In recent years, Chinese manufacturers like Xiaomi, Vivo, and OPPO has gained a good shared of the Indian market. To counter them, Samsung launched the online-only Galaxy M series earlier this year. Now, according to a report by 91mobiles, LG will be launching an India-centric smartphone that will be available for purchase only through offline channels. The smartphone’s name is still a mystery, but some of the details have been revealed.
A poster of the yet to be announced LG phone has been revealed by the publication. According to it, the handset will have a strong battery, AI triple cameras and FullVision Display. The rear of the smartphone will sport a gradient finish but there is no confirmation whether it is a glass back or a polycarbonate one.
The vertically aligned triple camera setup can be seen on the top left corner of the back panel. The third sensor comes with a red ring and a LED flash is seen below it. This will be the first smartphone with a triple camera setup from the South Korean manufacturer. A circular fingerprint sensor can be seen in the middle part with the company’s branding towards the bottom. The right side houses the volume rocker and the power button.
The publication has revealed that the company will be borrowing some key features from its own G and V series of smartphones but will be released in a completely new line-up. Over these past years, there has been a decline in the purchase of LG phones which is why the company might be adopting this strategy. It will not be easy to rival the Chinese OEM’s in India who are giving high-end specs while keeping the price affordable.
There is no official launch date but the new series is expected to go official this month. We will be covering more information if any new details surface. Till then, keep tuned.
