LG K20 and LG K30: The brand’s new low-end

LG has been expanding its input range these past few months. We have been able to see how models such as the K40 and K50 have arrived in the Korean brand’s catalogue. Now two new phones are added to it, which are the LG K20 and K30. Two new phones within its low range, which share many elements in common with other models that we have already seen on their part.

The LG K20 and K30 are committed to a continuous design and to maintaining many of the elements that we have already seen in other phones within this market segment of the Korean brand. But in this case they perform well, for their range. So they can have their audience in the market.

A screen with thin side frames in both cases, although the upper and lower frames are quite pronounced. So the Korean brand has not followed many of the trends of the moment in these phones. A simple, traditional design, but one that works and is not so important in this case.

Specifications LG K20 and K30

The Korean brand leaves us with two of its simplest phones, as usual in this K range. The LG K20 is the simpler of the two models, using a MediaTek processor in this case. The two have certain aspects in common, such as cameras, screen size, battery capacity, and connectivity. So it’s the little details that make these two models different. These are its full specifications:

A detail that surely has not escaped you in these two phones, is that none of them have a fingerprint sensor. It is very common for low-end Android phones not to use this reader, something that the Korean brand has also repeated in this case with both phones. Nothing is mentioned about face unlock on the phone in this case either. So it seems that neither of these two input range will have these systems.

The LG K20 is the simplest, as we have mentioned. In your case, It has a Mediatek MT6739 processor., very simple, but in general it should give us the expected performance in this range. It uses a RAM of 1 GB of capacity, but it has 16 GB of storage, which we can expand up to 32 GB in this case, using a microSD. The two phones have the same 3,000 mAh battery, as well as having the same cameras. It also highlights the presence of the button for Google Assistant in them.

On the other hand we have the LG K30, which makes use of a Snapdragon 425 processor. It is one of the most popular and common processors in the low end of Android. Although it is one more powerful than MediaTek, so it is a somewhat more complete model. In addition, in this case it has 2 GB of RAM. Rest of the specifications on the phone remain the same as the LG K20. One of the few differences is that in this phone we have NFC available, which will allow mobile payments to be made with the device.

Price and launch

Both the LG K20 and the KG K30 will be launched in two colors on the market, which are Aurora Black (black) and Moroccan Blue (blue). They are the only options on each of the two phones. For now, the phones have been seen on LG’s Italian website. For this reason, it is to be hoped that its launch in various markets in Europe, including Spain, will not take too long. But we will have to wait for news from the company in this regard.

The prices of the two phones have been known thanks to the Italian website. The LG K20 will arrive with a price of 109.99 euros. While the LG K30 will be somewhat more expensive as we could already imagine, its price being 149.99 euros in this case. Surely they will be the same prices that the two phones have when they are launched in Spain, but we will have to wait for some official confirmation soon. What do you think about these models of the firm?
