LG Class becomes official with slim metal case, mid-range specs

Just as previously teased, today LG made a new smartphone official in South Korea. It’s called LG Class, and for a while we thought it would be a mid-range phablet. Mid-range it is, but size-wise it’s just a 5-incher.

The Class features a unibody metal construction, which, when paired with its specs, reminds us a little bit of Samsung’s Galaxy A series of handsets.

The LG Class comes in three colors – gold, silver, and black. It has a 5-inch 720p IPS touchscreen with 2.5D curved glass, a 13 MP rear camera with LED flash, an 8 MP selfie snapper, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and a 2,050 mAh battery.

It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 410 chipset, boasting a 1.2 GHz quad-core Cortex-A53 CPU. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Its dimensions are 142 x 71.8 x 7.4 mm, and it weighs 147g.

The price in South Korea has been set at KRW 399,300, which amounts to approximately $338 or €301 at the current exchange rates. It’s still unclear if LG plans on bringing the Class to other markets in the future.
