LG Electronics (LG) today announced new X series smartphones that share many of the top end features found on LG’s flagship G and V series handsets. X screen and X cam bring additional depth and options to LG’s lineup of mass-tier offerings. These new phones are rolling out this month in the markets of the GCC region.

LG’s X series lineup has a unique feature for each of the phones. Each device is matched to a specific user need or interest, such as greater battery capacity, more sophisticated photographic effects, or a larger display.


“Each of the X series smartphones provides its users uncompromising quality and one specific and truly outstanding feature that speaks the user’s personal preference and lifestyle,” said Mr. Yong Geun Choi, President of LG Electronics Gulf. “The newly expanded X series demonstrates LG’s commitment to offering top flight performance with premium features at a satisfying price.”

The X screen comes with LG’s Second Screen, a feature which was first introduced in the LG V10. The Always-on Display allows users to check basic information such as time, date and notifications without having to wake up the phone, the first mid-tier smartphone to offer this unique feature. 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.

The LG X cam offers 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 (http://on.fb.me/1pPxEd5). And Panorama View automatically scrolls a wide image instead of a static image and the Signature feature allows users to add a caption or byline after taking a photo.
