Mobile launches continue to face the first half of the year and LG is currently the protagonist. While Samsung, Xiaomi and Sharp have presented their top-of-the-range devices, LG has focused on renewing its mid-low range.
In an attempt to open a bit of space in the market again, LG presented three phones that will be their workhorses for those customers who are not willing to spend more than 150 or 200 euros for a mobile. These are the Features of the LG K41S, K51S and K61.
LG K41S, K51S and K61, a necessary renewal in the family, which arrives with a new member
The last update that this range of LG had was in August of last year, with the launch of the K40S and K50S. These two mobiles, although still sufficient today for the niche market they are targeting, were already beginning to fall short on some things.
Therefore, and when this time is short, it is fair that there is a face lift. The K41S and the K51S claim to be just this, but they are also accompanied by a new older brother, the K61, a mobile that wants to navigate between the mid-low and middle range. These are his technical files:

Designs that bet on sobriety, and are accompanied by fairly regular screens
2020 seems to be the year in which all manufacturers will return to the basics, and LG is not one to be left behind. The three mobiles presented by South Koreans bet on a glass back in fairly neutral colors with which elegance seems to be the way.
In the front, a little more of the same. LG pulls a all screen design with relatively small frames, where the panel is interrupted only where the camera is located. With the K41S, LG is still betting on the central drop-shaped notch, while in the K51S and the K61 they bet on a perforated camera that gives them a more premium appearance and closer to the current design canons.
If of the screens, there is little to say about them. The K41S and the K51S equip HD + resolution IPS panels, something that may be very little for today's standards. In the case of the K61, the thing looks a little better, since it is committed to an IPS panel with Full HD + resolution.
Cameras, a twist to not stay behind, which surprises in quantity
We know that the mobile photography career is getting tougher every day, and in fact we have long anticipated that we expect a lot from the cameras by 2020. That all manufacturers know, and LG was not going to be the exception to this rule. At this point, it is running through a good camera or going unnoticed.
Although we are still waiting to know the launch price of these phones, if they are not very high, we can say that LG put a lot of love to the camera section of these devices. Why? Because all have four rear cameras, they are not necessarily the most advanced, but the quantity is surprising.
The LG K41S equips a configuration of 13 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP that on resolution issues knows little, but that is not the only important thing when capturing an image. A little further on, there is the K51S with its 32 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP + 2 MP cameras. Finally, the strong bet of LG is the K61, with its four cameras of 48 MP + 8 MP + 2 MP + 5 MP, which will paint very well if the price is consistent.
RAM and storage, the verdict depends on the price
In the absence of knowing with certainty and detail the processors that will carry these phones, it is time to talk about RAM and storage. With these sections we have a small problem, if the price does not accompany, these three mobiles can arrive short of RAM and storage compared to other competing devices.
Why do we say it? Because the 3GB of RAM of the K41S and K51S already scratch a little, let alone the 32GB of internal storage of the first. For its part, the K61 with its configuration of 4GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage may be fine for the price range, but if it goes beyond 200 euros, few people will keep an eye on it.
Availability and price of the new LG K41s, K51S and K61
Until now, We do not know the date when these phones will be available for sale in stores, as well as its final price. But being LG such a large company, we are not worried that there is a double launch in different markets, nor that the availability goes to several months.
Surely soon we will have new news about these phones, so do not despair. Meanwhile, comment with us What do you think of these new LG?We do not think bad devices, but until we know the final price we can not give a verdict.
