However, as per reports none of these handsets will be available in one particular market but there is a variety to choose from for the manufacturer. The sources reveal that the growth for the Korean giant is leveling up lately and therefore it is looking forward to take the market share from Samsung in the mid to lower range markets.
LG has posted on Facebook:
“As part of LG’s new affordable mid-range smartphone series, the K10 and K7 stand out both in design and camera features. The glossy pebble design complemented with intricate woven back patterns provides a better grip and unique features including the ‘gesture interval shot’ and ‘tap and shot’ will bring a hassle-free selfie experience to those in uses.”
