Update: E-Retailer Snapdeal has started selling the LG L90, however the price-tag is lower than what we had earlier seen in the pre-order listing of Infibeam. The phone is being sold at INR 17,499. We are still waiting for the an official announcement to confirm these details.
Earlier: Remember the LG-series III, which was unveiled last month, the first smartphone from this series is all set to reach the Indian market. The new LG L90 dual has appeared on e-retailer Infibeam with availability scheduled for March 25. The Infibeam listing also reveals the pricing of the smartphone, which will most likely retail for INR 18,990 in the country.
LG L90 dual features Android 4.4, 4.7-inch qHD IPS display, 1GB of RAM and 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor. The phone also packs 8MP rear camera, 1.3MP front camera, 8GB of internal storage and 2540 mAh battery.
In addition, L90 dual includes dual-SIM support, microSD card slot and the usual set of connectivity options.
The pricing is a bit on the upside as Moto G with similar features retails for a lot less. There are some positives on L90 like the presence of microSD card slot, rear camera with higher resolution but it also packs a lower-res display.
There is no word on the release of single-SIM model or other L-series III devices in the country right now.
Great choice at ~12K. Somewhat acceptable at ~14K. Terrible choice at 19K. Anybody who’s heard of the MotoG would be better served by saving 5K and get that one instead. Pure Android, more available ROMs, longer support from CM, and on XDA … and the list goes on.
This worries me about the pricing on the G pro 2
Some peoples complaining about price……………………Is Galaxy Grand price 12k? Is Grand 2 price 15k? Is S4 mini also 15k? Is ur Moto G non-removable battery? This phone u can compare with Grand 2 which price is 22k in market.
Grand2, G2Neo, T2 Ultra, S4 Mini – all are hugely overpriced, as also the upcoming Xperia M2 if reports on probable pricing are to be believed. The MotoG has become the yardstick with which to measure new releases henceforth.
As for the non-removable batty and no expansion slot on the MG, those are obviously cons that go against it, but all things considered, once you have to make compromises anyways, the MG – with it’s few negatives – still makes much, much more sense than any of the aforementioned ones, unless the screen size is your ONLY concern.
Anyways, if Asus can bring the Zenfones at stated pricepoints, we will probably see a shakeup in the smartphone pricing strategies of various OEMs.
