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.
