LG G2 officially announced, specs confirmed

At the LG event in New York today the South Korean company officially unveiled the LG G2 which is their latest flagship phone and notably, is the first to not carry the Optimus branding. The phone was designed, according to LG with five things in mind: camera, sound, display, design and user experience. So it comes as no surprise that LG have included a 13 megapixel rear camera on the LG G2 and it comes with optical image stabilization. Round the front we’re greeted with a 2.1 megapixel camera. Display wise, the handset features a 5.2 inch 1080p display and powering the handset is a 2.26GHz quadcore Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM and a 3000 mAh battery.

The LG G2 will come with Android 2.2.2 on and LG have added their “Practical UX” interface on top which is said to make the phone easy to use. Features of the Practical UX include:

“Text Link” – information from texts and be easily selected and added to the calendar, pull up a map or saved in a memo.
“Guest Mode” – as the name suggests, you can protect your privacy when someone else is using your phone with guest mode which only allows pre-selected apps to be displayed and accessed by guests. Guest mode is enabled via a secondary unlock pattern.
Another nifty feature is “Answer Me”, the phone will lower the ringtone as you raise it to your ear and then will automatically answer the phone once the handset has been raised to the user’s ear.

Sharing is caring!
