Earlier this week, LG unveiled its G6 flagship smartphone at the MWC 2017 expo in Barcelona. Now, two new affordable smartphones are about to hit the shelves very soon. Codenamed LG-M320H and LG-X230Z, the smartphones have been certified by the FCC in the US. While the LG-M320H is new to the rumors mills, we have already heard about the X230Z model before.

What s sad is that the listing doesn’t reveal anything related to the phone’s specs, but we do have some info thanks to the fact that the X230 was listed on Geekbench five months back. The letter H and Z at the end of the both smartphones hint at the region where they will be announced. Nevertheless, both the devices are expected to run on Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system, which would be a bit disappointing since the latest smartphones run Nougat out-of-the-box.
The LG X230 will likely be powered by a MediaTek MT6737M SoC, paired with 1GB of RAM. The handset was recently spotted at Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) for certification, which has fueled speculation that the handset is close to official launch. While the Bluetooth SIG listing did not reveal any specifications, it did reveal that the existence of the LG X230.

Rumors in the past also suggested that an entry-level LG X230 will be announced alongside the flagship LG G6 smartphone, which clearly did not happen. While there is no information related to the pricing and availability, the smartphone passing through Geekbench, Bluetooth and FCC certification, hints that the launch could be around the corner.
Talking about LG s flagship smartphone of the year, the G6, it features a 5.7-inch QHD+ display packed in a 5.2-inch form factor. Running at a resolution of 2880×1440 pixels, the display has an aspect ratio of 18:9. It also supports HDR for watching content from Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, something that we are likely to see on upcoming smartphones too. Sony also launched its flagship smartphone – Xperia XZ Premium with support for HDR, and other manufacturers are likely to follow the suit.
Under the hood, the LG G6 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 chipset coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The smartphone is fuelled by a 3,300mAh, and on the software front, the LG G6 runs Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box with UX 6.0 layered above. ALSO READ: LG G6 hands-on and first impressions
