LG G2 Boasts 5.2-Inch Screen, Snapdragon 800 Processor
Updated: rewrote much of the article to add items
LG today announced the G2, the successor to last year's flagship smartphone and the first to use the company's new "G" branding for its premium devices. The G2's stand-out feature is a 5.2-inch in-plane switching 1080p HD display. The phone is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. The G2's main camera rates 13 megapixels with optical image stabilization and the user-facing camera rates 2 megapixels. Both can capture full HD video. Connectivity options include HSPA+ and LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 Low Energy, HDMI and NFC, and GPS/GLONASS. Storage is set at 32GB. The G2 is packed with software, much of which was created just for the G2. For example, Answer Me will automatically answer calls when the phone is picked up and placed next to your year. Two knocks on the screen will wake it from sleep. It uses a new multitasking feature called Slide Aside, which can be used to page through multiple apps. Text Link scans items such as your text messages and will automatically pull up associated apps like the calendar when the software reads that there's an event invite in the message. Last, it features Guest Mode, which can be used to put the device into a safer setting when the device is handed to friends or children. The G2 is powered by a 3,000mAh battery. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The LG G2 goes on sale later this year at all four major U.S. carriers and will be available in black or white. Pricing was not disclosed.
