A new large-screened Android smartphone is coming to the market, and LG didn’t delay in revealing it. Earlier this year, LG had launched Optimus G Pro in India, and at the launch, the company promised a cheaper variant.
Today, LG unveiled its new smartphone, GX that belongs to the G Pro series and is more or less a refreshed version of the original Optimus G Pro. With a 5.5-inch full HD screen display LG GX is powered by quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, clocked at 1.7GHz. The smartphone is packed with a 2 GB of RAM.
A rear camera of incredible 13-megapixel is available to enhance the picture quality, in addition to 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. The device comes with a built-in 32 GB storage and 3,140 mAh battery.
The connectivity options in the new smartphone include, 3G, LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and NFC. While G Pro was already a slim phone, the company had taken steps to cut down some excess fat for its recent launch. LG GX weighs about 167 grams and measures 150.6 x 76.1 x 9.2 mm and will be available in two colors, namely black and white.
Besides being capriciously similar to Optimus G Pro, in terms of display and processor, GX borrows a lot of features from the company’s 4 months old smartphone G2. Some of the features, that the two phones share include everybody’s favorite Guest Mode privacy, KnockOn locking and unlocking. The smartphone also features G2’s QRemote, which lets you stream the content to Television or the set top box. LG GX has also borrowed features like Quick Memo, QSlide and QTranslator.
Other slew of features that come along with GX include, Smart Day, which is meant to display the actual time, weather, schedules for the day and calendar on the lock screen. Another feature available is Telephone reminder, which notifies the user of the message and missed call on the television screen once it had been paired with a Smart TV. QRemote is another television based feature which lets the user control the television set.
Rightly quoted, the smartphone which made its debut in South Korea today is certainly an amalgamation of Optimus G Pro and G2. Borrowing a few features from the two already released phones, the GX is a combination yet a better one. Taking the whole smartphone experience to a new level with its impeccable features, LG GX is certainly a smartphone one can’t afford to miss.
The phone will be priced about $800 in the South Korean market, however, no official announcements have been made regarding the prices and launch of LG GX in the international market so far.
