LG will be taking the wraps off two new K series handsets at the upcoming IFA 2019 (September 6-11, 2019) in Berlin, Germany, as part of its continuing presence in the budget smartphone segment. While the K50S and K40S, as they are called, are “attractively-priced smartphones” (read: budget phones) they are not slouch in the specs department, well, at least not in the imaging department.

LG K50S and K40S Smartphones IFA 2019

The LG K50S, which is clearly the “top-ranger” of the two will feature a tri-camera setup consisting of a 13 MP shooter with PDAF, a 5 MP with super wide-angle lens and a 2 MP lens with depth sensor. The latter is, as we are accustomed by now, for creating super cool portrait shots. LG K40S, on the other hand, has a dual camera set up, comprising of a 13 MP lens with PDAF and a super wide-angle lens-equipped 5 MP sensor.
