LG Ray with 5.5-inch HD screen, octa-core CPU launched

The LG Ray has been unveiled, with the new mid-range offering focusing on 3G markets across the world. The brand is starting the handset’s roll-out in CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) locations first, followed by Latin American regions under the name LG Zone.

There’s no word on whether the LG Ray will hit Indian markets any time soon. Given the country’s increasing 3G adoption rate, it’s not a stretch to assume the phone might find its way here in the future. The device sports a metallic design and a 5.5-inch display which showcases its visuals with a resolution of 720 x 1280p and a pixel density of 267ppi.

Coming to its photography capabilities, the Ray houses a 13MP rear camera with LED flash. Selfies and video calls can be taken through an 8MP front-facing snapper, which comes equipped with Gesture Shot. The feature was first seen in the company’s flagship G series. It allows users to click photos by opening and closing their palm in front of the secondary lens.
