Earlier these smartphones are leaked on the LG Hungarian website through which we get the first look at the design and hardware of the device. But Now it is Officially LG K8 LTE and LG K5 are launched.
LG K8 features a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels)display and it is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor. The company has revealed that the smartphone will be available in different RAM versions depending on the market – 1.5GB in EU and North America and 1GB of RAM in Latin America. It includes a 8 GB internal storage and a 8-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The handset is backed by 2125mAh removable battery. LG K8 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of box.
Coming to connectivity LG K8 supports 4G LTE apart from Wi Fi 802.11 b, g, n, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, and Micro-USB. The handset measures 146×71.5×8.7mm and will be available in Gold, Indigo, and White colours.

LG EXPANDS ITS MID-RANGE K SERIES WITH TWO NEW MODELS
With Great Looks and Great Performance, K8 and K5 Give Value-Conscious Customers More Reasons to Choose LG
SEOUL, Mar. 15, 2016 ― Following the rollout of the K10, K7 and K4 earlier this year, LG Electronics (LG) announced that two new members of its K Series lineup, K8 and K5, will be introduced in key markets this week. The K8 will be available to consumers in regions including Asia, Africa, the Middle East, CIS and Latin America. The K5 will target customers in Europe, CIS and Latin America (model name Q6 in Mexico).
Revealed publicly for the first time at CES 2016, the K Series delivers a feature-rich UX and an advanced camera without the premium price. Its brilliant finish was influenced by the glossy pebble design language of previous K Series devices which imparts a luxuriousness and modern look to the collection.
The K8 is most notable for its premium design highlighted by smooth, curved edges as a result of its 2.5D Arc Glass while its woven back cover offers a comfortable and secure grip. Users can enjoy clear, crisp images on the HD-quality display and take incredible selfies with the 5MP front camera and popular options such as Gesture Interval Shot and Flash for Selfie.
To offer a superb viewing experience, the K5 sports a best-in-class 5-inch display matched to a sleek, metallic body. The 2MP camera on the front with Gesture Shot makes taking selfies even more fun and with three different colors to choose from — Gold, Silver and Titan — the K5 is sure to stand out in its category of mostly black and grey competitors.
“We are aware of the diverse needs and wants of our customers around the world and our goal is to deliver the best products to meet their expectations,” said Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The K8 and K5 will be fantastic choices for anyone who is seeking a smartphone with great looks, great looks, at a great price.”
