Despite the cancellation of Mobile World Congress 2020, some companies are pushing through with their announcements. After making three new K-series phones official, LG has now introduced the LG W10 Alpha.

Since it’s in the entry-level category, we expect the LG W10 Alpha to compete with products of the prominent Chinese brands currently dominating the market.

The LG W10 Alpha features a small 5.71-inch screen with HD+ resolution and 19:9 aspect ratio. A teardrop notch up top houses the front-facing 8-megapixel camera, while the primary sensor on the back also shoots 8-megapixels. It can shoot 1080p videos and has autofocus.

In terms of hardware inside, the LG W10 Alpha is equipped with a 28nm Unisoc SC9863A octa-core processor (like in Alcatel 1s), 3GB RAM, 32GB onboard storage, and an option to add more by using a microSD. As usual, the Dual SIM feature is also here.

For software, it runs on an outdated Android 9.0 operating system. There’s also no fingerprint scanner included, but the handset has a face unlock feature for security purposes. In addition, PIN and pattern lock are also available.

The battery capacity is quite small at 3,450mAh, but LG says that it can handle 29 hours of music playback, talk time of 12 hours, and 5 hours of video playback. There’s no mention of any fast charging involved.

The LG W10 Alpha is priced at INR 10,000 or around Php7,000 when directly converted to Philippine Peso.
