LG has announced a new budget phone for the US market. The new LG K30 was announced yesterday and is now available on T-Mobile.
The LG K30 is actually not a new phone. It is the same device as the LG K10 released in the first quarter of the year but with a new name and some little differences.
The phone has a 5.3-inch HD screen and is powered by a Snapdragon 425 processor. It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage (16GB on the K10). A single 13MP sensor with PDAF sits on the back and there is a 5MP selfie camera.
The LG K30 has a 2880mAh battery with support for fast charging. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the rear of the device. It also runs Android 7.1 Nougat and not Marshmallow like the K10
While the specs are entry level, the price is a bit on the high side. T-Mobile is asking for $225 for the device or $9/month for 24 months. It is available only in Aurora Black.
If you want an alternative device, there is the Nokia 6 (2017) priced at $230 on Amazon. It works on T-Mobile too and offers a lot more features for $5 extra.
