LG has Samsung's Galaxy M Series of smartphones firmly in its sights with its new trio of W-series smartphones. Styled quite similarly to the Samsung range, the new LG W10, W30 and W30 Pro all come with a display notch of one sort or another and either dual or triple AI-powered cameras.

LG has launched a trio of new smartphones in the Indian market that have clearly been designed and priced to tackle Samsung's popular Galaxy M Series. The new LG W10, W30 and W30 Pro will even adopt the same marketing strategy that Samsung used to good effect by selling the devices in flash sales through Amazon India. Apparently, smartphones with notches are still a thing in India with LG emphasising the various types of display notches each model offers in its marketing.

The LG W10 centers on a 6.19-inch 18:9:9 HD+ Notch FullVision display and is powered by a MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core process clocked at 2 GHz that is mated to 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. It incorporates dual 4G SIM arrangement, a large 4,000 mAH battery and dual rear cameras, one 13 MP and the other 5 MP. The front facing 8MP camera is also capable of face-unlocking. The dual-SIM LG W30 uses the same SoC, RAM, storage and 4,000 mAh battery as the W10 but offers a slightly larger 6.26-inch 19:9 HD + Dot FullVision display. It also moves to a triple rear camera set up with 12 MP (low light), 13 MP (wide) and 2 MP (depth) sensors.

The flagship model in the range, the dual-SIM LG W30 Pro switches things up with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 632 octa-core SoC clocked at 1.8 GHz mated to 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. It features a 6.21-inch 19:9 HD+ FullVision display with V-style notch. Like the regular W30 it also features a triple rear camera set up but with a 13 MP, 5 MP and 8MP sensors. It also packs the same 4,000 mAh battery common across the range. Another differentiating feature is its Stereo Pulse speaker that uses the phone internal space of the phone as a resonance chamber for richer audio.

The LG W10 and LG W30 go on sale in India from July 3 priced at the equivalent of US$130 and US$144 respectively. The LG W30 Pro is still to get a launch date and official pricing.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
