LG has released a few new additions to their midrange portfolio. First, we saw the LG Q Stylus series, the Style 4, and now, we have the LG X5 2018.
This new device is a follow-up to the last year’s model, but with significantly upgraded hardware especially in the processor and battery department.
The LG X5 2018 sports a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor, which has twice as much cores from the previous quad-core chipset. It also comes with a really large 4,500mAh battery to power it up.
The processor is supported by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Meanwhile. the display size is 5.5-inches with an HD resolution. This device might be trapped from the past as it is equipped with the old-school 16:9 aspect ratio instead of 18:9. LG X5 2018 also comes with a 5-megapixel front and 13-megapixel rear cameras.
