Without any fuss, South Korean giant LG today added a new entry-level smartphone to its LG X series. Named the LG X5 (2018), the new entrant obviously is an update to the LG X5 that debuted in 2016.
It arrives with a regular form factor with a circular fingerprint sensor and a single camera at the rear, while there appear to be extremely large bezels on the top and bottom. Flaunting a 5.5-inch HD display, the LG X5 (2018) is fueled by Mediatek’s MT6750 chipset with octa-core 1.5GHz processor coupled with 2GB RAM, while the storage sized is now up to 32GB.
The camera is the same camera seen in the LG X5 featuring a 5 MP front cam with LED flash, while a similar 13 MP sensor with an LED flash sits at the rear. The device boots Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, while it is powered by a massive 4,500 mAh battery.
It supports various connectivity features including 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band), NFC, and LG Pay.
The LG X5 (2018) is currently available in China via SKT, KT, and LG U+ in KRW 3,63,000 (or around $330).
