Gizchina News of the week

The small Android smartphone packs a 5-inch 720p LCD display, Snapdragon 425 chipset (quad core @ 1.4GHz CPU) and 2GB of RAM. It also offers up to 16GB of storage, expandable via a microSD card, a 13MPixels main camera and a 5MP selfie cam.

The X300 also offers 4G LTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and NFC support, but still has an obsolete microUSB 2.0 port on the lower side. On a positive note, though, the phone runs Android 7.0 Nougat, but still packs a small 2500 mAh battery that may not be enough for heavy duty use.

According to LG, the LG X300 is priced at KRW 253,000 (~$220) but there is no mention on availability in the press release and neither was it mentioned if the phone will be sold outside of Korea.

    $220 for a 720p phone in 2017?

    More of the same from LG. A company that has had abysmal phone sales over the last year because of terrible decisions. LG needs to clean house of it’s mobile division or it won’t be around much longer.
