South Korean multinational electronics company LG has launched The LG Ray, a new smartphone that features a metal design accompanied with “best-in-class features.”
Speaking about its design, the LG Ray carries the company’s iconic rear control button setup below the rear camera and the speaker grille is situated at the bottom corner of the device’s rear panel.
The smartphone measures 152.5 x 76.4 x 9.3 mm, weighs 158 grams and runs on Android’s Lollipop operating system.
The LG Ray comes in a 5.5-inch HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution display and is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core processor further clubbed with 1GB RAM.
The phone’s processor speed is higher than that of most contemporary phones and is expected to execute programs seamlessly. However, its 1GB RAM is a draw back and may cause lagging when multitasking.
The LG Ray houses 16GB of internal memory which can be expanded via a microSD card to an unspecified limit.
The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It will be made available in both single-SIM and dual-SIM versions.
LG Ray however misses out on 4G LTE support but it is backed by a powerful 3000mAh removable battery.
Connectivity options of the handset include 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB 2.0.
“Customers in 3G markets continue to be a priority for LG so we will continue to develop new products with these consumers in mind,”
Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said.
“No matter the country or the device, every LG customers will receive a unique user experience with a balance of design, performance and value,”
The LG Ray will soon be reaching Commonwealth countries such as Russia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazaksthan and so on followed by Latin American countries.
The launch date and details for India and other Asian markets aren’t out yet. Its price is also yet to be announced.
The LG Ray will be available in Silver, Gold, and Titan Black colour variants. However, the Gold and Titan Black variants will be arriving in January next year.
