Moving to the LG K51S, it features a slightly narrower 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ display. It’s powered by an unknown octa-core SoC, 3GB RAM, and 64GB onboard storage and a 4,000 mAh battery. On the back, it houses a 32MP primary, 5MP ultra-wide angle sensor, 2MP Macro, and 2MP depth sensor. LG K51S will be available in three color options: Titanium, Pink and Blue.
And finally, the LG K41S appears to be an entry-level model, packing a 6.5-inch 20:9 HD+ display, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, 2.0 GHz octa-core processor, 13MP standard, 5MP ultra-wide, 2MP Macro and 2MP depth cameras, 8MP front shooter and a 4,000 mAh battery.
Other common features among the devices include Bluetooth 5.0 support, a rear fingerprint sensor, microSD card slot, NFC, a dedicated button to trigger Google Assistant, and MIL-STD 810G compliance. Moreover, LG says all three devices offer great sound experience over headphones thanks to DTS:X 3D Surround Sound support.
