LG will debut 5 new phones at CES

LG is embracing the mid-range with its latest smartphones, set to launch at CES 2017.

CES isn’t meant to be where technology companies announce phones. That’s more typically something you’d see at Mobile World Congress, but that didn’t stop Asus from teasing its next ZenFone line this week.

LG has gone one better, outright revealing what it will announce at CES. Forget one or maybe two ZenFones, because LG’s bringing in new phones in bulk, with 5 new handsets set to make their debut in Las Vegas in a fortnight’s time.

LG isn’t announcing 5 new flagships, however, instead focusing very strongly on its value and mid-range markets, where it has traditionally offered very decent options.

It will launch a new model of its LG Stylus range, the LG Stylus 3, as well as four new K-series phones, the K10, K8, K4 and K3. They’re all Android devices, although there’s a mix of Android 6.0 ("Marshmallow") and Android 7.0 ("Nougat") across the ranges, with the lower spec K3 and K4 missing out on Google’s latest Android update, at least for now.

There’s no word as yet as to whether we’ll see any of these handsets officially released in Australia, although LG has launched many of its previous models locally. We’ll find out when CES 2017 kicks off in a couple of weeks.
