With some brilliant new flagship phones being launched, some of the most powerful phones have shed prices faster than they would otherwise have, making them very good buys.
There is a new ad on TV these days: where a guy says that he is waiting for the next phone to be launched in a couple of months so that he can buy the current one at a much cheaper price. Though the other guy ridicules him, it's not really a bad idea.
In these days of hyper-competition you get a smartphone that was launched at Rs 34,000; at Rs 27,000 about two months after its launch, and even by today's standards, the device remains fairly new. Here are some devices that have gone through such price cuts.
LG Optimus 4X HD
Launched in July for Rs 34,000 and now available for just Rs 27,000, this despite the fact that the phone is very close to Samsung Galaxy SIII in terms of specs, which continues to sell for Rs 35,000.
LG Optimus 4X HD is the flagship model from LG which comes with a 4.7 inch True HD IPS panel touchscreen display with 1280 x 720 pixel native resolution.
Optimus 4X HD houses a quad core 1.5 GHz Nvidia Tegra processor with a low power GeForce graphics chip. For smoother operation of Android 4.0 ICS with Optimus 3.0 UI on it, LG has used 1 GB of RAM. By default, this smartphone features 16 GB onboard storage and a micro SD card slot to accommodate a memory card of up to 64 GB. This smartphone is only 8.9 mm thick and weighs just 133 grams.
In this device, LG has used an 8 megapixel autofocus camera with LED flash. This camera is capable of recording 1080p HD videos at 30 frames per second. There's also a 1.3 megapixel front facing camera for video calling and chat. Other features include GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, accelerometer, gyroscope sensor, support for a variety of popular audio-video formats, stereo FM with RDS, WiFi Direct, and DLNA compliance.
LG has added a 2150 mAh battery to the Optimus 4X HD to make it run longer and support talk time of about 9.5 hours over 3G.
Microsoft has partnered with likes of Dell, Lenovo, Acer, ASUS and HP to make affordable VR headsets that interestingly are capable of mixed reality.
The batteries, if commercially developed, would have five times the energy density of the lithium-ion batteries used in smartphones.
All the accessories are already up for pre-order and will start shipping on November 10th.
