The new handset features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 quad-core processor, 2 GB of memory and, unlike the LG G2, it has the power and volume buttons on the sides.

The LG G2 flagship handset is a very attractive device but the placement of its power and volume buttons on the back is not something to get acquainted to for a lot of customers - one must love this design approach or hate it from the first minutes, there is no middle ground. Now, the South Korean company decided to release another phablet inspired by the LG G2, namely the LG Gx.

Compared to the G2, the LG Gx features a larger display, its power and volume buttons are on the sides and the processor is slightly slower. These are its main specs:

  • Processor: quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB eMMC internal storage, but no microSD support
  • Display: 5.5-inch IPS touchscreen with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Cameras: 13 MP with autofocus on the back, 1.3 MP front
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, HSPA and LTE, micro USB 2.0
  • Operating system: Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
  • Battery: 3,140 mAh (removable)
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.37 pounds; 5.9X3X0.36 inches
  • Colors available: black, white

The handset comes with many features also offered by the LG G2 and the LG G Pro, including KnockON, Smart Day, QRemote or Media Time. For now, the pricing and availability of the phablet on the Korean market are still unknown and LG did not mention anything about global availability yet.
