Brittany BishopFeb 23, 2017

Last year, India's telecom ministry had announced that, 2017 onwards, smartphones can't be sold without a "panic button" for emergencies. A 13-megapixel snapper is placed on the back of the LG K10 (2017), and a 5-megapixel shooter can be found on the front side of this smartphone. LG is also offering the panic button on the rear of the K10 2o17 smartphone which was made mandatory by the Government of India.

Shri. Ravi Shankar Prasad, Union Minister, Communications and IT, Government of India said, "We are consistently working on initiatives to create a safe & conducive environment for citizens of the country through technological excellence". The "panic button" service is proposed to be universal number for various emergency services that would be similar to the '911′ all-in-one emergency service used in America. The LG K10 (2017) sports a 5.3-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display and is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6750 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM and the Mali-T860MP2 GPU. It has a fingerprint scanner on the back.

Other features include a fingerprint scanner, OTG Support, a metallic U-frame for the 7.9mm profile with 2.5D Arc Glass design and the latest Android OS 7.0 with 4GVoLTE and a 2,800mAh battery. Early on Wednesday, LG launched the K10 (2017) smartphone in India. LG is bundling a free smart cover along with the handset, in addition to unlimited audio and video downloads from Hungama for a period of 45 days. The phone is priced at INR 13,990.

In the camera department, there is also a 13MP rear camera with f.2/2 aperture, autofocus, and LED flash that can record videos at Full HD resolution. Connectivity options include LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, microUSB 2.0 and NFC.

The dimensions of K10 are 148.7×75.3×7.9mm and it weighs 142 grams.

The LG K10 (2017) is the most premium smartphone in the upgraded K-series. The K10 2017, however, was launched in the world market when the company had launched the LG K3, K4 and K8.

"We are very optimistic that consumers will appreciate this product", said Kim Ki Wan, Managing Director - LG Electronics India.
