LG has updated its offering with two new smartphones, the X5, and the X Skin. These are the same phones that went official in Korea last month. Both the X5 and the X Skin are fitted with a 1.3GHz quad-core SoC and are designed to look sleek.


The LG X5 comes with a 5.5-inch HD display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor alongside 2GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 16GB of Internal Storage which is expandable up to 32GB with the microSD card slot. The X5 features a 13-Megapixel primary sensor and a 5-Megapixel secondary one. The smartphone touts the usual bunch of connectivity options including 4G LTE, Dual SIM, Wi-Fi 802.11, Bluetooth 4.2, NFC and GPS. LG X5 runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is backed by a 2,800mAh battery pack.

LG X Skin is kind of a watered-down variant of the X5. The X Skin is fitted with a 5-inch HD display and the RAM is brought down to 1.5GB. The storage option is similar to the one offered on the X5 but the camera features have been toned down. Primary camera in the X Skin is an 8-Megapixel sensor while the secondary camera is a 5-Megapixel unit. The LG X Skin runs on Android Marshmallow and is backed by a smaller 2,100mAh battery pack. On the connectivity front, the X Skin offers a similar set of options as the X5.

The LG X5 will be made available in White and Indigo Black color while the LG X Skin will retail in Gold and Titanium colours. The LG X5 is priced at 200,000 Korean won (apprx. $173/Rs 11,675) and the X Skin is priced at 231,000 Korean won ($200).
