LG L80 Dual is an overpriced KitKat phone in India at Rs 17,500

The flagship G3 isn’t the only phone making news today as the LG L80 Dual has gone official in India carrying a price tag of Rs 17,500. The smartphone is the largest member in the L Series III lineup, but has slightly lower specifications compared to the L90 handset.

The LG L80 Dual first made its appearance in Indonesia where it was unveiled at an event. The phone is yet to be launched elsewhere, suggesting that it could be designed specifically for emerging markets. Design-wise, it looks no different from its smaller siblings and it’s loaded with the same set of features as well. At 5 inches wide, the IPS display only offers WVGA resolution which makes the phone a less alluring pick in front of the Moto G and the Huawei Honor 3C amongst others.

Apart from its classy looks, the smartphone has some pretty mediocre hardware, certainly not the type you’d expect for a Rs 17,500 phone. There’s a 1.2GHz dual core processor with Adreno 302 graphics delivering the steam, while storage options rest in the hands of 1GB RAM, 4GB flash memory and a microSD card slot. On the upside, this dual SIM phone offers Android 4.4.2 KitKat, 50GB of free Box storage and a 2540mAh battery.

The LG L80 Dual has shown up on the company’s website with the aforementioned price. Availability details for the phone are yet to be disclosed by the company.
