LG will refresh the mid-range K8 (2017) and K10 (2017) at MWC 2018

LG has confirmed that it will showcase a refreshed K8 and K10 at MWC 2018 – with both models set to hit the shelves in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East sometime in the near future.

The K10 (2018) will retain a similar design to the LG K10 (2017), though it will benefit from a trio of new colour variants – Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue and Terra Gold – and some basic hardware improvements, the firm revealed on Thursday.

It’s looking like the camera setup has been the biggest focus of the firm’s effort. In a statement issued to Trusted Reviews, a representative announced that there’s a new 13MP camera sensor that’s equipped with Phase-detection and autofocus.

They also noted that the LG K10 (2018) will be available in a total of three variants: K10, K10 Alpha and K10 Plus. All three will come with a 5.3-inch HD (1280 x 720) screen, a 1.5GHz octa-core CPU and a 3000mAh non-removable battery.

The latter will, however, have 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage as standard, while the former and middle will have a mere 2GB and 16GB. Oh, and they won’t all come with the same camera setup. The K10 Alpha will have a smaller 8MP sensor.



LG said the K8 (2018) hasn’t been treated to as big of an upgrade as the K10. It has a revamped 8MP rear-facing camera, a faster rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, a 1.3GHz quad-core CPU and 2GB of RAM (up from 1.5GB), but that’s about it.

Mobile World Congress (MWC 2018) is scheduled to run from February 26 through March 1. A number of leading manufacturers – including Huawei, LG, Samsung and Sony – are expected to take the wraps off new hardware at the gathering.
