LG’s first metal phone leaks out in hands-on photos

LG is finally ready to announce a metal phone, though it’s not the flagship powerhouse you might be hoping for. Instead, the company appears to be prepping a mid-range handset called the LG Class, and today we’re getting a detailed look at the rumored smartphone.

These new hands-on images from UnderKG only show a mock-up of the metal device, though it’s still the best leak we’ve seen so far. The device sports a pretty sleek design, with buttons in the back and a slightly raised camera. It may be a bit bulkier than what we’re used to from LG, though it’s possible the final handset will be more compact.

One final press image appears to confirm the device’s name along with a 5-inch display. The LG Class looks a lot bigger than that though, and a previous leak claimed we could get a 5.7-inch display with a 1080p resolution. We’re guessing LG will go with a larger screen, though we should know for sure later this month when the device makes its official debut.

Other rumored specs for the LG Class include a Snapdragon 615 processor, a 12-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. That certainly doesn’t add-up to a flagship phone, though LG is likely eyeing the mid-range market with this device. We just hope the company has plans to eventually rollout a high-end metal handset as well.
