Specs-wise, the LG K31 packs a 5.7-inch LCD screen with an HD+ resolution of 1520 x 720 pixels. The display has a notch at the top which houses a 5-megapixel selfie camera. A huge chin is at the bottom of the panel and it has an 18.9:9 aspect ratio.
At the back, there’s a dual camera setup consisting of a 13-megapixel main camera with PDAF and a 5-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera with a field of view (FoV) around 120°. The rear cameras are aligned horizontally.
The LG K31 is powered by the octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 chip paired with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of memory expandable via microSD. The device runs LG’s UX 9.1 based on Android 10.
To keep the lights on, there’s a 3,000 mAh battery which charges over the usual microUSB standard. Other significant features are the rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, dedicated Google Assistant button on the left-hand side, and headphone jack.
