As LG gears up for the launch of G3 flagship in India on July 21, the South Korean handset maker could go the distance and announce a new budget Android phone in the country. Dubbed as LG D392, the forthcoming handset may end up being sold as the F60. While few details are available at this point of time, the LG F60 could prove to be a big hit if marketed in a right manner.
The upcoming budget smartphone, the LG F60, was recently spotted in Zauba listing. On the Zauba site, the LG D392 was listed as having been shipped into the country. There is a speculation that the D392 is the LG G60 - an arch rival to Motorola's Moto E.
According to the import/export site, the LG D392 is expected to come with a 4.5-inch WVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 800 pixels. The device is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core (unknown type), coupled with 1GB of RAM, 4GB of on-board memory, and a microSD card slot. In the imaging department, the forthcoming smartphone sports a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, alongside a VGA quality front-facing shooter. The device runs on the latest Android 4.4 Kitkat mobile OS.
Over the past few months, LG has been quite aggressive when it comes to Indian handset market. However, the makers behind the G2 handset have not able to capture the low-end of the smart phone market, citing lack of compelling devices. The forthcoming LG F60 should be seen as a hope, more than a challenge. The LG F60 may be the right handset to challenge the likes of Motorola Moto E, Micromax Unite 2, Samsung Galaxy Star Advance, Panasonic T41, amongst others.
So far there is no update as to when LG plans to introduce the so-called "LG F60" here in India. However, it seems that the phone is headed for Indian debut shortly.
