LG X5 sports a 5.5-inch (720×1280 pixels) HD IPS display and is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. The internal storage is around 16GB, which can be expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card. The handset runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box.

On the other hand, the X-Style, also known as X-Skin is also released in S. Korea. It bears similar features housed in X5, but differs in a few specifications. Unlike 5.5-inch display of X5, LG X-Style features a 5-inch (720×1280 pixels) HD IPS display and packs 1.5GB of RAM. The rear camera is that of 8MP with LED flash and is backed by a 2100mAh battery.
