LG will be hosting a media event on Sunday in Barcelona ahead of the official kick-off of the MWC19. The LG G8 ThinQ and the V50 ThinQ are supposed to be the highlights of the event, however, the Korean firm has some other devices up its sleeves that will be on display. And to get other things out of the way, the firm ahead of its Sunday event has unveiled the specs of a bunch of budgets friendly smartphones namely the LG Q60, LG K50 AND LG k40.

The Korean giant says these budget devices are well suited for those in need of premium specs and features without breaking the bank, even though there are little or no features that remind you of anything premium beyond let’s say their look, the DTS-X 3D Surround Sound, AI CAM, and  their military-grade durability MIL-STD-810G against impact, vibration, high temperature, low temperature, thermal shock, and humidity.

The LG Q60 is clearly the best of the trio, looking more or less like a watered-down variant of the upcoming flagship LG Q8. It comes fitted with a horizontally stacked triple rear cameras comprising of a 16-megapixel PDAF sensor, a 5 megapixel super wide angle camera, and 2-megapixel depth sensor, while it gets a FullVision display and waterdrop notch that houses a 13-megapixel front camera.

The LG K50 is clearly the next to the LG Q60, and it is virtually a stepped down version of the Q60, featuring the same 2.0GHz SoC with the same RAM size, same screen size with similar waterdrop notch, still housing the same 13-megapixel selfie shooter. They share the same 3500mAh battery but differs in memory configurations, and rear cameras (dual rear camera for the K50).
