LG has officially announced its new flagship smartphone, the G2. The flagship device will run Android 4.2.2 at launch.
The South Korean company’s flagship device will feature a 5.2″ 1080P screen that provides over 400 pixels-per-inch (PPI) and an IPS panel. Hardware powering the device includes Qualcomm’s 2.26GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and internal storage capacities of 16 or 32 gigabytes.
A 13 Megapixel rear-facing camera utilises what LG is calling “breakthrough optical image stabilization” technology that permits for better shots in shaky and low-light environments. A 2.1 MP front-facing camera is also found on the G2. The device is powered by a 3000mAh SiO+ battery.
At just 9.1mm-thick and with an almost-bezel-less design, LG has optimised the G2 for one-handed use. LG moves the handset’s operational keys to the rear side, giving users single-handed control of functions such as volume adjustment and quick access to applications.
