LG’s finally brought the X Cam to India after launching the handset all the way back in February at the MWC 2016. The device was in fact one of the first smartphones to be launched as part of the brand’s X series of affordable phones which offer one premium feature amid a host of mid-range ones.
In the case of the LG X Cam, the handset’s superpower lies in its dual-camera setup consisting of a 13MP standard lens and 5MP 120-degree wide-angle one, similar to the LG G5’s twin-snapper system. The company claims the two together capture over 53% more area than other smartphones.
Users of the X Cam can take advantage of neat tools like Pop-out Picture and Panorama View. The first lets them combine two snaps taken by the shooters to generate a picture-in-a-frame effect, while the second automatically scrolls through a wide image instead of a static one.
Other neat features include Signature to add a caption or byline after clicking a snap and Animated Photo to deliver a hybrid video and still image. As for its specs, the LG offering runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and gets by with the help of a 1.14GHz octa-core processor.
