LG has announced the Class smartphone they teased last week. Premium looking metal body has mid-tier hardware inside.
LG Class packs a 5″ 720p IPS LCD display, Snapdragon 410 SoC, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. The 13MP rear camera and an 8MP shooter on the front should be able to produce decent pictures. The battery capacity is only 2050mAh.
The metal body measures at 142 x 71.8 x 7.4mm in size and 147 grams in weight. The front glass is curved and marketed as a 2.5D glass. The bezels and the camera bump are quite large. Color options are black, gold and silver and the price in Korea equals around $340. Availability is unknown.
The LG Class competes directly against Samsung’s Galaxy A series smartphones with the metal design, affordable price range and the small battery. The price range is very demanding. There’s Motorola and OnePlus options to compete but the Class has the premium metal design on its side.
