LG announces Gx, a 5.5-inch smartphone with Snapdragon 600
LG has started the new week with the announcement of a new Android smartphone in the Korean market. Dubbed as LG Gx, the smartphone features a 5.5-inch full HD IPS display and is powered by quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor.
The phone will be initially released on telecom operator LG U+, which says LG Gx supports the company’s new Broadband LTE network, which offer faster data download and upload speeds than LTE-A. LG U+’ Broadband LTE network is going live in Seoul and surrounding areas this year, followed by other parts of the country next year.
LG has included various software tweaks on the phone including something called Smart Day, which gives you an overview of the your schedule, weather, and other key information right on the lock-screen. Apart from Smart Day, there are other features like Media Time, Smart Memo, U+ Navi, QRemote and Knock On.
On the specifications front, LG GX comes with 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera, 3140 mAh battery and 2GB of RAM. The exact Android version present on the phone is unclear.
There is no word on whether the phone will be launched outside South Korea but if not Gx, we could see a variant of Gx coming to other regions.
