LG K12+ launched with HD+ display, 3GB RAM, and Helio P22 SoC

LG has launched LG K12+, a rebranded version of last month’s launch, the LG K40, in Brazil today. The new smartphone, though low-spec’d, comes with some highlighting features like AI enhanced software and premium Audio, which are usually part of the LG’s premium range of smartphones.

In terms of specs, the LG K12+ flaunts a 5.7-inch HD+ (1440×720) TFT display with 18:9 aspect ratio but, interestingly, without an up-front notch, which has, otherwise, been on trend in 2019.

Under the hood, a 12nm MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core SoC clubbed with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage runs the show. The storage is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card.

So far as the camera is concerned, the LG K12+ doesn’t sport dual or triple-camera setup. Rather it mounts a single 16MP camera on the rear with f/2.2 aperture, HDR, PDAF and LED flash. Up front, it hosts an 8MP selfie camera with LED flash and Portrait Mode capability. Both the cameras are laced with AI features and capable of recording 1080p videos at 30fps.

The LG K12+ boots Android 8.1 Oreo-based LG UX UI on the software side, while the fuel for running the smartphone is supplied by a 3,000mAh battery that supports 10W fast charging via micro USB port. Other connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, and 3.5mm audio jack.

The left edge of the device is lined with a power button, volume rockers, and an additional Google Assistant hardware key. A circular fingerprint scanner is positioned at the back. The smartphone also comes with DTS:X 3D Surround Sound support for headphones. Last but not least, the LG K12+ is pretty durable as it is MIL-STD 810G certified. IP certification is not known though.

The smartphone is offered in Black, Blue, and Platinum color options. From the price point of view, the K12+ costs BRL1,199 (Approx. INR21,200, which, as we reckon, is slightly on the higher side considering that the smartphone lacks in some key in-vogue features such as a notch on the front and dual or triple cameras at the back.

So far, there has been no hint ascribing to its launch in the Indian market. Hope, information in this regard emerges soon.
