While there’s no sign of the LG V40 handset launching in Australia, LG is seemingly concentrating more on the budget and mid-range market with their K-series handsets. The latest to arrive is the LG K11+, which is about to launch in Australia.
Priced at $360, the phone is available in only a single colour: Aurora Black. The phone features a metal rear back with a fingerprint sensor included and a sleek design which is powered by a Mediatek MT6750 processor, 3GB of RAM and comes with 32GB of on-board storage (with microSD card support).
LG has included a 13MP rear camera sensor on the rear which includes PDAF (Phase Detection Auto Focus) allowing for high-speed Autofocus keeping moving objects in focus and an 8MP front-facing camera for selfies with a selfie mode built-in.
For a budget end device, the phone also includes support for DTS: X Surround sound, so when paired with the 5.3″ HD resolution display it should allow for some pretty decent media viewing on the go.

There are some red flags we’d like to draw your attention to, the K11+ has no NFC which means no Tap & Pay support and it’s launching with Android 7.1.2, which given LG’s lack of updates for their low to mid-range phones means you’ll likely never see Oreo or any other updates – though we’d love to be proven wrong.
The LG website doesn’t yet list which retailers you’ll find the K11+ being sold at as yet, but it should show up sooner or later if you want to get one.
