The LG G4 launch is just around the corner, and LG treats everyone with one of its new smartphone dubbed LG Magna. LG has officially priced Magna at Rs. 16500, which appears to be on a higher side given its entry level specs. But if you are an LG fan or like the over all appeal of this smartphone then that’s a different thing altogether.
The LG Magna was launched globally at MWC 2015 along with other LG smartphones like LG Joy, the LG Leon, and the LG Spirit. The specs on offer by LG Magna are now a days commonly found in phones in sub Rs. 10,000 category and hence it may be difficult for the company to sell these devices in India.
Now coming to specs, the LG Magna is powered by a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor along with 1 GB of RAM and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop OS. It has a total of 8 GB of internal storage along with provision for external storage via microSD card slot. It comes with dual-SIM capabilities and a 5-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) curved display with a pixel density of 294 ppi.
Although the Magna boasts of having both 3G as well as 4G LTE Cat. 4 variants, only the 3G variant has been launched in India. This infomation ha been shared on the product page here.
As per LG Magna carries “premium design elements and user experience” which until now have only been seen in the company’s premium smartphones, with features such as Gesture Shot and Glance View.
Magna sports an 8-megapixel rear camera with CMOS sensor and a 5-megapixel shooter at the front. A 2,540 mAh battery is shipped alongside to keep this phone running. It is available in three color options – blue, white and black and the dimension are 139.7×69.9×10.2mm.
