After a lot of teasers and leaks, LG have finally revealed their brand new G2 smartphone to the world in New York just few hours ago. The new flagship device is said to be the first product to come from LG’s new G series.
Spotting a 5.2-inch display 1920×1080 IPS display with a 423ppi pixel density, the new LG G2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset which features a 2.26GHz quad-core Krait CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. The smartphone also comes with 2GB LPDDR3 RAM that runs at 800MHz and internal storage options of either 16GB or 32GB.
With the support for 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback, the 8.9mm-thick smartphone also features a 13-megapixels rear camera with optical image stabilization as well as a 2.1-megapixels front-facing camera. There is also a 3,000mAh battery to complete LG G2’s hardware package.
As you can see from previous leaked images, one of most unique feature on LG G2 is that there are no front and side buttons on the device as per other smartphones out there. Instead, the device’s volume rocker and power button are all located at the back – just underneath the camera area.
On the software side of the business, the LG G2 runs on Android 4.2.2 out of the box although the company did include a number of their own in-house features such as Answer Me that automatically allow users to answer phone calls once they raised the phone to their ears and Guest Mode which allow G2 owners to restrict what apps that other users aside from themselves are able to access. Owners are also able use the device as a remote control through the QuickRemote feature.
The new LG G2 will be released through more than 130 carries throughout the world in the next eight weeks but as for now, the company has yet to reveal the device’s actual availability and pricing for Malaysia. To learn more, head on to g2.lgmobile.com.
