CES has always been a big trade show for everything electronic but it has never been a place for smartphones and tablet, not high end devices to say. To stay true to this mantra, LG is launching a new LG K series smartphone lineup which has a mid-range price paired flagship features.

Software features like Gesture Shot, Gesture Interval Shot and Tap and Shoot which were previously only available on LG's flagship devices will be available on the new LG K10 and LG K7. In terms of design, both the LG K10 and LG K7 will be the first to incorporate LG's new glossy pebble design language (sounds like something straight out of Samsung) and a 2.5D arc cover glass to create that unibody look and feel.

In terms of the actual hardware, both devices are powered by a quad core processor, LTE and 3G versions, 8 and 13MP cameras and the signature rear button placement of LG devices. Both the LG K7 and LG K10 will be available later this year and CES 2016 visitors can check out the device in person at LG's booth in Hall #8204 of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6-9.
