A report published by 91Mobiles a few days back had claimed LG would soon launch a new India-centric smartphone series to take on rival Samsung’s Galaxy M series. More details regarding the upcoming smartphone series have now surfaced, thanks to a new report from The Times of India. Additionally, Amazon.in has set up an official ‘Notify me’ page for the upcoming series, which confirms the first smartphone to be launched under the new W series will have a triple-camera setup.
LG to Take on Rivals in the Budget Segment With New W Series Phones
The Times of India report claims LG’s upcoming W series of smartphones will take on rivals from companies such as Xiaomi, Realme, and Samsung Galaxy M series. LG is expected to launch “several” W series smartphones, with one of them featuring a triple-lens camera system. In terms of pricing, the LG W series will reportedly start at under INR 10,000 in the Indian market. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy M series, LG’s upcoming W series will be sold via online channels only. While LG’s past offerings in the budget segment failed to excite consumers, the W series certainly sounds very promising. LG India managing director Ki Wan Kim was spotted using the top-end W series model recently, featuring a gradient back design and triple cameras.
LG W Series ‘Notify Me’ Page Now Live on Amazon.in
Since the LG W Series ‘Notify me’ page has gone live on Amazon.in, it is now quite clear that LG has decided to partner with Amazon to sell its India-centric smartphones online. According to the official landing page, the LG W series will be “worth the wait”. The page confirms the first smartphone to be launched in the new W series will come with AI-enabled triple rear cameras. In addition to the usual Portrait and Bokeh modes, the smartphone will also offer a Night Mode for low-light photography along with wide-angle image capabilities.
While details such as the display size and resolution are yet to be revealed, the ‘Notify me’ page on Amazon.in reveals the first W series from LG will have a waterdrop notch. Thanks to a software feature, you will be able to customize the notch depending on your preference. In terms of design, the smartphone will come in three “futuristic” colors. However, the biggest reason to consider the LG W series smartphone could be its “pocket-worthy price tag”. Even though a specific release date has not been confirmed yet, we can expect at least the first W series smartphone to be launched in India before the end of this month.
