LG's X series touches down, complete with unique camera features

LG has begun the global rollout of its new smartphone lineup - the X series. The phones are kitted out with the premium features that, until now, were only available on LG’s flagship models.

The X series includes unique features such as Dual Cameras and Second Screen. Like the LG G5, the X cam inherits a similar 120-degree wide angle lens to complement the standard lens. The 13MP standard angle lens and the 5MP wide angle camera on the rear of the X cam delivers as wide a field of view as the human eye, according to LG.

The X cam offers Pop-out Picture feature which combines the two images taken with the standard and wide angle lenses to create a picture-in-a-frame effect. Available only on the X cam, Animated Photo delivers a hybrid video and still photo, one framed by the other. On top of this, Panorama View automatically scrolls a wide image instead of a static image and the Signature feature allows users to add a caption or byline after taking a photo.

The X screen comes with LG’s Second Screen, a feature which was first introduced in the LG V10. The Always-on Display allows users to check basic information such as time, date and notifications without having to wake up the phone, the first mid-tier smartphone to offer this unique feature. The X screen’s look is complemented by the crystal-clear glass fiber material that covers the back. The curved edges on its sides create a simple yet elegant design.

“What’s appealing about the X screen and X cam is that each offers one great feature in a complete package that doesn’t break the bank,” says Juno Cho, LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company president and CEO.

“Starting with the X series, we’re introducing the best in camera and display technology in a mass-tier device, something that has never been done before,” Cho says.
