LG has officially launched a new affordable Android smartphone for T-Mobile and MetroPCS in the United States, called LG Aristo. The phone offers decent specs for the price but will run on the Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box.
The Aristo comes with a 5-inch in-cell display with 720 x 1280 HD resolution, which give it a pixel density of 294 PPI.

Powering the smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 quad-core chipset clocked at 1.4 GHz, which is packed with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expandable via a micro SD card slot.
At the back is a 13MP main camera with an LED flashlight and support for 1080p video capture. The Aristo sports a 5MP front-facing unit with features such as Gesture Shot, Selfie Light, Auto Shot, and image editor for taking good selfie shots. Other connectivity features of the handset includes Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n wireless, 4G LTE with VoLTE capability, Bluetooth 4.2 Low Energy, Wi-Fi Direct, USB Tethering, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, and a fingerprint scanner placed at the back, below the rear LED flash.
