It appears that there is an inflow of mid-range smartphones arriving with a premium feel, thanks to the luxurious appeal of the chassis that these devices are adorned with. The latest such handset to join in the race is the LG Zero.
Fans may take delight in the fact that the manufacturer has finally unveiled a smartphone with a full metal form factor. According to report on Tech Radar, the LG Zero has an “Arc Glass” design, boasting of a solid aluminum casing which gives it a sleeker look.
This mid-range smartphone features a 5-inch display with 1,280 x 720 resolution and is powered by 1.2GHz quad-core chip and 1.5GB RAM. The storage on the device reads out to be 16GB and it sports a micro-SD card slot. It is fueled by a 2,050mAh battery and runs Android Lollipop. Fans wanting to get hold of this device could probably keep their fingers crossed in the hope that this may receive a Marshmallow update.
While that remains to be seen, the aspect that stands-out on this mid-range handset is its 13MP primary snapper and an 8MP secondary camera for clicking those selfies. The snappers are right in-line with the ones on the company’s current flagship – LG G4. So those wanting a good camera on a device that sits somewhere in the middle of the pack, may want to check this option out. The handset will come dipped in shades of silver and gold for buyers to choose from.
As per Engadget, the device will become available in Taiwan starting this week, and then will gradually be rolled out to markets in Asia, Europe and Latin America. The handset will be dubbed as the LG Class when it lands in Germany, Korea, Russia or Singapore.
The details on the pricing in the respective regions will become available once the LG Zero begins shipping. Keep coming back to check for updates.
