In a rather surprising turn of events, amidst the surge of the 4G LTE devices in the Indian market, LG has instilled astonishment among numerous fans by launching a new variant of the LG L60 smartphone.
It's not surprising in a positive note but a rather ironic move. The new LG L60 variant called the LG L60i is the same LG L60 phone with just the 3G connectivity option missing in it.
As per Mumbai-based Mahesh Telecom, the phone is now available for Rs. 6,399, which is around Rs. 300 less than L60 price at e-retailers like Amazon India and Snapdeal. But does the Rs. 300 difference help the company sell the 2G enabled units more?
It's not event a subject to highly suspicion but a backwards move altogether. It is still now sure what LG is trying to do with the new phone. Moreover, why would a customer buy the 2G model instead of getting 3G variant in just Rs. 300 more.
As far as the specs are concerned, the new L60i comes packed with a 4.3-inch WVGA display. It is powered by a 1.3GHz dual-core processor coupled with a 512MB of RAM. There is a 5MP rear camera, 4GB of internal storage, dual-SIM support, microSD card slot, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 1700 mAh battery. Additionally, the phone comes with software enhancements like Guest mode and Knock code as well.
