LG G2 announced
There are plenty of names in the smartphone world to choose from when you are in the market looking for a new handset that is said to make your life a whole lot easier and more convenient. Of course, if you were to go through the likes of iOS, then there really isn’t much choice for you in the first place, with the current generation iPhone serving its purpose. On the Android front, however, things are rather different, with many different companies rolling out their respective flagship models over the years, and right now, LG’s most recent candidate to fly their flag high would be the LG G2.
The LG G2 happens to be the first smartphone that will be under LG’s new “G” Series for premium devices, and it has certainly taken its design in a new direction where Android-powered smartphones are concerned, having introduced a paradigm shift as all of its buttons are located on the rear of the handset itself. This would mean it is the first smartphone that has no side buttons whatsoever, and coming up with the unique Rear Key concept was an interesting journey which involved studies that pointed this out – the larger the phone became, the more difficult it was to properly access the side keys. Simply shifting the main buttons to the back of the handset offered additional control, as the back of a smartphone is where one’s index fingers are naturally located.
Features of the LG G2 include a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor that will be accompanied by a quad Krait CPU, a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display at 1080 x 1920 resolution and a whopping 423 ppi pixel density, a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory, depending on your budget, 2GB RAM, two cameras – one 13-megapixel shooter with optical image stabilization at the back, and a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera, a 3,000mAh capacity battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. Too bad there are only black and white colors to choose from!
