LG has launched a new budget-friendly smartphone just a few days after it announced their new flagship device.
The new LG K30 will join the company’s line of affordable smartphones. With that, we expect it to gain the attention of the people in markets like the Philippines, India, Indonesia, and other Southeast Asian countries. But disappointingly, it is only currently available in the US via T-Mobile.
Still, let’s not lose our hopes of seeing the LG K30 here in the country. With its set of features, it will be a shame if it won’t make it here. Although with the fierce competition here, they might want to adjust the price tag a tad bit.
The LG K30 packs a 5.3-inch HD screen — a decent size for a device of this caliber. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage.
The main camera is a decent 13-megapixel shooter, while for selfies there’s a 5-megapixel camera on the front. The device runs on Android 7.1 Nougat, which is a little outdated by today’s standards.
