LG has gone from strength to strength in the mobile market. The once maligned mobile maker hit a home run with the Google Nexus 4. LG is launching its own top of the line G2 in the third quarter of 2013. Backed by a lot of marketing and internet hype, the LG G2 is one of the most awaited mobile releases of the year.
The LG G2 operates on a now standard 2G and 3G format. It also has the capacity to support 4G LTE networks. The phone uses a 5.2 inch touchscreen while Android 4.2.2 Jellybean is the operating system. All the standard features on a phone in the segment like accelerometer, gyro, proximity sensor, etc., are present of course.
The LG G2 comes with a 5.2 inch 16M-color 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) power efficient capacitive IPS LCD touchscreen with Gorilla Glass 3. It features 424 ppi and 450 nit brightness and extremely narrow bezels (2.65 mm). All of this making for a top of the line display.
It comes running a speedy 2.26GHz quad-core processor alongside 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and an all new design which sees all physical buttons moved to the handset's rear. LG say that moving the buttons to the back of the phone gave users more control since this is where the index fingers are naturally located.
The battery on this phone is a mind-boggling 3000mAh Li-Po unit. This would provide adequate power to even the most extreme user. Although, LG intends to use a 2160mAh battery in some markets, the battery seems adequate enough for heavy use.
The LG G2 features a 13MP optically stabilized autofocus camera with 8X optical zoom, face detection, HDR mode, geo-tagging and panorama. It record Full HD videos (1080p) at 60fps. Another nice feature is that the camera has a sapphire glass cover. The secondary camera is a 2.1 MP front facing camera with Full HD video capture.
The G2 features dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, standard micro USB port with MHL and USB host, GPS receiver with A-GPS, GLONASS, 3.5mm audio jack, NFC and wireless screen sharing.
Packed with top of the line features, it's abundantly clear that LG wants to make a mark with the G2. But LG has carefully waited enough so it can release it as an unmatched contender in regards to its size to power ratio and seems to have put a lot of effort into differentiating it from the aforementioned phones. The LG G2 certainly looks like a promising phone and we can't wait to get out hands on it.
