Earlier this year, LG launched the LG K40 mid-range smartphone. Today, the same LG K4o is introduced as LG K12+ in Brazil.

The LG K12+ will come equipped with AI-based features and premium audio option. The LG K12+ comes with DTS:X 3D Surround Sound support which comes out handy while using headphones.
