LG announced a new handset exclusively for Korea. The LG X300 falls under the mid-range segment and is priced at KRW 253,000 ($220).
Nothing so extraordinary, with just basic hardware that exists in pretty much every smartphone in use today. It has a 5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) screen and is backed by a 2500 mAh battery.
Having said that, there are two real-standouts worth noting. One is the operating system being the latest Android 7.0 Nougat and the other has to do with the In-Cell Touch IPS curved glass display.
The entire handset is powered by the 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 425 SoC coupled with 2GB of RAM. There is 16GB storage that is expandable via microSD card. Weighing at 142 grams, the device has a fingerprint sensor at the back. And for photos it is equipped with a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front shooter.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.2, GPS, and NFC. There will be two color variants – Silver and Dark Blue.
Though the device is currently on sale in Korea, LG did reveal that it would introduce the handset in other countries. However, we don’t have the pricing or release date at the moment. Stay tuned to Gadgets Post for more updates.
