LG has now announced two new K-Series smartphones namely the K7 and K10 at their event in CES 2016. The all new smartphones from LG come with an all-new 2.5D arc glass and a glossy pebble design which helps to improve the grip.
The South Korean electronics giant claims that the smartphone duo are mainly focused towards creation and consumption of multimedia content. LG further claims that the K7 and K10 comes with the most advanced camera technologies that can never be expected in smartphones of its price category.

Specifications wise the LG K10 packs a 5.3 inch HD (1280x720p) In-Cell display. Besides that the LG K10 smartphone comes in two different variants touting 3G and 4G LTE modems respectively. The LG K10 3G variant is powered by an unknown 1.3GHz quad core SoC In terms of optics the LG K10 sports an 8MP rear and 5MP front camera which is further equipped with a number of nifty software tricks including Gesture controls. To power the smartphone LG has bundled in a modest 2300mAH battery under the hood.
As for the LTE variant the LG K10 is powered either by a quad core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz or 1.2GHz, or an octa core SoC clocked at 1.1GHz. Unlike the 3G variant though, the LG K10 4G editions sports an 13MP rear camera (as compared to the 8MP) along with an 8MP or 5MP unit (depending on the market).
Furthermore LG is offering three different memory configurations for the LG K10 which includes - 1GB, 1.5GB and 2GB.

On the other hand the LG K7 comes with a 5 inch FWVGA (854x480p) display and less powerful internals. Just like the bigger sibling the LG K7 will be available in 3G and 4G LTE variants. However the internals are slightly different. While the 3G variant of the LG K7 packs a quad core SoC powered at 1.3GHz, the 4G LTE version sports a 1.1GHz quad processor. This is again strapped with 1GB/1.5GB of RAM and 8GB/16GB of internal storage. In terms of cameras the LG K7 sports an 8MP/5MP rear camera (depending on markets) and a 5MP front facing Selfie Snapper.
