LG has officially launched a brand new Android smartphone dubbed the “LG Class.” This handset, which comes with a metal build, is a mid-range device.

As far as the LG Class specifications go, the device features a 5.0-inch display and 720 x 1,280 pixels screen resolution. This display combination translates to a modest pixel density of 294 ppi. Design-wise, this budget-friendly handset comes with a "slim metal" build, along with marginally curved edges.

Under the hood, the LG Class comes powered by a quad-core (Qualcomm Snapdragon 410) processor and backed by 2 GB of RAM. On the software front, it runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, straight out of the box. Apart from the standard connectivity options, the device also supports LTE and NFC.

Speaking of size, the LG Class comes with a dimension of 142 x 71.8 x 7.4 mm and it weighs 147 grams. There is also a 16 GB built-in storage space with microSD card slot for further expansion of up to 2 TB.

When it comes to camera specification, the device has a solid 13-megapixel rear-facing sensor and a generous 8-megapixel front-facing snapper for selfies. Notably, the same 8-megapixel sensor as a selfie-clicker was last seen in the flagship LG G4. In addition, a modest 2,050 mAh non-removable battery unit keeps the lights on.

LG will release this handset in Gold, Silver and Blue-Black colors. The LG Class price, on the other hand, has reportedly been set at an equivalent of $339. This smartphone will hit the store shelves of Korea sometime in September, Phone Arena reported.

However, at this point, there is no official confirmation available to ascertain the release date outside Korea.
