The LG G2 features an “edge-to-edge” 5.2-inch Full HD 1080p IPS display, runs Android 4.2.2 and boasts a 2.26GHz quad-core Krait CPU on a Snapdragon 800 SoC. On the specs side, the LG G2 also features 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 3,000mAh battery. As for wireless service, the LG G2 will run on 4G LTE.
While LG unveiled the specs and features of the G2, the company was more tight-lipped about the LG G2’s price and any possible release date for the phone.
The LG G2 comes with a number of compelling user experience (UX) features that provide the most practical value by focusing on a smartphone’s most popular tasks:
– 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.
– Text Link –Allows information embedded in text messages to be selected and easily saved in a memo or calendar and searched on a map or the internet.
– Quick Remote – Not only can LG G2 be used to remotely control popular home entertainment devices, it can also learn from conventional remotes and be customized to operate multiple devices with flexible layouts and keys.
– Slide Aside –Enables easier multitasking by simply “sliding” open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe.
– Guest Mode –Protects owner’s privacy by displaying only pre-selected apps when guests access the phone with a secondary unlock pattern.
New Perspective in Smartphone Design
The LG G2 brings everything together in a device with comfortable, functional, convenient and beautiful design. The LG G2 shifts the paradigm in smartphone design by placing all the buttons on the rear of the device, making this the first smartphone to be completely devoid of side buttons.
Moving the main buttons to the back of the phone gave users more control since this place was where individuals’ index fingers are naturally located. Researchers found that moving the buttons also resulted in fewer dropped phones when adjusting the volume while talking.
Long-pressing on the rear-mounted volume keys allows users to launch Quick Memo TM and the camera, making note taking and photo capturing even easier than before. And if the LG G2 is lying on a surface face up, there’s no need to lift the phone to access the power button on the back. With Knock ON, the LG G2 can be powered on simply by tapping twice on the display.
OIS and High Resolution for Great Pictures
The LG G2’s high-resolution camera comes equipped with Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) technology to prevent blurring, allowing for clearer, brighter and sharper images even when in motion or shooting in dim environments. Most current smartphone cameras with OIS tend to offer resolution in the 4MP to 8MP range. The G2 is unique in that it offers 13MP and OIS technology in a slim design without a protruding lens. And features such as Super Resolution and Multi-point AF help keep everything in focus, just like a standalone point-and-shoot digital camera.
Studio Quality Hi-Fi Sound
In recent years, there has been an increase in consumer demand for superior sound in smartphones as high-quality multimedia content becomes more ubiquitous. Smartphones have become hubs for entertainment of all kind – TV shows, movies, games – and consumers expect the sound to be just as good as the image. The LG G2 is the first smartphone on the market today to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like quality sound, far superior to a CD.
