LG Launches Entry Level W-Series Smartphones
LG, under its new W-series, has launched three entry-level smartphones in India.
The phones are called W10, W30, and W30 Pro and will sport AI cameras with features like Night Mode, Portrait, Bokeh, and Wide-Angle modes along with an HD+ display. All the phones will be fueled by a reasonably sized battery.
Design wise, the smartphone does not feature anything exciting. It has a dual sensor camera on the back beside a fingerprint sensor and a full notch display that houses a selfie camera. The back has a metallic accent and the colors available are: Smokey grey and tulip purple.
LG W10 features a 6.19-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio with approximately 80.7 percent screen to body ratio.
Internal and Storage
Moving towards the innards we have an Octa-core MediaTek MT6762 Helio P22 paired with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB built-in memory. The memory is expandable up to 256 GB via a dedicated SD card slot. Software-wise, the phone runs on Android 9.0 Pie.
On the back, the W10 has a dual sensor camera with a 13 MP main camera and a 5 MP fixed focus secondary sensor. For selfies, the phone is equipped with an 8 MP camera and a flash.
Battery and Pricing
It does have a sizeable battery, considering its humble specs, coming in at 4,000 mAh. It is available in only one variant and is priced at €115.
LG W30 features the same specifications as its previously mentioned sibling. It is powered by the same chipset and has the same memory options. The only difference is its screen size and cameras.
Display wise, LG W30 features a waterdrop notch on a 6.26-inch display with 720p resolution. Moving on to the cameras, this smartphone has a triple sensor rear camera with 12 MP Sony IMX486 sensor followed by a 13 MP ultra-wide sensor and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, it uses a 16 MP camera.
The phone is priced at €130 and will be available for sale from 3rd July. It will be available in two colors: Thunder Blue and Platinum Grey.
LG W30 Pro
As the name suggests, this phone is the most well-equipped specifications wise, however, it will not reach the market at the same time as its other siblings. Moreover, its price hasn’t been disclosed either.
When it comes to the design, this smartphone is an exact replica of its W30/W10 siblings, except slightly smaller. It features a 6.21-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution and a waterdrop notch that houses the selfie camera. The fingerprint sensor is housed at the back like the other W-series phones.
Internal and Storage
Internally, the phone is powered by a Snapdragon 632 SoC paired with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB built-in memory. The memory is expandable up to 256 GB via a dedicated SD card slot.
The phone runs on Android 9.0 Pie.
LG W30 Pro features a triple sensor rear camera with a 12 MP main sensor, an 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, and a 5 MP depth sensor. For selfies, the phone has a single 16 MP snapper.
Battery and Pricing
All the phones in this series are powered by a 4,000 mAh battery. The price and availability of the W30 Pro has not been made public yet.
