This 5.5-inch mid-range handset has premium features and retails for roughly $230 USD in Russia, but will reach Latin America soon as well.

LG has just unveiled a new mid-range Android handset, namely the LG Ray. According to the official press release, this 5.5-inch device begins its rollout to the CIS region this week, while Latin America will follow soon. It packs "a stunning metallic design" and features a generous 8 MP front camera for some of the best selfie capabilities offered by smartphones in its price range.

LG Ray has the following highlights:

  • Processor: 1.4 GHz octa-core (MediaTek MT6592M, according to third parties)
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB RAM; 16 GB eMMC internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch multitouch with 1,280X720 pixels 
  • Cameras: 8 MP front, 13 MP back
  • Connectivity: 3G dual-SIM, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, micro USB 2.0, GPS
  • Operating system: Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Weight: 0.35 pounds
  • Battery: 3000 mAh (removable)
  • Colors: silver, gold, titan black

Although it is not a high-end device, the LG Ray comes with features inherited from the G series, including Gesture Shot for an easy way to take selfies. Its price in Russia is around $230 USD while pricing for other markets will be announced locally before launch. Unfortunately, the gold and titan black colors will only be available starting in January 2016.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
