Dual cameras are gaining momentum after brands such as LG and Huawei featured the technology in their latest flagships. The advanced camera setup is also slowly moving from high-end smartphones to mid-range models. LG had showcased it's all new X series at the Mobile World Congress 2016 in February and the X cam smartphone with dual camera had made quite an appearance.
After months of wait, LG X cam has finally arrived in India with its dual camera setup at a competitive price. For Rs. 21,500, the LG X cam is listed on the company's official website in its Titan Silver hue, but there are reports that the handset is already selling for as low as Rs. 18,999, Gadgets360 reported.
LG X cam was made available in the global markets in March, but India's release was postponed extensively. But the technology used in the X cam makes it still a compelling device.
In terms of specifications, LG X cam features a 5.2-inch Full HD display with InCell Touch technology, boasts a 3D Arc design with a large camera compartment at the back. There are two camera lenses placed side-by-side along with an LED flash just below. The X cam camera is made up of a 13MP + 5MP rear camera setup with its second sensor having a 120-degree wide-angle lens. On the front, there is a 5-megapixel snapper with a Pop Out Picture feature that combines 6 images into a moving photo similar to Live Photos.
Under the hood, LG X cam is powered by a 1.14GHz octa-core SoC, which is paired with Mali-T720MP3 GPU and 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB onboard storage with a microSD card slot, which supports up to 2TB. But the microSD card slot also doubles up as a secondary SIM card slot. The handset runs the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS with LG UI 5.0 skin on top of it.
LG X cam's biggest USP is the camera setup, but it lacks premium features such as fingerprint scanner, which is available on smartphones half its price. The handset sports a 2520mAh battery while measuring 6.9mm thick and supports 4G VoLTE, FM Radio and 3.5mm audio jack.
