LG might enter online-only India market with triple-lens budget phone
A new rumor stemming from 91Mobiles suggests that South Korean electronics company LG could be mulling a new strategy in the Indian market.
According to the rumor, LG India is prepping the release of a budget-oriented smartphone that borrows multiple features from its flagship G and V series. This as-yet-unnamed handset would feature a triple rear camera, a cool gradient colorway, and would only be available through online purchasing.
Check out the leaked renders of the device below:
The unique colorway, the triple rear camera, and the assumed budget pricing of the device would be a new strategy for LG India. It’s a similar strategy to that of competitor Samsung, which launched the online-only Galaxy M series earlier this year.
As of now, not much else is known about the device or LG India’s plans. However, a new strategy in India would be a good move for LG, as it has only a small presence in the country, which is one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world.
We reached out to LG to get a comment on this story but didn’t hear back before press time.
If this smartphone is, in fact, in the pipeline, it’s a good bet it won’t see release in any other country besides India. LG’s most recent flagship in the full United States is the LG G8 ThinQ, with the LG V50 ThinQ 5G now available in specific areas of the country.
