, and 2MP lens with Depth Sensor. The Depth Sensor produces clearer separation between subject and background when shooting portraits for more realistic depth of field.

LG K40S offers two rear cameras: 13MP lens with PDAF and 5MP Super Wide Angle. As the first K series devices to offer Super Wide Angle, both smartphones are now perfect for large group photos and immersive landscapes.

Both smartphones deliver 13-million pixels.

The K50S comes with a 6,5-inch FullVision display while the K40S offers a 6,1-inch HD+ screen. They also deliver realistic and dynamic audio with DTS:X 3D Surround Sound.

Guaranteed to stand up to the rigors of daily use, both K50S and K40S are to meet the US military MIL-STD-810G standard for durability and come equipped with optimised batteries. Google Assistant is only a single button press away.

The new K series will be available in Europe, Latin America and Asia from October in two signature colours: New Aurora Black and New Moroccan Blue.
