LG K 2017 Series Launched in India

LG has unveiled the new K Series starting with the LG K10 (2017). The launch event was initiated in the presence of Union IT Minister Mr Ravi Shankar Prasad and was live-streamed on LG’s official YouTube channel.

Priced at Rs. 13,990, the LG K10 (2017) is targeted towards those looking for a budget-friendly device. A 5.3 incher at a price that low is definitely a good deal. Let’s have a quick specs run-down before we dive in deep into the handset.

LG K Series 2017 LG K10 features

  • 3-inch display with a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution

  • 5 GHz Octa-core processor

  • 2GB RAM

  • Android 7.0 OS

  • 13MP Primary Camera

  • 5MP Secondary Camera

  • 16/32 GB Internal Storage extendable up to 2 TB

  • 2800 mAh battery

Have a look at the specs, and you’ll realise the K10 (2017) is indeed a delicious cupcake with all the necessary ingredients. A 5.3-inch, screen size shouldn’t be a problem. Making things faster is a 1.5 GHz Octa-core processor and a 2GB RAM. The handset comes loaded with the latest Android 7.0 operating system.

If you like capturing a few good moments every now and then, a 13MP camera would probably satisfy you. However, an 8 MP camera instead of a 5MP snapper on the front would have made things a bit more exciting for selfie lovers.

Regarding internal storage, you get to choose between a 16GB and a 32GB variant. While that won’t excite you too much, here is something you need to cheer about. The phone lets you extend the memory up to 2 TB. Yes, you read that right! Now, you get to dump all your important files, favourite music and movies onto your phone. Finally, a 2800 mAh battery may not be the most powerful one around, but surely good enough to offer you a desirable talk-time.

Well, in terms of specs, LG leaves behind no stone unturned. Also, with LG K10 flaunting an impressive price tag of around 14K, you definitely have a huge reason to consider the new K series. And of course, if Rs. 13,999 is not what you intend to spend on a smartphone; you have a few more options to choose from. So, in my opinion, the new LG K series gets a straight 9 on 10 in terms of features and the pricing.
