LG has launched two smartphones within its new X series, offering business travellers more options with enhanced camera and display technologies. The X screen and X cam will first be available in South Korea, followed by key markets worldwide including Europe, Latin America and Asia.
“What’s appealing about the X screen and X cam is that each offers one great feature in a complete package that doesn’t break the bank,” says Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Starting with the X series, we’re introducing the best in camera and display technology in a mass-tier device.”
Liken to the LG G5, the X cam inherits a similar 120-degree wide angle lens to complement the standard lens. The 13MP standard angle lens and the 5MP wide angle camera on the rear of the X cam deliver as wide a field of view as the human eye. Featuring a 5.2-inch display, the new smartphone offers a Pop-out Picture feature which combines the two images taken with the standard and wide angle lenses to create a picture-in-a-frame effect. Available only on the X cam, Animated Photo delivers a hybrid video and still photo, one framed by the other; while Panorama View automatically scrolls a wide image instead of a static image.
The X screen, with a 4.93-inch display, comes with a second screen, a feature which was first introduced in the LG V10. The always-on display allows business travellers to check basic information such as time, date and notifications without having to wake up the phone. The X screen’s look is complemented by the crystal-clear glass fiber material that covers the back. The curved edges on its sides create a simple yet elegant design. www.lg.com
