LG X Screen, the lower mid-range Android smartphone with a small-sized secondary display, has been launched in India for Rs 12,990. This smartphone was first showcased by LG during MWC 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. The 1.76-inch ‘Always On’ secondary display allows access to quick functions such as answering calls, launching frequently used apps, music playback controls, and more without affecting current tasks.
The LG X Screen features a 4.93-inch IPS LCD display with 720p resolution and In-Cell touchscreen technology. The 1.76-inch secondary display sits above the main display. The secondary display also allows users to view information such as time, date, battery level, and notifications without activating the main display, thereby saving power. There’s a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
Under the hood, the LG X Screen is equipped with a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage space, a microSD card slot (up to 2TB). It comes preloaded with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but the company hasn’t specified if it will ever be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat. It comes with 4G LTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth, and a 2,300mAh battery.
The LG X Screen will be available exclusively through Snapdeal in Black, Pink Gold, and White starting July 20, 2016.
