CES 2017 | First IP68 certified LG X smartphone might show up at CES

LG V20 premium Android handset to get a worthy successor in January 2017

One of the several new handsets that LG is expected to unveil during next month's event in Las Vegas is said to be X Caliber, the company's first IP68 certified smartphone to join the X family.

January will be a very busy month for most major brands currently struggling for a piece of the smartphone market, especially since Samsung's failed Note 7 managed to create a gap that needs to be filled. However, the upcoming LG X Caliber is expected to target the mid-range area of the market, but it is always great to see premium features added to affordable handsets. 

For now, nothing is official yet, but what we know is that the X family of devices by LG consists of affordable handsets that usually do not offer anything impressive. Fortunately, it seems that handset apparently known as X Caliber will bring IP68-certified resistance to this area of the market. Even more, it is also expected to come with durability increased to pass military tests, as well as a generous 4,100 mAh battery.

Next to the X Caliber, the X lineup is also expected to be joined by the X Power 2, a handset with a 5.3-inch HD display and a 13 MP wide-angle main image snapper on the back. LG should also add a few new models to the K lineup, as well as at least one new smartphone with stylus support.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
