LG is all set to launch its new smartphones under the W-series in India on June 26. The company has already sent media invites for its upcoming launch to be held in New Delhi at 11.30am on the said date. Here’s what we know so far about the upcoming launches tomorrow.
The company will be launching three smartphones under the upcoming new W-series. One of them is confirmed to be called the LG W10, which we have already seen in leaks before. Now, today Amazon India has also confirmed yet another device in the series which will be launched as LG W30. All the three smartphones will be priced under Rs 15,000 in India as per our sources.
Amazon has listed the Aurora Green colour variant of the LG W30 and it will go on sale in India on July 15 during the Amazon Prime Day Sale. The sale will start from July 15 to July 16. However, the Prime Day sale will be on July 15 for Amazon Prime members only. The LGW30 on Amazon also comes with a Notify me option for those interested in buying the smartphone. The other colour variants of the device will be Black and Gradient Blue.
Sadly, the Amazon listing does not reveal any specs of the LG W30 smartphone but it confirms that the phone will feature a waterdrop notch display. The description of the phone on Amazon reads, “Notches that you can customise on display for your everyday moods” which reveals that the notch can be customised as per users interest.
It will also be equipped with triple rear camera setup, which will offer Portrait photos, Bokeh shots, Night Mode imaging, and more. The phone also has a fingerprint sensor on the back, as per Amazon listing.
Earlier the keyspecifications and the design of the LG W10 surfaced online via Android Enterprise listing. The listing revealed that the phone will have a waterdrop notch above the screen, slim bezels on the sides, and a relatively thicker chin. The power button seems to be placed on the right, while the volume rocker is placed on the left.
LG W10 will come with a 6.2-inch display of unknown resolution. It will have 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in storage. It will also run Android 9 Pie out of the box. The phone will feature a fingerprint scanner but it is said that it doesn’t have NFC. The phone is expected to be powered by a 4,000mAh battery with support for fast charging and it will likely to be powered by a Helio P60 or Snapdragon 439 chipset.
An earlier live image of the phone revealed that the phone will have a triple camera setup which will be vertically aligned with LED flash below it. There will be a fingerprint scanner and LG branding as well on the back. The right side of the phone will have a volume rocker and power button. The phone will also have antenna lines on the sides. The bottom will have a speaker grille and a charging port.
The newW-series phones will be available exclusively on Amazon India upon its launch in India. The Amazon teaser confirmed that the new LG W-series smartphones will have a ‘pocket-worthy price tag’ indicating it would be a budget segment phone. The device will target to rival Samsung, Xiaomi and Realme phones which sells the most under the Rs 10,000 and Rs 15,000 mark.
