LG Gx2 with 5.5 inch HD display, laser focus and 4G LTE goes live

By | August 28, 2014


LG has launched the G Vista Android running smartphone for US operator with Verizon a month back. And now the company has launched the same handset as Gx2 for Korean operator LG U+ as the Gx series that was launched back in Dec. 2013. It has almost similar specifications and hardware included as the G Vista, including a 5.7-inch HD display, Android 4.4 (KitKat), 8-megapixel rear camera with single LED flash, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, laser auto focus and a 1.3-MP front-facing shooter.

The LG Gx2 is a inexpensive, big-screened Android smartphone that scores well on most features. Only a couple things hold it back, but they aren’t vital. This has 4G LTE-A support for the Korean market and has modified UI for LG U+ users. It has power button and volume rocker key at the back side below the camera lens and has G3 like UI.

The G Vista is a decent piece of hardware for its price point, but it is clearly several notches below the G3 in terms of design and quality.

LG Gx2 key specifications:

  • Display: 5.7-inch (1280 × 720 pixels) HD IPS display
  • Processor: 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • Memory: 1.5GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, expandable memory with microSD
  • Operating System: Android 4.4.2 (KitKat)
  • Dimensions: 9.1mm thick, Weight: 165 grams
  • Main Camera: 8MP rear camera with Laser AF, LED Flash
  • Front Camera: 1.3MP front-facing camera
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE-A/ 3G HSPA+, WiFi , Bluetooth, GPS
  • Battery: 3200mAh battery

The LG Gx2 comes in Titanium White and Black colors and will be available from Korean operator LG U+ starting August 28th. It also offers a free Quick Circle Case for customers who will grab the smartphone before September 18th.
