First announced ahead of CES 2017, LG has released the K10 for the Indian market. Dubbed the ‘Dhaakad Phone’, the device comes with safety and design features along with a panic button as per the Government of India guidelines.
The power button doubles up as the SOS button and pressing it thrice will automatically dial the emergency number 112. LG is the first company adhering to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommendation to have a single emergency number. The device has the usual pebble design with 2.5D arc screen associated with the K series and a display which will continue to be functional even with cracks on the screen. The front camera has a 120 degree wide angle lens which will capture a lot more width when clicking selfies. Other features include a rear fingerprint sensor and OTG support allowing for connecting even peripherals like mice and keyboards.
Priced at Rs. 13,990, the K10 is the only device from the 2017 K series available in India for the time being.
