While LG may or may not leave the smartphone market soon (there's a lot of conflicting information on that right now), at the moment the company is definitely still in the game.

And so it has launched a new device in India today, the K42. This rugged-looking handset was initially announced back in September of last year, but now it's finally made it to the subcontinent.

So what do you get from the phone? The LG K42 has a 6.6-inch 720x1600 touchscreen, the MediaTek Helio P22 chipset at the helm, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of expandable storage, a 13 MP main rear camera, a 5 MP ultrawide, a 2 MP macro cam, a 2 MP depth sensor, and an 8 MP selfie snapper.
