LG has announced a new Android device today, the LG Gx. We heard rumors of the Android smartphone becoming reality just a few days ago, and weren’t exactly thinking it would make an appearance so quickly. Well, the LG Gx is now reality, at least in Korea for now.
From the naming scheme, one would venture to guess that the Gx tout rear volume and power buttons like the LG G2. Wrong! For the LG Gx, LG has taken the device’s design back to the old days of side mounted power and volume buttons. That has to be welcome news for those who despise the LG G2′s button configuration.
So what is the LG Gx touting as far as specs? Let’s just say its very similar to the LG G2, but with a bigger screen and a slower processor. Unlike the G2 which touts a snappy Snapdragon 800 processor, the Gx comes rocking a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. The Gx comes with 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear-facing camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, a 3,140mAh battery and a 5.5 inch Full HD IPS display.
The Gx comes coupled with a ton of software features, such as Q Remote, Smart Memo and Smart Day just to name a few. The Gx also includes the coolest feature of the LG G2, Knock On, which allows users to tap the screen twice to wake the device up. The Gx supports VOLTE, and is optimized for Korea’s LG U+ network.
The device is currently only available in Korea, but we could see the bad boy hitting American shores in the future. No pricing has been detailed.
