LG went ahead and spoiled the surprise. At least on their part.
The Korean company just announced that it is launching five new smartphones at the 2017 version of the Consumer Electronics Show or CES.
The CES 2017, an annual gathering of numerous technology brands, experts, and their products, will be held from Jan. 3 to 8 next year. But this early, LG decided it would be better to just spill the beans on their own announcements.
With five new handsets, one would think that LG went all out but a quick look at the devices may leave some a bit disappointed.
For one, consumers have been clamoring for 4K smartphones. LG came up with for mid-range K Series phones along with the latest LG Stylus.
