LG launched its new flagship device, the LG G2 in August with much fanfare. The handset was rolled out in South Korea initially. Now, the company has announced that its latest flagship is ready for a global roll out and it will be launched in the United States and Germany within this month.
Commenting on the LG G2 roll out Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company said, "The positive market feedback after the initial launch in Korea proved to us that the LG G2's consumer-oriented innovation does resonate with customers. The LG G2 was developed as a global device for a global audience, beyond the scope of any smartphone we've introduced to date. I'm confident consumers will see the difference."
For those unaware, LG G2 comes with a 5.2-inch full-HD (1080x1920) display with a pixel density of 423 pixels-per-inch (PPI). It is powered by Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor capable of speeds up to 2.26GHz. The device comes with 2GB RAM and offers 16GB and 32GB storage options. The LG G2 comes with a 13.0-megapixel rear camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and a 2.1-megapixel front shooter. LG's latest flagship runs Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
There is no word yet on when the LG G2 will head to other markets like India.
LG G2 also comes with software features like Answer Me, Plug & Pop, Text Link, Slide Aside, and a Guest Mode. Answer Me automatically answers the call after lowering the ringtone when the phone is raised to one's ear. Plug & Pop recommends options or related features to choose from when the earphone or USB cable is detected. Slide Aside enables easier multi-tasking by simply "sliding" open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe. Guest Mode is designed to protects owner's privacy by displaying only pre-selected apps when guests access the phone with a secondary unlock pattern. Also included is QuickRemote that can remotely control popular home entertainment devices.
