LG was out of the limelight after the company announced the LG G Flex with a 6 inch curved OLED display back in October but now the Korean giant has announced the launch of a new smartphone which has specifications, very similar to that of the LG G Pro and is called the LG Gx for the Korean buyers. The LG Gx carries a 5.5 inch full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) IPS curved glass display. The LG Gx is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with Adreno 320 GPU with 2 GB LPDDR2 RAM. 


The internal memory is pegged at 32 GB which is not expandable. The smartphone weighs about 167 grams while it measures just 9.2mm thick with minimal bezel around the display. The LG Gx carries a 13 megapixel camera on the back with LED Flash with capability of capturing videos at 1080p. On the front, there is a 2.1 megapixel camera for users to make video calls and chat with their loved ones.

The LG Gx runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS with loads of software features which go on to include Smart Day which gives weather update, daily schedules and more on the lockscreen at a glance, Media Time to control music and videos easily, Smart Memo, Q Voice, QRemote, LTE U + Navi with real-time traffic information and route guidance in Korea and KnockOn. Connectivity options include LTE, 3G, 2G, EV-DO, VoLTE (LG U +), WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, 2.6GHz LTE support, GPS, NFC and 3.5mm audio jack.

The LG Gx packs in a powerful 3140 mAh battery which is non-removable and will be available in White and Black colour options. Buyers in Korea will have to shell out 8,00,000 South Korean Won which is about Rs.47,000 with no details available on the global availability of the smartphone shared by LG yet but we will share more details once we have them.
