In a surprise move, LG has decided to remove the 3G-support from its L60 dual smartphone and launch the phone as L60i in the Indian market. As per Mumbai-based Mahesh Telecom, the phone is now available for INR 6,399, which is around INR 300 less than L60 price at e-retailers like Amazon India and Snapdeal.com.
I seriously don’t understand the reasoning behind releasing a phone, which is exactly same as another phone apart from the lack of 3G support. It might have made sense if including 3G was a costly measure and would have resulted in significant price-reduction, which is not the case here. I don’t see why any consumer would want to go for LG L60i dual.
Coming to the specifications of the new L60i, it features a 4.3-inch WVGA display, 1.3GHz dual-core processor, 5MP rear camera and 1700 mAh battery. The phone also comes with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, dual-SIM support, microSD card slot and Android 4.4 KitKat. The LG L60i also packs software enhancements like Guest mode and Knock On.
