The W10 Alpha, LG has introduced a new, inexpensive smartphone that comes with dual SIM and VoLTE support. The device with 3 GB RAM will cost the equivalent of 130 euros.
The South Korean company LG today introduced the W10 Alpha, a new smartphone that is priced at the equivalent of 130 euros in the entry-level segment. The device has a 5.71-inch HD + display, where the 8 MP selfie camera is hidden in a waterdrop notch. LG installs the same 8 MP sensor on the back, whereby this one has an auto focus and can record videos in 1080p.
Inside, the manufacturer uses the Unisoc SC9863A as a SoC, a 28nm octacore processor with all cores clocked at 1.6 GHz. The chip is supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage, while the latter can be expanded by up to 128 GB using a microSD card. The smartphone also comes with dual SIM support, with the W10 Alpha also supporting VoLTE. The built-in battery is reasonably large with a capacity of 3450mAH, although there are sometimes significantly higher capacities of up to 5000mAH among the competition devices. The older full Android 9.0 Pie is used as the operating system.
For the time being, the smartphone will only be available in India for the price of the equivalent of 130 euros. Unfortunately, it is still unclear whether and when the W10 Alpha will make it to Europe.
