LG just ahead of its G4 flagship launch on Tuesday has made the LG Magna available to buy in India at Rs. 16,500. The smartphone was launched globally during MWC 2015 in February along with the LG Joy, the LG Leon, and the LG Spirit.
While the smartphone has both 3G and 4G LTE Cat. 4 network variants, the 3G variant has been launched in India, as per the company page listing. At the time of launch, LG had said the Magna carries "premium design elements and user experience" which until now have only been seen in the company's premium smartphones, with features such as Gesture Shot and Glance View.
The dual-SIM supporting LG Magna (First Impressions) features a 5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) resolution curved display with a pixel density of 294ppi and a 16 million colour gamut. It also sports a slightly curved display, which is curved with a 3000mm radius, apart from a gentle curve for easy gripping.
