LG shows X5 and X Skin mid-rangers

LG X5LG’s X series is a constant source of surprises. The company unveiled two new devices, the LG X5 and the LG X Skin. Both newcomers are fairly similar to the LG X Power, except in size and battery capacity.


This is the first to break away from the LG X [word] naming pattern of the series.

The X5 has a bigger 5.5″ screen with 720p resolution. The new phone is thinner and very slightly lighter than the X Power, 7.2mm and 133g (vs. 139g). You do lose a lot in the battery capacity, 2,800mAh (vs. 4,100mAh). (more…)

LG trademarks the X5 moniker

x5LG has recently filed for a trademark on the X5 moninker with the Korean intellectual property rights authority. It’s not just the name that’s being registered, there’s also a logo, with a notched X and a smaller 5 to go with it.

LG’s X-series currently has the X cam and the X screen models, the two positioned somewhere in the midrange. Meanwhile, the LG G5 SE exists, but it’s an alternative to the proper G5 for certain markets, and not really a model to be sold parallel to the G5. (more…)

Snapdragon 652 variant of the LG G5 named G5 SE

G5 SEWe have been hearing about a variant of the LG G5 with a Snapdragon 652 and 3GB RAM headed for Latin America. We have also heard about an LG G5 SE. Turns out, the two are the same.

As we had learned before, the only differences between the two is the slower chipset on the SE and 3GB RAM versus 4GB on the standard G5. Everything else about the two phones is similar, including the design, which explains why the Quick Cover we saw before claimed to fit both devices.

Apart from Latin America, the phone will also be available in China, and CIS countries.
