While everybody is looking forward to seeing its new flagship, the G6, LG still had some time to launch a new mid-range smartphone, X300, currently available just for its homeland, Korea.
The phone comes with a 5-inch LCD display and rocks a 720p resolution, making it obvious to which users this model is targeted. It includes a Snapdragon 425 chipset, with four cores running at 1.4 GHz, alongside 2 GB of RAM, while the internal storage counts just 16 GB. Fortunately, thanks to the presence of a microSD card slot, you can easily expand the latter.
The camera department of the LG X300 is represented by a 13 MP primary snapper on the back, which sounds very good for a mid-range smartphone, while on the front, we’re looking at a 5 MP selfie unit, just decent for some quality pictures and video chatting.
Moving on, in terms of connectivity you’re getting 4G LTE, as well as Bluetooth 4.2 and an NFC chip. As for the battery, it has a capacity of 2500 mAh, which, despite its reduced capacity, should be enough for one day of intensive use, considering this phone’s rather modest hardware. And you can charge it through a microUSB 2.0 port, since LG doesn’t seem keen on making the move to USB Type-C.
The LG X300 is currently available for KRW 253,000, which is about $220. However, for the moment, there’s no word regarding its availability in other markets, since the press release announcing the launch somehow omitted this relatively important aspect.
