LG has finally revealed its new flagship G2 smartphone. The device was launched at a special event in New York, with the Korean giant claiming its latest effort ushers in ‘a new perspective in smartphone design’.
That’s a rather bold statement, but the G2 is certainly a little different from its key Android rivals, including Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and HTC’s One.
For a start, the volume and power controls are on the back of the device, beneath the phone’s camera. By shifting those buttons, LG says the G2 offers a better screen experience than its competitors.
The 5.2-inch Full HD display stretches across the entire device, with the bezel measuring just 0.1mm. As well as that unique design, LG has also managed to cram in Graphic RAM tech, which it says drops the screen’s energy use by 26%, pushing up battery life by around 10%.
The handset is also the first to pack in 24 bit/192Hz Hi-Fi, making it a must for hardcore audiophiles too.
The G2 also includes a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13-megapixel camera, 2GB of RAM and Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2.
Three has confirmed that it will be stocking the LG G2 ‘soon’.
