LG is announcing three smartphones, a premium Bluetooth wireless headset and a smartphone case for a phone that it hasn't yet confirmed on Feb. 21, just before Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The LG Stylus 2, which is the sequel to the LG G4 Stylus phone, features a 5.7-inch HD display and a built-in pen that allows users to "write" on the display to input data. The all-new X cam and X screen smartphones, which are the first of the company's X series phones, are built for users who want a great camera or advanced display without other unneeded features. The X cam has dual rear cameras, while the X screen model has an always-on second display, similar to the one found on LG's V10 premium smartphone. The second screen sits above the phone's main 4.93-inch HD display and offers quick access to apps and other functions. The upcoming Tone Platinum Bluetooth headset features an aptX HD Audio Codec to deliver CD-quality audio, while a new Quick Cover case for the rumored LG G5 smartphone lets users take calls without opening the case. Peruse this slide show to find out more details.
