LG W10 Alpha has debuted in India as the company's latest budget smartphone. The new smartphone, which is a part of the LG W series that was originally launched in the country in June last year, comes with an octa-core processor and features a RainDrop Notch (company speak for waterdrop-style display notch). The LG W10 Alpha also comes with the company's proprietary 2D Arc Design and includes artificial intelligence (AI) based camera features. LG claims that its newest offering has the power to deliver up to 10 days of standby time. Similar to the competition, the LG W10 Alpha also comes with an AI Facial Unlock feature that appears to use the front-facing camera sensor to unlock the device.
The LG W10 Alpha price in India is set at Rs. 9,999 for the 3GB RAM + 32GB storage configuration, as listed on the LG India site. The smartphone comes in only Black colour option. Moreover, it is likely to be available for purchase through offline retail stores in the country.
