Metal-made LG Class reportedly headed to AT&T

Metal-made LG Class reportedly headed to AT&T
Officially announced last week, the LG Class is currently available only in South Korea, LG's home country. Presented as a "premium" handset for users on a budget, the Class is made out of metal - a rarity for LG -, runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and sports a 5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels.

While LG didn't say if it intends to release the Class outside of South Korea, we're now hearing that the handset should, at some point, be available in the US. More exactly, according to @evleaks (who is usually right when it comes to unofficial information about smartphones), the new LG device is headed to AT&T. There is no word on exactly when AT&T is planning to start selling the Class, but we assume it's going to happen in the coming months.

Besides Android Lollipop and a 5-inch 720p display, the LG Class features LTE connectivity, a 13 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, a 1 W speaker, 2 GB of RAM, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 16 GB of storage space, and microSD card support. The smartphone is 7.4mm-thin, and comes with a 2050 mAh battery.

In South Korea, the LG Class costs about $339 off contract. However, smartphone prices are usually higher there compared to the US market, so we're expecting the handset to be cheaper at AT&T.

The LG Alpha...I can see the LG G5 take design cues from this and also the V10.

Cheaper on att? I doubt that the G4 is 720 at att and you can buy unlocked in the 400's from amazon global models.

The specs on this phone sound exactly like the specs on the ZTE Warp Elite except the Warp Elite has a much better battery life (3000 mAh) and retails for $179.00 with a cheaper monthly plan than AT&T can offer. So this this phone has already been outdone before it's even been released.

More V10 info please. If it's got the G4 camera, I'm interested.

Taking notes from Samsung's book huh LG? (Samsung Galaxy Alpha), I wouldn't be surprised if it was only a AT&T exclusive.
