Following the launch of the LG Q7, the smartphone maker has now announced LG Candy set at an Rs. 6,699 price in India. This is a low-end handset that comes with interchangeable back covers and Android Nougat out of the box. It will be on sale starting September 1 in Silver, Blue, and Gold colour options. It’s been some time since LG ventured in this low-end territory but this device seems to compete with the likes of the Redmi 5A which is selling in truckloads these days.
Being an entry-level device you shouldn’t expect this smartphone to blow your socks off. So here goes. The LG Candy has a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) On-Cell Touch display with 294ppi. That isn’t very bad for Rs 6k device. Its 1.3GHz quad-core processor is unnamed and is paired with 2GB of RAM. There’s 16GB of internal storage and that is expandable upto 32GB.
The LG Candy uses a 2,500mAh removable battery and charges via USB Type-C. It also features FM Radio and LTE. Camera-wise, you’re looking at an 8MP sensor with ‘Flash Jump Shot’. This features snaps a picture every 3 seconds and mends a series of them into a GIF. The front has a 5MP shooter with features like Auto Shot and Gesture Shot. If you’re concerned about dimensions, the LG Candy measures 146.3×73.2×8.2mm and weighs 152 grams.
