The Aristo 2 houses a IPS In-Cell display that measures 5 inches and delivers an HD resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is fueled by 1.4 GHz quad-core processor. The exact name of the chipset is not available on the official listing of Aristo 2 on the official site of MetroPCS. However, previous reports had suggested that it features Snapdragon 425 chipset. A 2,140mAh battery that offers a talk time of 17 hours powers the smartphone.
The chipset is supported by 2 GB of RAM. The handset includes a native storage of 16 GB. The external storage slot can support up to 32 GB of microSD card. It has a rear-mounted camera of 13-megapixel that is enabled with features such as LED flash, PDAF and full HD video recording. The front-facing camera of 5-megapixel comes with features like Auto Shot and Gesture Shot. The LG Aristo 2 comes loaded with Android 7.0 Nougat.
The backside of the phone features a fingerprint scanner. The selfie camera supports facial recognition. Hence, it can be also used for unlocking the smartphone. It carries support for Wi-Fi calling apart from 4G LTE. The other connectivity features available on the phone include 3.5mm audio jack, microUSB and Bluetooth.
The actual price of the LG Aristo 2 is $140. However, the carrier is offering an instant discount of $30 along with a mail-in rebate of $50 which brings down the cost of the phone to $60. The smartphone is available for free to customers who trade-in their old phone and avail an unlimited LTE plan.
