LG has quietly taken the wraps off the all-new LG U. Interestingly, the highlight seems to be the design and specs that are almost similar to the LG Nexus 5X. Priced at KRW 396,000 that translates to approximately Rs 23,000, it is believed to be South Korea exclusive, so far.

Moreover, it will come on its own mobile operator partner called LG Uplus. There is no word on its release in other countries yet, but there is no denying that the 5X was a fairly successful device. The LG U  measures 147.6 x 73.2 x 7.7mm and weighs 135 grams. It will be made available in three colour options - Black, White and Pink.

Coming to the specifications, it seems just like the LG 5X. It has clearly taken design cues from the 5X. On the display front, it sports a 5.2-inch full HD (1080x1920) screen. It runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and unlike the Nexus 5X, gets an octa-core 1.14GHz processor under the hood coupled with 2GB of RAM. However, the exact chipset is not mentioned.

On the camera front, it comes with a 13-megapixel rear snapper, and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It gets 32GB onboard storage that is exandable up to 2TB. The connectivity options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a USB port. A 3000mAh battery completes the package.
