LG has a long history of making some great flagship smartphones, and the newest G7+ ThinQ is no exception, but its budget offerings are (and have been) mostly average. However, the company still likes launching affordable smartphones every now and then, with Candy being the latest. The highlight of the LG Candy is its interchangeable back covers. The smartphone comes with three extra covers in different colors – blue, silver, and gold.

Priced at Rs 6,699, the new LG Candy is strictly aimed at first-time smartphone buyers. According to a report by The Mobile Indian, the budget smartphone is powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core chipset, paired with 2GB of RAM. There’s also 16GB of internal storage, with support for microSD cards of up to 32GB. The 4G-capable Candy sports a 5-inch HD display with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels and runs Android 7.1.2 Nougat.
