LG Electronics announced on Aug. 22 that it has launched two budget smartphone models, the LG K50S and LG K40S.

The K50S has a 6.5-inch screen and a 4,000 mAh battery while the K40S features a 3,500 mAh battery and a 6.1-inch screen. Both products enhance a sense of immersion by minimizing areas covered by front cameras at the tops of the screens. Both products feature a 13-megapixel high-definition camera on the front even though they are budget models. They are also suitable for customers who frequently use selfie functions because they offer the same picture quality as smartphones with rear cameras and have an outfocus function, which emphasizes the object while blurring the background.

The LG K50S is loaded with three cameras –- a 13-million-pixel standard camera, a 5-million-pixel wide-angle camera, and a 2-million-pixel depth camera -- on the back. The LG K40S has a standard 13-million-pixel camera and a 5-million-pixel wide-angle camera. The multiple cameras allow you to shoot a view from different angles at once, helping you take pictures that match people and their backgrounds at once.

The new products passed the US military's military standard “MIL-STD 810G,” also known as “mil specs.” They meet six items -- high temperature, low temperature, thermal shocks, humidity, vibration and shocks and have strong durability. They also have “DTS: X” that let users enjoy 7.1-channel stereophonic sound without high quality earphones.
