LG company unveiled Today three new W-series smartphones, W11, W31, and W31+. These three devices for people looking for affordable phones. All new smartphones share plenty of hardware similarities like 6.52-inch IPS LCDs, Helio P22 chipsets and 4,000 mAh batteries.

The 6.52-inch LCD on all three phones packs HD+ resolution and waterdrop notch up top for the 8MP selfie cam. The back of the W11 houses a 13MP primary shooter alongside a 2MP depth sensor while the W31 and its plus counterpart also get a 5MP ultrawide module.

On other hand, all three phones come with a headphone jack. The W31 and W31+ also pack a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner. The LG W11 will retail ($128) and comes in a single 3/32GB configuration. The W31 with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage goes for ($148) while the W31+ costs ($162).

Earlier, the firm launced on May LG K61 , according to the firm, LG K61 sports a 6.5-inch FHD+ FullVision display with a hole-punch cutout and a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by an unnamed octa-core processor running at 2.3GHz, paired with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of expandable storage.

The quad-camera array on the back of the phone houses a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 2MP macro lens, and a 5MP depth sensor.

Some of the other key highlights of the LG K61 include a 4,000mAh battery, MIL-STD-810G compliance, and a dedicated Google Assistant button.

Noteworthy, in 2019 LG announcement at the annual technology convention in Berlin, that it may debut a phone with three screens. It demonstrated how that additional display could be used to extend one app across two screens or run two separate apps.

It looks very similar to the Dual Screen case LG introduced for its V50 ThinQ phone, which as its name implies adds a second screen to the device. In its video introducing the Dual Screen case for the V50.

What the device almost certainly won’t be is a foldable, which is a product category that LG has steered away from despite preparing to launch its rollable OLED TV this year. Instead of a folding screen.

Both the V50 ThinQ’s accessory and this new unannounced device appear to feature two separate screens which are attached by a hinge, and which do not bend like the displays on the Samsung Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X.
