LG has launched its K10 (2017) smartphone in India today. Priced at Rs 13,990, the K10 2017 will go on sale via major online retail stores starting February 26. As an introductory launch offer, LG is also providing unlimited movie and video downloads on Hungama for free for 45 days. The smartphone will be available in black, gold and titanium color variants.
The company has already made the device available across all the offline stores for now. The key highlight that would attract most of the consumers is the inbuilt SOS panic button.
The LG K10 becomes the first ever device to come packed with a panic button. Last year , Indian Government made it mandatory for devices to be sold in 2017 to include a panic button which when pressed can contact emergency numbers at a click. The SOS button fitted inside the LG K10 will help the users in an emergency situation, by allowing them to make emergency calls to some select contacts when needed. LG K10 is designed to promote women safety in the country.
LG has launched the smartphone with a curved elemental design, smooth edges and a 2.5D Arc glass on top. It has a round fingerprint scanner on the back that doesn’t just unlock the phone but also helps in capturing images and taking screenshots.
