As I know as a complete typography beginner, it's a linear, sans serif Grotesk font type. But that's all I can say for the moment.

Classification: 

Anyone with an idea of what this type might be called?

Does your sample has something to do with Japan or Japanese fonts?
I'm saying this because -strangely enough- the only glyphs I have found to look close enough to your sample, belong to the roman (latin) counterpart of some Japanese fonts.
Look at the image bellow.

#1 is your sample

#2 is the Latin counterpart of many Medium Bold font families starting with "A-OTF xxx" by Japan foundry [[http://luc.devroye.org/fonts-27267.html|Morisawa & Company LTD]]
