review of the LG K40: First look

LG G8, LG G8S and LG V50, perhaps, attracted more attention at MWC 2019, but the the exhibition the company showed a number of other phones, including a new collection of low-cost devices.

LG K40 — the cheapest gadget from the line, which, not surprisingly, is the successor to LG K30, released in 2018.

Цена на новый телефон от LG будет составлять примерно треть (or меньше) стоимости plamenov , and, although the specifications are not so impressive, LG K40 offers quite a range of options and functions.

The release date and the price

Some items LG K40 is not yet public information, including the price and the release date. The phone will certainly go on sale in the US market, as it did with the latest generation device. As for the rest of the markets targeted by the company, information yet.

LG has not yet announced how much it will cost phone, but we can't imagine that the price of the device will be much more than LG K30, which started from $ 200. But, of course, this is all conjecture, and the company can certainly increase the value of LG K40, so we will follow the news and keep you informed.

Design and display

LG K40 comes in a full metal one-piece housing, and we think that at the moment the smartphone is available in only one color – blue, which you can see in the above photos.

In the future, LG may decide to include more colors but the the exhibition was the only one, the blue version of the phone. It is an attractive color, and although the phone does not feel high quality, it fits comfortably in the hand.

the Model is not to compare with products such as Moto G7, although with glass back cover and rounded edges, with a thickness of 8.3 mm, it will fit easily in your pocket.

At the back of the phone is set to fingerprint, which is quite easy to get when you hold the device in their hands. You can find it a bit annoying when you put the phone on the table, but in this case you can use the power button other ways to unlock the screen.

The screen in the LG K40 — 5.7-inch IPS with a resolution of 720 x 1440 (HD +). This equals to 282 pixels per inch which is not as good as some other phones in this price range. Also pay attention to aspect ratio 18:9, which makes the smartphone more modern than some of the other budget devices that do not follow the trend to a more elongated and narrow screens.

The phone is charging through the microUSB port at the bottom, while the side panels are also placed headphone Jack: 3.5 mm.

Operating system and features

LG offers software Android 9 Pie right out of the box, and it will go with a shell from LG, which will be slightly different from the UI of other Android manufacturers.

With regard to the characteristics, K40 has a dual-core processor with a clock frequency of 2 GHz, but we have yet to know the exact model of the chipset. The smartphone is powerful and will allow you to open different apps.

By default, the phone has 32 GB of internal storage and 2 GB of RAM, which is pretty good, but if you're used to more expensive devices, this model may not be fast enough for you.

the Battery and the camera

In the K40 installed battery capacity of 3000 mAh, and given that it is not the most powerful phone on the market, it should be enough a single charge for the day.

unfortunately, the device does not support functions such as fast charging or adaptive, which is not surprising considering its price.

The back is a 16 MP camera. She, of course, will not surprise you, but if you want to make a new snapshot for social networking, then the device will easily cope with this.

As for the front camera, the smartphone is equipped with 8-megapixel module that has not yet been able to test.

Early verdict

If the price of the LG K40 will be the one we expected, then the device can become quite a good budget phone.

The problem is that the Moto line G7 is already out, and this series for a fairly low price has some more impressive features than LG K40.
