Previously seen in GFXBench benchmarks, the alleged LG H740, has now received a launch date. Seen as a mid-range phablet, as far as specs show in the info section of its benchmarking, LG could look at this to be the successor to its 5.9-inch G Pro 2.
Rumours have mentioned that the Korean company will name the H740 as the LG Class, and the company’s social media channels have been actively teasing an announcement on the aforementioned date. Although, the specs don’t really deserve a second glance, it’ll be fully constructed in metal, which could mean LG is changing its stance on its removable battery and plastic bodies for a more premium feel and look.
Some things still remain as brand trademarks; seeing the button placements haven’t moved from the back but there seems to be a thin line that looks like a speaker grill, now nearing the top. The device in question will come with ample screen estate, being a phablet sized 5.7-inch FHD (1920 x 1080) screen and carry an assumed Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor.
It’ll also come with 2GB of RAM and possibly 8GB of internal storage (we’re hopeful its expandable). The camera optics of this device could be either a 12 or 13-megapixel sensor on the rear, assisted by a 5-megapixel camera on the front. Seeing that it carries the 615 chipset, it should come with LTE capabilities and will run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop out of the box.
LG has already sent out invites for an event on October the 1st, but that’s likely the V10, so it possibly means that they aren’t placing such an emphasis on their supposed phablet. Still, we’d like to see what happens when it gets released in 4 days.
