The new LG K20 and LG K30 land with a design very similar to the one we already saw in the LG K40, although here we find much more visible frames, both on the sides and, above all, on the lower chin.

While the first comes with a FullVision TFT screen of 5.45 inch With a resolution of 480 x 960 pixels and an 18: 9 aspect ratio, the older brother does it with an IPS FullVision with the same diagonal and ratio, although raising the resolution to 1440 x 720 pixels.

LG K40, analysis: artificial intelligence to differentiate itself in the input range

Turning it over, we found some minor differences related to the location of the camera module. Thus, in the LG K20 it is in a vertical position in the upper left corner to shelter the lens and the LED flash, while in the LG K30 it passes to the central axis of the phone in the same position. In both cases they arrive in two colors, Aurora Black (black) and Moroccan Blue (blue).

In the photographic section, the phones have a simple configuration, typical of the range in which they are found. Thus, we find a 8 MP rear camera with up to 4x digital zoom, autofocus and HDR, while the front has a 5 MP sensor with facial recognition.

Of course, the cameras of the LG K30 come vitaminized with interesting additions such as the possibility of taking up to 20 photos to create animated GIFs or take clearer photos even at night by combining several shots, while on the front we find the bokeh effect and virtual flash
for brighter shots.
