Earlier this week, LG unveiled its first metal-clad smartphone, the entry-level LG Class and while the handset hasn’t gone on sale yet, we’re treated to an unboxing and preview of the handset, in 4K nonetheless.

[related_videos title=”LG in video:” align=”left” type=”custom” videos=”639839,634295,630400,625608,616170,614646″]The Class is LG’s first attempt at a metal-clad smartphone and features a 5-inch display with 1280 x 720 pixels resolution and a 2.5D glass panel on top to increase responsiveness. Under the hood, the handset is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, which can be expanded further using a microSD card.

On the back, there’s a 13MP rear camera which LG claim has the premium imaging sensor found in its flagship devices, while the front sports an 8MP selfie camera with a range of features including Gesture Interval Shot, which lets you raise your hand and make a fist in front of the camera to take a selfie. The back also comes with the power and volume keys underneath the camera, like LG’s other handsets, such as the LG G4.

Connectivity wise, the LG Class also comes with LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.1. The LG Class measures 142 x 71.8 x 7.4mm, while at 147 grams weight, it’s certainly manageable in the hand. Like other metal-clad devices, the LG Class has a non-removable battery and the question remains as to whether the 2,050 mAh battery is large enough for normal usage.

What do you think of the LG Class and do you want to see it launch outside of Korea (where it’ll set you back $339 before subsidies)? Let us know your views in the comments below guys!
