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.

  • 5.3″ HD (1280×720) resolution LCD Display
  • Mediatek MT6750 SoC
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB on-board storage (with microSD card slot
  • 13MP Rear Camera with LED Flash
  • 8MP Front facing camera
  • WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS (A-GPS, Glonass)
  • 4G: B1,B3,B5,B7,B8,B28,B38 (DL only), B40
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • Android 7.1.2
  • 148.7×75.3×8.7 mm @ 163g

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.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Off topic. Why do some ‘Ausdroid Readers’ and ‘Guests’ get funky new icons but others still the grey silhouette?

or am I missing something blindingly obvious?

It’s showing on my screen. Must be something unusual going on. You’re a little green monster with Medusa-esque hair.

Ha ha . . ‘Medusa-esque’ – I like that. Right now, on my screen, Jeni Skunk and I are grey silhouettes, your profile pic is showing, and everybody else in this discussion is a cute monster. Curious.

For some reason, once you’ve posted something, when you reload the page, you lose whatever monster Gravatar was assigned to you, on your post.
Mine is a square bright slime green critter, with multiple stick like legs, bat like wings, and a round red toothy maw. Looks really cute, I think.

Android 7.1.2.
Google needs to step up to the plate and make it clear to device manufacturers that to be allowed GApps, devices MUST be running the LATEST version of Android at release.

Horrible specifications for the price. I’m not sure what LG is thinking.

As others have said there are much better phones for the price.

Just wish LG would hurry up and release the G7 One over here!

Why would anyone get this over the Nokia 6.1??
These specs are sub $150 specs 🙁
