LG has introduced a new budget smartphone in South Korea called X2. Priced at 198,000 Korean Won, which roughly translates to Rs 12,200, the smartphone will be offered in Aurora Black color variant. However, there is no word on whether or not the smartphone will be released in India.
One of the key highlights of the smartphone is the ‘Auto Shot’ feature that automatically recognizes faces when clicking selfies. There is also a ‘Quick Share’ feature that allows you to share photos instantly using messages or social networks. Otherwise, there are isn’t much to talk about the smartphone.

LG X2 specifications and features
The smartphone features a 5-inch HD display (720x1280pixels), which is slightly outdated compared to the current trends. Smartphones in its price range, such as the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 or the Honor 9 Lite, to name a few, come with full view displays with 18:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, but LG hasn’t mentioned anything about the chipset.
The SoC is paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB onboard storage, and a microSD card slot for further expansion is also present. In the photography department, the smartphone comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, and a 5-megapixel front camera.
Connectivity options on the LG X2 include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11n, GPS and Bluetooth. To keep things ticking, the smartphone is fuelled by a 2,500mAh battery. In the software department, it is disappointing to see the X2 run on Android 7.1.2 Nougat, with no word on Oreo or Android P update.
