LG G2 official; 2.3GHz CPU, 5.2-inch fHD & 3,000mAh
Following one of the company’s most successful phones, the Optimus G, LG has finally announced its successor – the LG G2. The brand Optimus has been omitted from the naming this time, and a lot of improvements are promised as the Korean company plays out their card.
On a hardware standpoint, the LG G2 packs a 5.2-inch 1080 x 1920 Tru-HD IPS+ LCD display, larger than the G, but smaller than the G Pro. Also, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU is running the show alongside the Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery.
The glass and crystal-patterned backing is nowhere to be found here anymore, as it is replaced by a texturized one. On top of that will be the 13 megapixel camera w/ LED flash and the uniquely placed volume & power buttons, which aims at making volume adjusting and ergonomics convenient when your fingers are on the back of your phone.
The bezels on the front side of the device are also thinner now, and LG even had the capacitive buttons removed to make way for on-screen ones. All of this is supposed to result in a more manageable form factor.
“Learning from you”
Software consists of highlights as well. From unlocking the phone & guest profiles to app shortcuts & gestures, LG has you covered with the little things as the additions found in the company’s Android UI is just plenty and quite a mouthful.
