LG appears set to slash prices of two of its mid-range smartphones in India, the L80 Dual and L90 Dual. The lowered prices were posted by an established Mumbai-based retailer, Mahesh Telecom, but have not been confirmed by the South Korean company.
The retailer posted the new prices on Twitter, claiming that the LG L80 Dual will now be available at Rs. 11,999, while the L90 Dual will now retail at Rs. 13,499. The retailer further claimed that the new prices for both the LG smartphones will be effective from November 15.
It’s worth noting that the new prices may not be effective on the company’s official India site; though some e-commerce websites are offering the LG L80 Dual and L90 Dual at around the new prices. On Flipkart, the LG L80 Dual is available at Rs. 11,899 and the L90 Dual at Rs. 13,489.
Notably, LG’s India site is still showing the old prices for both L-series phones, and it is unclear how many unofficial price drops the two smartphones have undergone in the period since launch.
LG had back in May launched the L80 Dual smartphone in India at Rs. 17,500. Meanwhile, the LG L90 Dual was launched in India in March at Rs. 19,000.
In September, various LG smartphones received significant price cuts in India. LG’s flagship smartphone for 2014, the LG G3, was said to have received a price cut of Rs. 5,000.
Other LG smartphones that were reported to receive price cuts included the LG L60 Dual, which was said to sport a new price of Rs. 7,300 (earlier price of Rs. 9,000); the LG L70 Dual was said to sport a new price of Rs. 10,499 (launched at Rs. 15,000), and the LG F70 a new price of Rs. 13,499 (launched at Rs. 18,499).
