LG K9 and K11 debuts in Italy


LG K9

LG Mobile announced the LG K8 (2018) and K10 (2018) earlier in the year at the 2018 MWC.  The company later rebranded the K8 (2018) for Russia where it was launched as the LG K9, now, the company has once again rebranded both the LG K8 (2018) and K10 (2018) for the Italian market, where both devices have just been announced as the LG K9 and LG K11.

Nothing else has changed outside of the change in moniker. The LG K9 (LG K8 2018 for other regions) is encased in a grippy outer plastic shell, with a grid-like design that should be pleasant to hold. It flaunts a 5-inch display with LG’s In-Cell technology, a 1280×720 screen resolution which should amount to a 279ppi. Unlike the Mediatek based LG K11, the LG K9 uses a Snapdragon 210 coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage, which can be expanded up to 32GB using MicroSD card.

The camera on the LG K9 isn’t one that will sweep you off your feet, but for the asking price, an 8MP rear camera and a 5MP sensor with a screen flash should be Okay for your photographic needs.
