LG Ray with 5.5" display rolling out in key 3G markets

LG Ray with 5.5
If you find yourself on a budget and living within the CIS region or Latin America, LG has a brand new value proposition for you: the Ray.

Nestled within a frame made to look like metal, the LG Ray offers a 5.5-inch, 720 x 1280 resolution display, good for a pixel desnity of 267 ppi. System performance is powered by an unnamed, octa-core processor without LTE (just HSPA+ 3G) and 1GB of RAM, while a large, 3,000 mAh cell keeps the lights on. The 158 gram Ray also packs 16GB of expandable storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, and an 8-megapixel selfie snapper. In terms of software, we're looking at Android Lollipop with LG's custom skin on top.

Pricing is yet been revealed, so it remains to be seen if the LG Ray will prove to be worth people's hard-earned monies. While the device is unlikely to end up being particularly expensive, with LG marketing it as "slim" and "metallic" (even though it's 9.8 mm-thick and the back appears to only look like metal), it'll probably bet on looks more than anything to attract consumers.

Yah I like the big screen. I would buy it as my 2nd phone if they got here. But we all know LG is lazy.

Do they really expect people to buy this? 720p res on a big screen, 1GB, no 4G. The only 2 things going for it are the battery and camera.

obviously u haven't been to mexico ? people still have phones like this nothing wrong with that ,not everyone can afford a galaxy s6 or iphone 6 in mexico ,so people buy phones like this. And 3G is fine in mexico still gets the job done i use Telcel and they do have lte in lots of places but when i was on 3G it would still get up to 10 mbps on 3G which worked fine for fb,twitter,youtube ,email.

I think it's awesome. I've always wanted a low end Phablet.

The galaxy A7 is only 6.3 mm thin and weight just 141g. I guess that how far ahead samsung from LG in build and design enginering.
