Walmart sells 10-dollar smartphone

Walmart sells 10-dollar smartphone

The US retailer Walmart has started selling what could easily be the world’s cheapest smartphone. Thanks to collaboration with LG, Walmart customers can now purchase the Lucky LG16 handset, which costs just USD 9.82.

Yes, you read that right – the device can be yours for just USD 9.82, given you live in the USA and have access to a local Walmart store. But how much smartphone do you get for just under 10 bucks?

Well, the harsh reality is not that much. The Lucky LG16 is likely the world’s cheapest smartphone but it is also one of the slowest too. The device has a 3.8-inch touchscreen display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, 4 GB of internal storage that can be expanded with a 32 GB microSD card and a 3 MP rear camera. In addition to this the device has Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity as well as Bluetooth 4.0. Finally, the device, which runs Android 4.4 KitKat has a built-in MP3 player.

As you can see the Lucky LG16 is nothing special when compared to a modern, albeit much more expensive smartphone, but it can be an ideal communicator for people who do not need that much mobile power. In fact given the price the deal does not seem that bad, which is the reason why currently Walmart has sold out all Lucky LG16 handsets it ever had (maybe more are on the way) but the apparent success of the device might mean more cheap and affordable smartphones are on the way and this is always great news.
