LG is doubling down on it strategy of launching affordable mobiles with flagship features with the new LG K50S and K40S. The flagship K50S (pictured) leads the charge with a triple rear camera setup - consisting of a 13MP main camera, 5MP super wide angle lens, and a 2MP lens with depth sensor - and a large 6.5in FullVision HD+ display. The K40S, meanwhile, packs a 6.1in HD+ screen and two rear cameras. Both handsets are powered by a 2.0 GHz octa-core chipset, and sport DTS: X 3D surround sound. Other differences between the two are marginal, although as you'd expect the K50S does pack a little bit more RAM and comes with a slightly larger battery. Oh, and despite telling us how its latest creations represent "exceptional value," LG hasn't actually revealed any pricing information as yet, but it's probably sensible to expect a mid-range price that won't break the bank.
