LG X300 is the latest member to join the growing entry-level smartphone offerings from the South Korean tech company as it looks to catch up with its counterpart, Samsung.
The phone is without a doubt full of style and LG says that it will be sold through all three major carriers in South Korea – U+, T World and Olleh – with a price of 253,000 Won, which is about $217.
At this point in time, many LG fans are waiting for the launch of the flagship LG G6, but the Korean tech company has more plans than that the G6, according to the look of things. You will for love the design of the new LG X300 and given the even more attractive price tag that LG has given the phone, this is one handset to consider for those in Korea and are after a budget phone.
There are 5 inches of display with a resolution of 720p. According to the company, the LG X300 has a curved front glass, but this is just hard to spot from the pictures, meaning the curve should probably be subtle. The same front panel also comes with a 5MP snapper that should deliver great selfies and video calling experiences. As for the main camera, you get a 13MP shooter that comes with a LED flash. Just below the camera, you’ll find a fingerprint scanner – surprised huh! LG says that the rear has some tiny patterns that will aid with the grip, which means you don’t have to worry about the phone slipping from your tiny hand.
Like many other entry-level phones, the LG X300 has a removable back which when removed, it reveals a 2500mAh battery unit that should be enough to get you through the day on a single charge. Under the hood, the stylish X300 has a Snapdragon 425 processor to run the show. This is paired with a RAM of 2GB and the storage option should only be a 16GB unit, but there is room for microSD card expansion.
In terms of software, the LG X300 follows in the steps of LG V20 in shipping with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. This entry-level smartphone will be available in South Korea starting January 18th via U+, T World, and Olleh but there is no word on if the phone will be available outside the Asian country. We’ll be here to let you know if and when it does!
