LG has announced Band Play, the company’s latest smartphone in Korea. It has a 5-inch HD display, is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 SoC and runs on Android 5.1 (Lollipop). It has a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, Laser Auto Focus and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. It also has 4G LTE connectivity.
It has a powerful loudspeaker with 1W (watt) output that promises a clear sound. It has “focus mode” for teenagers that helps to ease their tension and improve concentration by playing relaxing therapy music without the disturbance of phone calls or notifications, since data and Wi-Fi are turned off. When you get a call it automatically rejects it by sending a message. It comes with LG G4’s Quad Beat 3 headset in the box.
