While LG may or may not exit the smartphone market soon (there is a lot of conflicting information on this at the moment), at the moment the company is definitely still in the game.
And that’s how he launched today a new device in India, the K42. This rugged-looking handset was originally announced in September of last year, but it’s finally made it to the subcontinent.
Its price is INR 10,990 (around $ 150 or € 123 at current exchange rates). It will be available from Flipkart on January 26 in green and gray. If you buy a K42, you’ll get a two-year warranty as well as a free one-time screen replacement if you need it.
So what do you get from the phone? The LG K42 has a 6.6-inch 720×1600 touchscreen, MediaTek Helio P22 chipset at the helm, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, 13MP main rear camera, 5MP ultrawide, macro 2 MP cam, a 2 MP depth sensor and an 8 MP selfie snapper.
There’s a 3.5mm headphone jack, side-mounted fingerprint sensor, dedicated Google Assistant button, 4000mAh battery, and MIL-STD 810G compliance for ruggedness.
