Samsung isn’t the only smartphone maker announcing new phones at MWC. LG is getting in on the action with the K8 and K10, two new budget phones with beastly specs.

In total, LG has unveiled four new devices (three versions of the K10 and one for the K8). The specs differ slightly for each model, but each offers fantastic specs. If it were a few years ago, they’d be top-end flagships.

The K10 breaks into three models: the K10+, K10, and the K10a. LG altered the memory, storage and camera to adjust the pricing. Here’s how each device’s differing specs break down:

  • K10+: 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with expandability and 13MP main camera and 8MP front-facing camera
  • K10: 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with expandability and 13MP main camera and 8MP front-facing camera
  • K10a: 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage with expandability and 8MP main camera and 5MP front-facing camera

Even for all of their differences, the devices share the same 5.3-inch 720p display, 1.5Ghz octa-core processor, 3,000mAh battery, and fingerprint scanner.

LG kept things simple with the K8 by offering one variant. Outfitted with a 5-inch 720p display, 1.3Ghz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 2,500mAh battery and 8MP camera, it will be the low-end device of choice.

All four devices will come with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.

LG didn’t get into specifics about pricing or availability, but it is showing off the devices at Mobile World Congress, where it might expand upon details for the new devices.
