LG is about to launch its new flagship device, the G2, and LG Electronics’ vice chairman Koo Boon-joon who is a man of few words, apparently praised the noteworthy features of the company’s upcoming flagship device.
Hundreds of reporters and guests witnessed the unveiling of the LG G2 in New York City’s Lincoln Centre. Consumers are expecting very highly of this upcoming device which can be seen from the hype the phone has created in the market.
The phone will be based on the theme of technology learning from humans and would be the most user-friendly smartphone ever made.
LG has reduced the thickness of the phone notably as compared to its predecessors and most rivals. Another notable feature is the strategic placement of the volume control and the power buttons at the back where the index finger is most comfortable. This according to LG will reduce the chances of the phone falling while using it single handed.
The volume down button at the back launches the camera and holding the volume-up key opens the application QuickMemo which as the name suggests helps you to make quick notes.
Another prominent feature of the phone is the way the screen powers on. Instead of pressing the home button you just need to tap twice on the display and it will power on.
LG G2 would be the first smartphone to feature the 24 bit/192 KHz Hi-Fi playback that LG claims produces studio quality sound.
The G2 is powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and runs the Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS.
The phone has a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS display and a 13 megapixel primary camera with optical image stabilization. The front camera is 2.1 megapixel and the phone has a 3,000 mAh battery.
The G2 is priced at $856 and will hit the shelves on Thursday all across the globe.
