LG Class Goes Full Metal (But No Guts) on the Cheap Michael Kwan September 22, 2015 News The classy thing to do with your premium smartphone these days is to wrap it up in a metal body. We saw this with the HTC One series. We see this with the metal frame found on Samsung’s flagships. And now LG is offering the all metal treatment with a phone called the LG Class. Let’s keep it classy. From the outside, this almost has all the makings of a premium kind of smartphone. It’s a metal-clad smartphone with the now standard candybar form factor and slim profile. Unfortunately, the profile isn’t the only thing that’s slim on the LG Class; the specs are kinda skinny too. You only get a Snapdragon 412 to go along with a 5-inch 720p display. Other specs include the 2GB of RAM, LTE, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, 16GB storage, microSD slot and 2050 mAh battery. The cameras sound pretty decent with a 13MP shooter on the rear and an impressive 8MP selfie cam on the front. Despite its outward appearance, the specs on the LG Class are entry-level to mid-range at best. The pricing puts it in roughly the same range as the LG G4 Vigor here in Canada, except the LG Class looks like it could be exclusive to LG’s home market of South Korea. If you happen to be out in Seoul, you can find it for roughly the equivalent of $339. That’s relatively cheap for a metal phone, but a little spendy for a phone with those kinds of specs.
