LG AKA smartphone with Mood cases lands in Taiwan, India may be next

Korean tech giant LG seems to be working overtime to please its fans across the world. The company has now launched its AKA smartphone outside the confines of South Korea. The handset, whose primary target is youth, was introduced in its home market late last year.

The launch of the Aka handset comes along with its now famed Mood cases. The handsets are mid-range and in the Indian currency, the handsets will be priced somewhere around Rs 20000.

But the handset will still take some more time before it actually lands in the Indian market. The first to get the handset will be Taiwan where the LG’s AKA will be introduced before the end of the month. The expansion of the handset beyond Korea seems to indicate towards the fact that its launch in the Indian market will not be very far off.
