LG has extended its budget smartphone lineup in India with the launch of the 2017 edition of LG K10 which was originally announced back in December. The “Made in India” handset features a dedicated panic button, pressing which will dial up the national emergency number, 112. The LG K10 will be available at a price of Rs 13,990 via retail stores from Thursday, February 23.
As far as specifications are concerned, the LG K10 comes with a 5.3-inch 720p IPS panel with curved glass up front and flaunts a metallic U-frame which measures only 7.9mm in thickness. Underneath, it is powered by a MediaTek MT6750 Octa-Core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, Mali T860 GPU for graphics, SD card support up to 2TB, 16GB of onboard storage, 2800mAh removable battery, and a mediocre 2GB of RAM.
LG has managed to include Android Nougat with, of course, their own custom skin running on top of it. The camera arrangement features a rear 13MP shooter with a single LED flash and a front 5MP (120-degree) wide-angle lens. There’s also a fingerprint sensor on the back, and the phone has support for 4G LTE, Dual-SIM, VoLTE, and NFC too.
The LG K10 comes in three color variants – Black, Titanium and Gold. Priced at Rs 13,990, it will be available for purchase in retail stores starting from February 23, and on online e-commerce portals, from Sunday, February 26. Furthermore, LG will be bundling a complimentary smart cover and a Hungama subscription unlimited audio and video downloads of 45 days.
LG is also expected to bring the other products under the K series they unveiled a few months ago including the K8, K4, and K3. However, considering how aggressively this one’s priced, we’re sure it won’t have any positive impact on their position in the Indian market. The K10 itself will be facing stiff competition from Xiaomi or Lenovo who are offering significantly better hardware at roughly the same costs.
