With the premium, groundbreaking but perhaps too costly and gimmicky G5 apparently not doing quite as well as expected at the global box-office, LG is back at throwing everything it has against the wall to see what sticks.

We’ve started to lose count of all the recent additions to the non-flagship X family, as the LG X5 and X skin today follow the suit of the X mach, style and max a few weeks ago. Not to mention the LG X power first broke cover in mid-June, finally getting a full spec sheet and official Korean price tag now.

At 200,000 won ($175), the big-battery 5.3-incher offers arguably the best bang for buck of the three just-announced phones, with HD screen resolution, quad-core processing power, 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable storage, 13 and 5MP cameras, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a 7.9mm waist, and above all, 4,100 mAh juice in tow.

Meanwhile, the LG X5 downgrades cell capacity to 2,800 mAh, stretches the 720p display to 5.5 inches, shaves 0.7 mm off the profile, and retains all the other features at an identical $175 price.

Lastly, the LG X skin will inexplicably cost KRW 231,000 ($200), standing out as the lightest, slimmest model of the bunch, but merely sporting a 5-inch HD panel, 8MP rear cam, 1.5GB RAM, and 2,100 mAh battery.
