LG has just announced the X300 smartphone in Korea, and be sure not to confuse it with the LG GX300 of times past. This new LG X300 is a proper smartphone, even if positioned where entry-level meets midrange.
The specsheet starts off with a 5-inch 720p LCD and goes on to include a Snapdragon 425 chipset. Not the snappiest of dragons, the 425 relies on a 1.4GHz quad-core CPU paired with 2GB of RAM. Storage is 16GB, expandable via a microSD card. Imaging is covered by a 13MP primary shooter on the back, and a 5MP selfie cam.
On the connectivity front, you'd be getting 4G LTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC. The X300 comes with a microUSB 2.0 port, though - LG isn't too quick to adopt Type-C across the model range. On a positive note, though, the phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat. Not so great is battery capacity - only 2,500mAh, but given the modest hardware it may be just enough.
The LG X300 is priced at KRW 253,000 (a little short of $220). There wasn't info on availability in the press release, though, and neither was it mentioned if the phone will be sold outside of Korea.
