The smartphone is similar to the LG G4 Stylus and has a 5.5" IPS display, plus an impressive camera setup for its price range.
The LG Ray comes with an 8 megapixel selfie camera and a 13 megapixel rear camera combination, which should keep the keen photographers happy. The smartphone is powered by a 1.4GHz MediaTek MT6592M octa-core processor, comes available with dual-SIM slots and a removable 3,000mAh battery. There’s also Android 5.1 Lollipop on board and a selection of flagship G-series features, including Knock Code unlock and camera Gesture Shot.
The Smartphone’s design keeps up with the familiar LG style. The volume rocker is located on the back just underneath the camera, while brushed look on the back of the phone gives a nice metal look. Although I’m going to assume that it is plastic.
The handset houses 16GB of inbuilt storage, which can be further expanded via a microSD card (unspecified limit). The LG Ray measures 152.5x76.4x9.3mm, weighs 158 grams and is backed by a removable 3000mAh battery. The connectivity options of the smartphone include 3G, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and USB 2.0 connectivity. The device misses out on 4G LTE support.
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. "Customers in 3G markets continue to be a priority for LG so we will continue to develop new products with these consumers in mind," said Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "No matter the country or the device, every LG customers will receive a unique user experience with a balance of design, performance and value," he added. The availability in other regions would be announced when the handset is launched locally. For now, no pricing details have been provided, but it is for sure that the price of the phone would be at a reasonable range.
