LG’s latest offering in India is the X cam, a smartphone that comes with a dual camera setup at an affordable price point. The LG X cam shares the 120-degree wide angle lens with the G5 alongside the standard primary lens. LG has priced the X cam at Rs 19,990 and will be available across retail stores in India.
The X cam is equipped with a 5.2-inch FHD display and is powered by a 1.14GHz octa-core powerhouse paired with a meagre 2GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers 16GB of onboard storage and a microSD card slot that can accommodate up to 256GB. The LG X cam comes with brushed aluminium finish and it seemingly shares some of its design lines with the LG G5.
The imaging setup consists of the 13-Megapixel dual camera (13MP Standard Lens+5MP Wide Angle Lens) primary sensor and an 8-Megapixel secondary sensor. The dual camera setup means that the device will have a much wider field of view and will capture 53 percent more area than the usual camera setup in the smartphones. Also, the Pop-out feature combines the image captured by both the lens and creates a picture in a frame effect. Naturally, with the dual camera setup, capturing the Panorama pictures is much easier.
The X cam runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and is backed by a 2,520mAh battery pack. LG X Cam comes with the usual array of connectivity features including 4G LTE.
