SEOUL, Sept. 17 (Korea Bizwire) – As budget smartphones with metal enclosures like SK Telecom’s LUNA and Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy A series gain popularity, LG Electronics is expected to join the market of low-cost smartphones with a metal body.
The company posted a photo on its Facebook page hinting that it would introduce a new smartphone soon.
With the title of “Something New, Sep. 21,” the photo shows the back cover of a thin smartphone with an aluminum body. The back cover key, symbolizing LG smartphone, is also applied to the new smartphone.
According to industry watchers, the product is the first LG smartphone with an embedded battery. It is expected that LG gave up the detachable battery format to develop the thin smartphone.
The product is expected to be rolled out on September 21, and its price will be similar to or lower than the LUNA (449,900 won) and the Galaxy A (484,000 won).
