LG releases 2G-only L60i smartphone in India for INR 6,399

LG L60In a surprise move, LG has decided to remove the 3G-support from its L60 dual smartphone and launch the phone as L60i in the Indian market. As per Mumbai-based Mahesh Telecom, the phone is now available for INR 6,399, which is around INR 300 less than L60 price at e-retailers like Amazon India and

I seriously don’t understand the reasoning behind releasing a phone, which is exactly same as another phone apart from the lack of 3G support. It might have made sense if including 3G was a costly measure and would have resulted in significant price-reduction, which is not the case here. I don’t see why any consumer would want to go for LG L60i dual.

Coming to the specifications of the new L60i, it features a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera and 1700 mAh battery. The phone also comes with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, dual-SIM support, microSD card slot and Android 4.4 KitKat. The LG L60i also packs software enhancements like Guest mode and Knock On.

  1. Why ?? Why would anyone want buy such a device with mediocre specs and now even without 3G support. It would have made much more sense if they had competitively priced it between 4-5k

  2. these are two year old specs according to price, whats wrong with these guys, if they cant manage profit margins in low budget phone category then they should quit and stay in premium category

  3. keep it up LG. you are just a couple of years away from dropping below HTC and becoming the xyz’th company struggling to survive, at least in the mobile space.

    LG – Life’s Gone.

  4. I agree with @kaushiktalukdar:disqus
    There was a Golden period for LG …when it launched “Optimus one, Optimus Black,2x & Nexus “. But now i see their product releases …its total crap …their budget n mid-segment line up is shite…They had things going very well but now they have their heads in the ground…I had such high hopes for them : !
