LG X Cam Arrives in India Priced at $299 or INR 19,990
The LG X Cam was officially launched in India withÂ a $299/ INR 19,990 price tag and that’s quite nice for a dual-camera setup, which is the highlight of this mid-ranged droid. Other than that, the X Cam is very much alike the G5, especially in the multi-media department. On the back panel you’ll find the two aforementioned snappers, a 13 megapixels sensor boasting a wide angle lens while the second one is a 5 megapixels variety featuring an ultra wide angle lens, for capturing 120 degrees field of view.
This interesting setup can be used for various things, such as taking wide angle shots or, as per the 5 MP unit, working together with the main camera for creating a PiP (picture-in-picture, just like in the TVs) effect, using the images taken by both cameras. Playing with the camera is one thing, but there’s more about the LG X Cam than meets the eye sort to speak. As per other specs, the display is a 5.2 inches wide IPS LCD variety, with full HD resolution (1080p) and a solid 424 pixels per inch density, which is way above Retina. The screen to body ratio is 68,7%, alsoÂ quite decent.
Powering the show is a relatively modestÂ Mediatek MT6753 system on chip, and truth be told, considering that India is an emerging market, for a $300 price tag one would expect a Qualcomm Snapdragon on board. However, theÂ Mediatek MT6753 is no small potatoes, featuring an octa core architecture with Cortex A53 CPUs clocked at 1.14 GHZ, working in tandem with aÂ Mali-T720MP3 graphic processing unit. Other than that, there’s 2 GB of RAM on board and 16 GB of internal storage capacity, all running on Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Except from the relatively hefty price tag considering what’s under the hood and the market to which is addressed, the LG X Cam seems pretty interesting and I’d love to see some comments from Indian users, if any.
