What Evan Blass revealed almost three months ago has finally come to pass: a new LG entry-level smartphone is making its way to T-Mobile in the US. Right after LG G7’s announcement, the handset has been spotted on a support page of the known U.S. carrier, meaning that the launch should be near. From the specs and renders surfaced, we can easily understand that it will carry a very affordable price tag. The handset has appeared with a full metal unibody design in Black color.
It has pretty thick bezels and a fingerprint reader on the rear side which doubles as a power key. So there is only a volume rocker on the side of the phone. LG K30 has a 5.3-inch display with the classic 16:9 aspect ratio. The resolution is not mentioned but we believe it will either be HD or even lower than 720p. Among the internal components, there is a quad-core chipset running at a max frequency of 1.4 GHz. The name of the SoC is not mentioned in the specs sheet, but judging from the clock frequency and basing on the latest devices released by LG, we should be talking about Qualcomm Snapdragon 425.
The SoC is supported by 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage which is possible to expand with a micro SD up to 2 TB. LG K30 has a single rear camera with a resolution of 13 MP and a front snapper with a 5 MP resolution. On the connectivity side, it supports Wi-Fi N, Wi-Fi Calling 2.0, NFC, Bluetooth 4.2 and VoLTE. The battery has a capacity of 2880 mAh (which will be enough for a long battery life in every scenario if well-optimized) and it can be charged through a USB-C port. According to the listing, the battery will be able to last up to 13 hours on a single charge. The device still runs Nougat.
