Recently LG officially introduced a new line of smartphones K42 and LG K71. The novelties are built on single-crystal platforms MediaTek, equipped with a battery capacity of 4000 mA-h and pre-installed Android 10 with a proprietary interface. However, the differences are much more.
LG K42 is an entry level model with SoC MediaTek Helio P22, 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB of flash memory. The 8 megapixel front camera has a 6.6-inch HD+ display, and the main camera has 13, 5, 2 and 2 megapixel sensors.
Among the features of this model can be noted protection in accordance with the requirements of the U.S. military standard MIL-STD-810 – for entry-level smartphones, which includes the K42, it is rare option.
LG K71 has another feature – a stylus, which is hidden inside the case. This smartphone is built on SoC MediaTek Helio P35, already has 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory. The front camera of 32 MP resolution is made in a drop-shaped cutout, the main camera uses sensors 48, 5 and 5 MP resolution.
This model also has stereo loudspeakers and a standard headphone jack. There is a similar jack in the K42, but the fingerprint scanner is made differently: in the older model, it is placed on the rear panel, and in the younger model – built into the side switch on key.
As we can see, judging by the options, K42 and K71 are decent and interesting models. The question remains about the price. Alas, LG did not name the start date of smartphone sales and their cost.
