LG K3 entry-level smartphone with Android 6.0 Marshmallow launched

The latest addition to LG’s line of the affordable smartphone is K3. The South Korean manufacturer has launched LG K3 in the US at a price tag of $80 (Rs. 5,500). The two prepaid carriers – Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile has started selling the phone online. The device is expected to reach the retail stores next week. We expect to launch the device in other regions outside the US.


Perhaps, there may not be many smartphones available at this price point featuring Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box. That is the highlight of LG K3 smartphone and is a choice for those who looks forward to grabbing one Android M phone for below Rs. 6000. Counting on other specifications, LG K3 comes with 4.5-inch FWVGA (480×854 pixels) IPS display. It is powered by a 1.1GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor paired with 1GB of RAM. The smartphone has an 8GB of inbuilt storage that can be further expanded up to 32GB via microSD card.

On its camera specifications, LG K3 smartphone boasts of 5MP rear camera with LED flash. There is a 0.3MP front-facing camera as well. In terms of connectivity, this smartphone supports Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3G, 4G, and Micro-USB. A 1940mAh removable battery completes the package. LG claims the battery to offer up to 14 hours of talk time.

LG K3’s availability in the international market is not known. However, the launch is anticipated soon. Meanwhile, it is not long ago that LG made four launches — X Power, X Style, X Max, and X Mach smartphones. As their names indicate, each of the four smartphones excels in one specification. To say, while X Power scores high in terms of battery, featuring 4100mAh cell, LG X Style boasts of its design and form. Other specifications are not revealed yet, but the company has promised to make them available in the market by next month.

U can also consider htc 10 . Its a quite good phone with excellent sound quality. Try it once at your nearest htc store and u will definitely like it. Although price is very expensive but it is worth it. Its much better than those crappy iphones on which there’s no lte only mode.
