LG Unveils Budget LG K40 With Military-grade Durability

LG K40 is the freshest smartphone to join the LG budget family. Know more about the phone's specs, price and where to buy.

Undoubtedly, LG is one of the masters in the tech ecosystem. Their smartphone prowess is one that has stood the test of time. With smartphone lineups running across entry-level, mid-range and flagship, they haven’t stopped in their building of a smartphone empire. LG K40 is the freshest smartphone to join the LG budget family.

As the article’s title suggests, the phone is equipped with military-grade certification that grants it durability even if it falls. The accreditation is precisely known as the MIL-STD-810G. It is famously found in LG flagships like G7 ThinQ and Q9. Having it in a budget device is quite entertaining.

More details will follow after the cut.

LG K40 Quick Review

Take away this MIL-STD-810G mentioned above, almost every other thing on the smartphone falls within budget specifications. In its outlook, you get the bezel-less design that features minimal bezels at the top and bottom. Given current “notchy” standards, bezel-less designs like this have been sentenced to budget categories.

Notwithstanding, selfie camera LED flash, earpiece and a couple of sleek sensors are positioned on the top bezel. Turning to the back, the slightly protruded camera module and fingerprint reader are placed above each other horizontally. The LG emblem is the only occupant of the base region.

Surprisingly, users are blessed with 5.7 inches IPS LCD screen and 18:9 aspect ratio for enough screen estate. An HD+ resolution of 720 x 1440 pixels resolution clarifies the display’s output. It is assisted by a pixel density of 282PPI.

The main dictators of its performance are Octa-core 2.0GHz CPU and 2GB RAM. They work hand in hand to ensure seamless running of simultaneous apps on the device. Even at its price point, a 32GB storage is available to save files. Using a MicroSD card, the room can be increased to 512GB. There’s the gift of the latest Android Pie as the phone’s OS while duration was left in the hands of a 3,000mAh battery.
