LG has become very selective in launching new Smartphones these days, while the last major flagship device was the LG V10 that’s launched in a few countries today we have some news from Russia. The brand has debuted a new Mid-range phone dubbed as LG RAY, that comes with a 5.5″ Display with a 720p HD resolution. Clearly something that’s not going to offer a great viewing experience but for someone who wishes to buy a large display Smartphone.

The phone follows the same design language from LG where you have the volume rockers & the Power button on the back side that we had seen in all their recently launched devices. Along with this it offers you the secured knock code feature that is a unique way of securing your phone. The device is powered with a 3000 mAh capacity battery that can easily last you a day or may be more because its under powered & does not need a lot of juice. In terms of the hardware the phone comes with a Octa core 1.4 GHz MediaTek MT6592M chipset, along with 1GB of RAM & 16 GB of Internal Storage, that can be expanded upto 32 GB.

LG Russia Market MapThe availability of this phone is only in russia in the offline stores & its going to be available in Black & Gold color. In the Camera department it comes with a 13 MP rear camera & a 8 MP Front camera that supports Full HD 1080P Video recording.

The device is launched at a price of 14990 rubels that roughly translates to USD 232 (Rs 15,200) pointing that this clearly is a mid-range priced phone. A quick Comparison of the LG RAY with LG G4 Stylus, shows quite a few similarities between both the devices that could hint that this could be a similar variant of the phone except the major differences being the larger display & snapdragon processor. The G4 Stylus has not been a hit world wide when compared to the LG G4, but that’s not stopping LG from launching similar models in different markets.
