Tuesday, September 24, 2013
MANILA – LG Mobile will unveil tonight the LTE-ready LG G2, its newest premium flagship phone.
The LG G2 was dubbed by Stuff.tv as “the best smartphone in the world,” the company said in a press statement.
The device will be launched in the Philippines tonight in Solaire Resort and Casino.
Its worldwide launch was done in New York the previous month. The LG G2 was named “the best smartphone out there now” in a recent PhoneArena.com poll.
“Removing ‘Optimus’ in LG’s high-end mobile handset line, the LG G2 puts forth human-inspired revolutionary features, making it the brand’s most sought-after smartphone to date,” the company said.
LG said the groundbreaking design “stemmed from behavioral studies features the world’s first Rear Key, the only button on the device used for switching on and off, activating the QuickMemo, and launching the 13-megapixel Full HD camera. There are no buttons on the sides of the device for a more sleek and seamless exterior, and its bezel is the narrowest in the market.”
The phone has a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display and “runs on the industry’s most advanced mobile chipset—Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor.” It has a 3,000 mAh siO+ battery and Graphic RAM (GRAM) for maximum battery capacity.
“The camera is equipped with world-class features such as Optical Image Stabilization, sapphire crystal glass lens to avoid scratches and smudges, 8X Digital Zoom, 9 Multi-Point Auto-Focus, and video recording capability up to 60 fps Full HD. It also boasts of the industry’s first 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi sound playback for studio-quality audio,” the company said. (PR)
