As part of the debut of the two newly launched smartphones from South Korean electronics company LG, the new LG K10 is now available for purchase in the company’s home South Korean market.

LG announced the first of the two devices during the Consumer Electronic Show 2016 in Los Angeles, the K10 smartphone. It is now available in South Korea. The device is available for price of KRW 200,000 or at least around $165. International price for the device is unknown at the moment since LG has not yet revealed the list of international markets where the smartphone will be available.

“Our 2016 K Series is the latest example of LG applying it best mobile technology and premium design philosophy across numerous smartphone categories,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “Customers equate the LG name with great smartphone imaging technology and we are committed to delivering on that flattering expectation.”

The device has an LTE and a 3G variant. Moreover, it sports a 5.3-inch In-cell Touch display with a 720p HD resolution. The LTE variant runs under a quad-core processor with a CPU clocking in at 1.2 GHz speed. It smeasures 146.6 mm tall, 74.8 mm wide, and is 8.8 mm thick.

As for the camera, the K10 smartphone sports a 13-megapixel main rear camera and a 5-megapixel front facing snapper for selfies and other similar purposes. One of the highlights of the camera features of the device is LG’s Gesture Shot and Gesture Interval Shot, features that make selfies with the front camera easier than ever before. With the Gesture Shot, a simple clench of a fist in front of the camera will have the device automatically take a shot. On the other hand, the Gesture Interval Shot will activate by making two fist clenches. The device will then take four consecutive shots.
