LG’s new metal-made “Class” Android smartphone was officially announced last week and is now only launched in South Korea, but will it be released outside of the country? The answer seems to be yes, as @evleaks just revealed its launch to AT&T in the US some time soon.
While there is no word on when AT&T will start selling the LG Class, “soon” is probably a good guess. The carrier should offer the new handset for a lower price, compared to the Korean market. In South Korea, the LG Class costs around $340 off contract.
The LG Class runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and features a unibody metal construction. Other than that, the handset comes with a 5-inch 720p IPS display (720 x 1280 pixels), 13MP rear camera, 8MP front-facing camera, quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked at 1.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, microSD card support, and a 2050mAh battery.
