Samsung announced last week that its Galaxy M-series had crossed the 2 million sales milestone in the Indian market. Thanks to the high demand for the M-series phones, Samsung has managed to double its sales in the online sales segment when compared to last year. A new report from 91Mobiles claims LG is also planning to do something similar in the budget segment by launching an India-centric smartphone series that will take on Samsung’s Galaxy M-series.
LG to Launch New India-Centric Smartphone Series Soon
Citing reliable sources, the report says LG will be launching the first smartphone under its new series for the Indian market soon. Similar to Samsung’s Galaxy M-series, the upcoming LG smartphone will only be sold online in India. While no specific date has been mentioned, the report does claim that the first handset in the new lineup will be formally launched in the country before the end of this month.
Unlike Samsung, however, LG does not hold a significant share of the Indian smartphone market. Since the brand doesn’t enjoy the same level of popularity as Samsung in the country, it remains to be seen if the new India-centric smartphone series from LG will be able to achieve similar success as the Galaxy M-series.
LG’s First Budget Smartphone With Triple Rear Cameras to Launch This Month
The render of the upcoming LG budget Android smartphone shared by 91Mobiles shows a triple-camera setup on the back. As can be seen quite clearly in the render above, the third sensor is encircled with a red accent. Below the vertically-stacked triple camera sensors, we can see an LED flash module. Unsurprisingly, the budget Android smartphone will also include a circular fingerprint sensor on the back. In terms of design, the upcoming budget smartphone from LG will have an attractive gradient finish on the back.
On the right side, the phone features the usual power and volume buttons. Antenna lines are also visible at the top and bottom edges of the device. The other image seems to suggest the smartphone will have a FullVision display and quite a few AI-enhanced features. Unfortunately, there is no information available regarding the hardware specifications of the upcoming smartphone. The report only claims that the smartphone will have several features that we have so far seen on LG’s flagship G and V series smartphones. Since the smartphone is tipped to launch in India later this month, we can expect more information to become available in the coming days.
