Metal-made LG Zero (aka LG Class) launches in more markets starting this week
Called LG Class in Korea, Germany, Russia and Singapore, the LG Zero is a mid-range device that runs Android 5.1 Lollipop (most likely upgradeable to Android 6.0 Marshmallow).
According to LG, the smartphone has a "full metal body" and aims to offer "premium features at a competitive price point." However, apart from the metal design, there aren't too many premium features here. For example, the handset comes with a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, and only 1.5 GB of RAM (although the Korean version has 2 GB). Also included are LTE, an 8 MP front-facing camera, a 13 MP rear camera, 16 GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2040 mAh battery. The device weighs 146 grams and measures 142 x 71.8 x 7.4 mm.
In Europe, the LG Zero / Class costs €299 (about $316) unlocked. AT&T might be getting ready to launch the smartphone in the US, but LG has yet to confirm this.
