LG has confirmed its first all–metal handset, the LG Zero, is set to launch here in the UK, after an initial release in Taiwan.
The Zero packs in a string of decent, albeit fairly mid–range features, including a 5–inch 1280 x 720 display, a beefy quad-core processor, Android Lollipop and 16GB of internal storage.
There's also microSD support, so you can expand capacity for those times when you really need extra files, tunes and videos about your person.
Around the back are the same rear-mounted buttons seen on LG’s flagship phones, with the result that the Zero's sides are not cluttered with controls.
The cameras take things up a notch, with a 13-megapixel snapper round the back and an eight megapixel effort at the front. The latter means the LG Zero should at least take selfies on a par with fancier rivals such as the iPhone 6s and Samsung Galaxy S6.
But it’s the fact that this is LG’s first all–metal phone is what's really likely to turn heads.
Available in silver and gold finishes, the arrival of the Zero points towards fancier devices being released from LG next year, as well as the migration of the company's hallmark rear-mounted controls to lower-end models.
LG hasn't announced a concrete release date for the LG Zero's arrival on shop shelves, but expect it to go on sale before the end of the month.
