LG looks set to battle its Korean rival Samsung and Xiaomi in the online smartphone segment in India with the launch of an all-new LG W series. The LG W10 perhaps will arrive first under the new Series, and from what we know about the device so far, it will get a triple rear camera, and aggressive pricing, according to LG’s teaser.
While LG and its online partner – Amazon India have yet to divulge more details, Google Android has jumped the guns as it has just uploaded the device profile on the Android Enterprise website. The listing has a render which we supposed is just a placeholder and not the LG W10. The image reveals a device with a large display and a wide notch on top which contradicts previously leaked renders.
The listing says the LG W10 (LGE W10) will come fitted with a 6.2-inch display, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage, and will boot Android 9 out of the box. The listing further noted the LG device will get a fingerprint sensor, no NFC, and “Zero-touch Support.”
Other than that, there isn’t much more we could get from the listing. However, we do know from previous leaks and renders that the W10 will feature a display with the water-drop notch, thin bezels on both side, but with a chin large enough to take up a fingerprint scanner. The device is also tipped to get a vertically stacked triple-rear camera setup with a red colored ring on the camera sensor. The camera details are still scarce. Leaks also point to a 4000mAh battery, Helio P60 or Snapdragon 439 SoC under its hood.
LG has yet to announce an official launch date, but will surely be made official in the coming weeks.
