Metal-made LG Zero (aka LG Class) launches in more markets starting this week
Already available in South Korea and Italy, the LG Zero is now being launched in more markets around the world. LG just announced that the handset will reach stores this week in Taiwan, with other countries from Europe, Asia, and Latin America to follow.

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.

This is PhoneArena. A place where trolls come to butthurt people and where they get their ass burnt up by people like NoToFanboys and Meanest.

Literally everything you said was inaccurate. That's not a good way to be credible at all.

LG needs to run with this design language for their premium phone. I think its a good design. Probably feels solid as well.
