The Korean company LG has always known how to defend itself well in the entry range. The battle in the lower price ranges also has the main manufacturers as protagonists and the different launches are happening as 2020 progresses. Now we know that LG is preparing two economic terminals of the “K” series and whose launch could be just around the corner.
Rumors and leaks are usually more common in the mid and high range. The most modest phones technically generate less interest, but like the most powerful, we usually know your technical data before being presented. These terminals do not attract as many focuses nor are they protagonists of great features or advertising campaigns, but even so, they end up in the hands of millions of users who do not need anything more advanced. Although LG is immersed in its new Velvet range, the company will soon unveil new cheap phones.
Details of the LG K22 and LG K42
Qualcomm and MediaTek
On this occasion, the protagonists are the LG K22 and LG K42, which have already been filtered on the Google Play console, which highlights some of its main technical features. There are substantial differences between the two, especially in the processor section, where the bets are from MediaTek and Qualcomm. He LG K42 has been listed with a MediaTek Helio P22, Meanwhile he K22 does the same with a Snapdragon QM215.
Notch and popup camera
The K22 will arrive with a drop-shaped notch for its screen, while the LG K42, in the upper range, does not show anything similar, not even a hole in its panel. This means that the selfie sensor could appear in the form of a pop-up camera, although it is something that cannot be guaranteed even given the data that is handled. The listing details that the LG K42 will have an HD + screen and that its MediaTek chip will come accompanied by 3GB of RAM and a Tech PowerVR GE8320 GPU, in addition to Android 10 as standard.
With Android Go?
The technical difference between the two will be remarkable, since the LG K22 will only reach 2 GB of RAM, which possibly means that we will be facing a new Android Go device. It was recently learned that Google would set a new parameter of 2 GB of RAM for those devices running this lightweight version of Android. As we say, LG has not given clues about the launch of these devices, but their appearance on the Google console may be significant from an imminent introduction.
