After weeks of teasers and leaks, the LG W series has finally debuted in the budget segment. The three phones that debuted are LG W10, LG W30, and LG W30 Pro. The best one of the lot is W30 Pro and it features customizable notches, StereoPulse sound, gradient colors, and a humongous 4000mAh battery. That said, the three W-series phones are more similar than different.
LG W10 Highlights
The LG W10 has a 6.19-inch HD+ LCD display with 18.9:9 aspect ratio. A long notch island grabs your attention up front and it distinguishes it from the W30s. It comes out in two colors- Tulip Purple and Smokey Grey.
It is powered by a 2GHz MediaTek Helio P22 octa-core chipset, along with 3GB RAM and 32GB storage (expandable via microSD card upto 256GB). The demo unit had stock-ish Android Pie. A 4000mAh battery fuels the device.
Coming to the camera, upfront you get an 8MP selfie snapper. At the back resides a dual-camera setup including a 13MP primary shooter accompanied by a 5MP depth sensor.
Rest of the specs include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a 3.5mm headphone jack, a micro USB port, Hybrid nano dual SIM, dual standby 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.2.
LG W30 Highlights
This one has a slightly bigger display that stretches to 6.26 inches granting a 19:9 aspect ratio. It flaunts in Thunder Blue, Platinum Grey, and Aurora Green colors. The front camera houses a bigger 16MP sensor.
There are three cameras at the back including a primary 13MP sensor paired with a 12MP sensor and a 2MP depth-sensing camera.
Although the rest of the specs are similar, it weighs a tad more around 172g.
Both LG W30 and W30 Pro (below) has a smaller notch implementation. LG lets you customize this to your liking by choosing amongst V-shape and U-shape or completely hiding the notch area.
LG W30 Pro Highlights
In the display front, it stands betwixt the other two with a 6.21-inch screen offering a 19:9 aspect ratio. The color variants are Pine Green, Denim Blue, and Black. It switches the processing power to Snapdragon 632 SoC. The phone bears 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage that is expandable via microSD card.
LG bumps the sensor sizes in its cameras. The vertical camera panel is home to a 13MP primary sensor, 5MP secondary one, and finally an 8MP depth sensor. The selfie unit is same as the non-pro variant.
An interesting aspect of LG W30 Pro is the Stereo Pulse technology that vibrates sound from the rear panel while the phone is lying flat.
