LG U, a New Mid-Range to Try to Boost Sales of Koreans

LG has not just of find the key to tracing in sales After a difficult year. LG G5 has not helped to return to the Korean company to the Top 5 of world manufacturers and now, after the last presentation of figures, they seem to trust him all the LG V20 in the high range in the absence of a more efficient development. Maybe LG G6 which, according to the latest news, will leave behind the system modular to be a comprehensive smartphone.

Meanwhile, middle and lower ranges of the company continue strengthening, although they are apparently locally as in the case of the new LG U. The Korean manufacturer returns to bet for a smartphone with a simple but attractive design and specifications that should tie it at a competitive price. Let’s see what has to offer us the new LG U.


The new LG smartphone arrives wearing middle-range specifications running 6.0 Android Marshmallow with the proprietary coating of LG which, incidentally, is not very aggressive. We assume that your processor, a MediaTek 6753 of eight cores to 1, 14GHz, accompanied by 2 and 32 GB RAM and internal memory, will get a fluid performance because its configuration is very similar to the of the LG X Cam, his brother international.

On the screen we have a panel IPS LCD with FullHD resolution and 5.2-inch diagonal. That leaves us 1920 x 1080 pixels and 424 pixels per inch in terms of density, a figure well known in the middle range Android. We continue with numbers, this time relating to the multimedia equipment as cameras we will have 13 megapixel camera on the back and with LED flash and 8-megapixel camera on the front.

We close the specifications of the LG U mentioning the presence of a battery, apparently not removable, of 3,000 mAh inlaid in a body of 147,6 x 73.2 x 7.7 mm and weighing 135 grams. It will come in black, white and pink.
