It’s been a week since South Korean electronics major LG launched its new W-Series smartphones in India. The W-Series is an online-only brand (as of now) and seems to be a direct response by LG to the brands like Realme, Xiaomi, ASUS, and Motorola – all of which have a sizable presence in the budget segment with their excellent smartphone portfolio. At the time of the launch, LG had revealed that two of the three W-Series devices that were showcased at the launch (the W10 and the W30) would go on sale starting today, July 3, 2019. The first flash sale of both these handsets went live on Amazon earlier today and if we are to believe a tweet by LG, both the devices went out of stock within minutes of the sale going live.
LG10, W30 First flash sale a massive success
A little over two hours after the LG W10 and the W30 went on sale for the first time on Amazon, LG India confirmed that both the devices were completely sold out. The company, however, did not reveal the number of units they had in their inventory. LG also revealed that the next flash sale for these handsets would be held on July 10.
