The LG Ray is aimed at “key global 3G markets.”
LG has announced a new smartphone called the LG Ray, aimed at markets like Latin America where 4G networks are yet to make any inroads. To be released this week in the CIS region, the LG Ray is a mishmash of low-end and mid-range specs inside a metallic build, with the 3,000 mAh battery being the notable feature here as it should be able to last really long for a device with just 3G support and an HD display.
The display is 5.5 inches in size, and the phone is powered by an unnamed octa-core processor clocked at 1.4GHz. There’s 1GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and an 8-megapixel front camera. he Ray runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and LG has built in a couple of features found on its more high-end G series of phones, including a gesture mode for selfies.
The LG Ray will be available in silver, gold and Titan Black, though the Korean manufacturer isn’t saying how much consumers will have to pay for the device. The focus on 3G markets mean the US, Europe and most other markets might not see a launch.
