LG has expanded the X series with the X5 and the X Skin but only for South Korea.
However, it is expected that the two phones will soon be available for a bigger rollout in other markets within a month or two.
Both these phones are similar to the LG X released previously. However, there is a difference in the battery size and its capacity. The two phones have been officially announced and circulated in the company’s hometown, Korea, at a price of $173 for the X5 and $199 for the X Skin.

Basic Specs of LG X Skin

A quad core processor of 1.3 GH, combined with a RAM of 1.5 GB and an internal memory of 16 GB. However, the battery is quite small, being powered at 2100 mAh. The rear camera also has a smaller resolution of 8 MP and the front camera has a resolution of 5 MP. The battery is removable. This device also offers 4G LTE connectivity as well as NFC.
Both the phones run on Android 6.0, Marshmallow OS.
No Unique Features
The two phones are entry level devices and do not boast of any unique feature. However, the company has attempted to differentiate the phones from the others in the software specifications. The display of the X5 is a unique selling feature whereas the X Skin has a slim design to its credit.
The G5 had sported a very lack luster sale, so it is not very surprising that the company is trying to push more reasonably priced, mid range devices. LG is probably trying to make some profits here with a mid range phone.
