LG has launched a metal-clad Android smartphone named the LG Zero in Europe. The Zero is essentially the LG Class smartphone that was announced in South Korea in September, however the company chose to launched it under a different name in Europe. This is a camera centric smartphone with features that are suited for a mid-range smartphone. In Italy, the phone has been launched for €299 (which is approximately Rs 21,220).
As far as the specifications and features of the phone are concerned, the Class, dubbed as Zero in Europe, dons an aluminum chassis to make it look like a premium smartphone. It features a 5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixels, and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with quad-core and 64-bit architecture. The chipset is supported with 16GB of expandable internal memory. The only major change in terms of specs between the LG Zero and the LG Class is the RAM space. While the LG Class has 2GB of RAM, the LG Zero comes with only 1.5GB of RAM.
Speaking of software, it runs Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box. In the camera department, it sports a 13MP rear snapper coupled with an 8MP front-facing camera.
In terms of connectivity options, the phone supports LTE connectivity, and other standard options like Bluetooth, Wi-FI, GPS and AGPS. The phone is powered by a 2050mAh battery.
As for its India launch, there is no clue if the company will launch the smartphone in India.
