LG introduced the all-new W-series to compete against the Chinese brands in the budget smartphone category. Along with the LG W10, the company also introduced LG W30 and LG W30 Pro smartphones. Earlier this year, Samsung launched the all-new Galaxy M series and in a way penetrated into the Indian budget smartphone market which is mostly occupied by the Chinese brands.

Talking about the cameras, the device comes with dual camera setup on the rear featuring 13MP primary sensor with 2x zoom and a 5MP depth sensor for bokeh mode.
There is also an 8MP selfie camera on the front with LED flash. The LG W10 is backed by a 4,000mAh battery and lacks fast charging support.
