LG teases “something new” for September 21 event, leak suggests it’s the LG Class

LG’s clearly been working on a bunch of new smartphone hardware, and we’re expecting to get a hands-on look at some of its latest at the company’s upcoming October New York event. And while we may have until next month to wait, some markets look like they’re getting an even earlier peek at LG’s newest phones, as the company teases “something new” for a September 21 announcement in South Korea.

That teaser features the metallic-looking handset pictured above, and while LG doesn’t do anything to directly identify the smartphone, separate sources may have already nailed-down an ID.

At least, the phone we see here sure does appear to be a dead ringer for the phone pictured in the in-store advertisement below, presumably captured a little bit in advance of when LG was hoping to go official with the phone’s name.

Besides this identification as the LG Class, we hear that this hardware may actually be the mysterious model LG-H740, whose hardware we just got a quick overview of thanks to some new benchmark data. With a Snapdragon 615, 5.7-inch 1080p screen, and a 12MP camera, the LG Class could be shaping up to be a solid mid-range option.
