Last month, LG expanded its range of K series smartphones by launching three new devices – the LG K41S, K51S, and K61. All of these smartphones were budget offerings with quad cameras and MIL-STD 81G-grade durability. Before these launches, the South Korean brand trademarked several model names including K41, K42, K43, K51, K52 and K53, which were spotted in January. Now, Pricebaba has spotted one of these trademarked smartphones on the website of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the US. The listing reveals the battery information along with the LG UI on the smartphone.
The FCC listing has revealed several variations of a single model number viz. LM-K510BMW, LMK510BMW, K510BMW, LM-K510HM, LMK510HM, K510HM. However, the model number corresponds to the LG K51. Unfortunately, the listing doesn’t reveal much else except for the battery capacity, which is 4,000mAh. The smartphone was also spotted on the GCF (Global Certification Forum) certification website in January revealing that it will support 4G LTE bands and will boot Android 9 Pie out of the box. As of now, there is no further information available regarding the smartphone.
To recap on the LG K51S, the smartphone comes with a 6.5-inch HD+ FullVision display. The performance of the handset is handled by a 2.3GHz octa-core processor, which is further backed by 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. In the imaging department, the handset features a 32MP primary camera on the back, accompanied by a 5MP wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro snapper, and a 2MP depth sensor. For selfies and video calling, the handset offers a 13MP shooter in the punch-hole cutout on the front. Other features of the smartphone include DTS:X 3D surround sound, a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and dedicated Google Assistant button.
We can expect the LG K51 to be a toned-down variant of the LG K51S, however, we suggest taking this bit of information with a pinch of salt.
