LG has so far not been able to capture the low-end of the handset market. And while the company continues to eye premium segment, it is still hard to say whether LG would ever crack the affordable segment. And now for a change it looks like LG is currently planning to release a low-end handset under the L-series.
Dubbed L35 ( D150), the low-cost phone is now listed online on the official website in Germany. Not surprisingly, there is no update about the phone's release date or market price.
The device, LG L35, features a 3.2-inch HVGA display with a resolution of 480 x 320 pixels. The LG L35 is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor, coupled with 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal memory, which can be later expanded up via a microSD card slot.
On the imaging front, the device comes with a 3-megapixel rear-facing camera, while there is no front-facing shooter onboard. The makers have added a 1,540mAh battery fitted inside. The LG L35 measures in at 109.4 x 59 x 11.9 mm, and weighs 108.4 grams. When it comes to the phone's software capabilities, it runs Android 4.4.2 kitkat out-of-the box. Apparently, the handset will be made available in Black and White versions.
Currently, the smartphone maker is booming, especially, in countries like India and China. So the L35 could be LG's way of competing with the Motorola and Sony in key handset markets. The LG L35, if it comes to India, will face tough competition from market leader in the low-end segment, the Motorola Moto E. Aside from the Moto E, the LG L35 appears to be identical to the Sony Xperia E1, which is now available for less than Rs. 8,000 via selected online retailers.
