You can probably guess what's remarkable about the X cam and X screen.

We still haven't seen all of LG's next premium phone, the G5, but tonight it's unveiling two interesting midrange handsets. Dubbed the Specialist X Series, the X cam and X screen are both fairly basic phones with Android Marshmallow 6.0, quad-core CPUs, 2GB of RAM and a smallish 16GB of storage for what we assume will be a reasonable price. As you can probably guess, each one then brings a extra...special feature.

The X cam has a dual 13MP / 5MP rear camera setup to go with a curved finish up front, while the X screen steals its small always-on second-screen display feature from the V10, with a 1.76-inch screen that displays notifications, battery life and other info. We're learn more about these phones in a week at Mobile World Congress 2016, and LG says they're coming to certain Asia, Europe and Latin America markets next month.
