LG is still in the business of announcing its lineup of phones that was originally intended for the MWC. Just recently, the company announced an entry-level phone – the LG W10 Alpha, which will compete with other affordable phones coming from the Chinese brands.
LG W10 Alpha Features
The LG W10 Alpha is powered by a Unisoc SC9863A chipset, as we have seen in phones like the Alcatel 1s. The chipset is paired with a 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The internal storage can also be expanded further up to 128GB via a dedicated microSD slot.
The LG W10 Alpha features a 5.71 inch display with 720p+ resolution (19.9 aspect ratio). The display has a teardrop notch with an 8MP front-facing camera, matching the 8MO resolution of the camera on the rear. The W10 Alpha does not have a fingerprint reader, instead it relies on face unlock.
The phone has a dual SIM standby with dual VolTE support. It also supports TD-SCDMA and FDD-LTE, so it should work on Chinese carriers as well. It has a 3450mAh battery which is good for 12 hours of talk time, 29 hours of music or 5 hours of video playback. The phone is available only in black.
LG W10 Alpha Price
The LG W10 Alpha price is INR10,000 ($140/€130), which is a fairly affordable price for an Android 9.0 Pie phone.
