LG Electronics (LG) will release the latest versions of its K8 and K10 smartphones at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.

The 2018 editions of the mass market smartphones include advanced camera features, while retaining the signature pebble design with 2.5D Arc Glass. Three new colours, Aurora Black, Moroccan Blue, and Terra Gold, have been introduced for 2018

Both models will roll out globally in key regions such as Europe, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East.

The LG K10 has a metal U frame, with premium features including 13MP rear, 8MP front camera, 5.3 inch screen, Android 7.1.2 Nougat, and Smart Rear Key with fingerprint access.

The updated LG K8 delivers more advanced camera UX features, including features for low-light photography. Auto Shot, Gesture Shot, Flash for Selfie and Quick Share are carried over to the new K8 by popular demand.

Clearer photographs in dim environments is made possible in both the K8 and K10 with the new Low Light Noise Reduction feature. Combined with High Dynamic Range (HDR), photos come out sharper with more luminosity and contrast levels.

Taking group photos with friends or family is easier than ever thanks to the new Timer Helper feature. No longer is it necessary to guess how many seconds until the timer triggers the shutter. With Timer Helper, the K8 and K10 will help keep count using the flash as a visual aid so friends and family can be in the exact position at the right time.

Another new feature of the K Series camera is Flash Jump Shot, which snaps a photo every three seconds (up to 20 photos) and stitches the images together into a fun GIF for easy sharing. Flash Jump Shot is available on both the K8 and K10 and can be used with either the front or rear cameras.

"LG's 2018 K Series range of smartphones is focused on delivering even more value to consumers looking for the right device that fits their lifestyle and needs," said Ha Jeung-uk, senior vice president and business unit leader for LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "We're confident we can capture the hearts and minds of consumers in the fast-moving market with our smartphone camera technology and other convenient features."
