LG might ring in the New Year with a new phone lineup


As everyone gears up for CES 2017, it appears LG might drop new details on a whole batch of handsets, ranging from returning favorites to a brand-new line.

The company reportedly has seven smartphones in the works – six of which might make their debut soon during the lead-up to January’s big trade show, according to VentureBeat.

Four of those phones include the next generation of the K3, K4, K8, and K10 – all of which debuted at CES 2016 as part of LG’s moderately-priced K-series.

Also expected to be revealed at CES 2017 is the smart pen-compatible LG Stylus 3 and the first-in-the-series LG X Calibur – an IP68-rated dust and water resistant phone with reportedly military-grade endurance.

Following CES, the company is also reported to reveal a seventh new phone at the Mobile World Congress 2017 event in Barcelona. This phone is expected to be the sequel to the LG X Power, which VentureBeat’s sources claim will come with a massive 4500mAh battery.

In addition to smartphone announcements, television news, and much more, LG may also be working on a series of four new smartwatches rumored for release in 2017, which all could make the electronics company quuuuite busy come New Year’s.
