The LG X Cam and X Screen smartphones

However while the company works on all that, they have released two new phones - the LG X Cam and the LG X Screen.

Other features include a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, and a 2,300mAh battery.

LG said the X Cam will come with two cameras on the front, and another on the back to provide specialized photo-related features. The LG X screen's display is smaller than the X cam's at 4.93-inches, and only features a 720p panel.

LG today showed off another new handset ahead of Mobile World Congress, the Stylus 2, a second act for last year's G4 Stylus. Not to mention that users will be able to check time, date, battery status and other notifications on the second screen without having to turn on the phone. Visitors to MWC can see the new X series for themselves at LG's booth in Hall 3 of Fira Gran Via from February 22-25. It has an 8-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies and video chat, and on the backside are two more cameras, one that's 13 megapixels and another that's 5 megapixels.

That variation on LG's G4 lost the vanilla version's top-notch camera, but bumped the screen size up from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches, and included a stylus for note taking and doodles. The LG X Screen, well, you get the idea. It runs on the latest Android OS, Marshmallow. Android 6.0 Marshmallow is installed, there's a 1.2GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage space, a 2300mAh battery, and the phone measures 7.1mm thick.

The X screen is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core chipset and 2 GB of RAM. The X series will make its debut in markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America starting next month, though there's no word as to whether the handsets will make it to North American stores.

The LG G5 is confirmed to be coming with an "Always On" display too after the company uploaded a GIF on its Facebook page presenting the feature and there are also rumours claiming it will have a secondary display. The phone comes in Titan Silver, White, Gold and Pink Gold color options.

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! It is also created to be held comfortably through a unique design, with the sides being as thin as 5.2 millimeters.
