In June last year, LG introduced its new W series of smartphones in India by launching the LG W10, W30, and W30 Pro. Now, the South Korean phone maker has quietly launched yet another W series handset in the country. Called the LG W10 Alpha, the device has arrived as a more affordable variant of the LG W10. The smartphone features slim bezels on all the sides of the screen and a notch above it to house the selfie shooter. The entry-level offering boots an almost stock version of Android 9 Pie.
LG W10 Alpha specifications and features
The LG W10 Alpha features a 5.71-inch HD+ display with an aspect ratio of 19:9 and a 2.5D curved glass on top. The phone is powered by a 1.6GHz octa-core UNISOC SC9863 processor, which is paired with 3GB of RAM. The smartphone is equipped with 32GB of native storage, which can be further increased by inserting a microSD card. The device doesn’t offer a fingerprint sensor, but there’s face unlock for security.
At the rear, the LG W10 Alpha has an 8MP autofocus camera with an LED flash unit on the back. For selfies and video calling, the device is equipped with an 8MP fixed-focus snapper. The connectivity features are standard including 4G LTE, dual-SIM slots, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, USB OTG, and A-GPS. A 3,450mAh battery with regular charging support keeps the whole package alive.
LG W10 Alpha price in India
The LG W10 Alpha has been priced at Rs 9,999 and comes in a single Black colour variant. The phone is listed on the company’s website. However, there’s no word when and where the handset will be available to buy in the country. The smartphone’s predecessor, the LG W10, is currently retailing in India for around Rs 7,500.
