LG Adds 4 New Smartphones to its X Series



X Mach, X Power, X Style and X Max are the latest smartphones to be announced by LG. The four devices join the X Cam and X Screen smartphones announced earlier in the year.

Thanks to a leak, we have known all along that LG was working on the four smartphones. Like the X Cam and X Screen whose names suggest focus on the camera and display respectively, the X Mach, X Power, X Style and X Max names define the standout features of the four devices.

The LG X Power, for instance, packs a big 4,100mAh battery and supports super fast charging technology. The X Mach’s strength is in the superior internals like a 1.8GHz processor, a QHD IPS Quantum display and a better camera. The Max and the Style, like their names suggest, have their size and design respectively to stand out. Not much has been revealed about the LG Max at this time, though.
