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.

LG has teased a new smartphone that is going to be released on 21 September. The device features a metallic design and it’s called LG Class.

LG Electronics has released a photo of a new smartphone in Twitter. The device looks different than the previous leaks of the LG V10 so we are pretty sure this is a different phone.

The photo above shows an advertisement banner for the device and reveals the name, Class. We have very little information about the device at the moment but we will keep you posted as the release happens on 21 September.

LG is expected to release the previously rumored V10 on 1 October. The V10 is rumored to feature very similar specification to the LG G4. LG has previously teased a ‘super flagship’ coming later this year and the V10 doesn’t meet the expectations we have after that kind of statement. So, the Class might be it.
