Simply known as the LG G2, the first Snapdragon 800-powered Android smartphone is here. LG's new flagship handset has been unveiled today at the Lincoln Center in New York City, confirming a previous leak we mentioned two days ago.

As mentioned above, the LG G2 is the first smartphone to be powered by the Snapdragon 800 processor, a quad-core clocked at 2.26GHz which also features Adreno 330 graphics. It comes with 2 GB of RAM and ships with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.  The LG G2 measures 5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35 inches and weighs 5 ounces (142 g).

The full HD 5.2-inch IPS display has a resolution of 1920X1080 pixels, while the 13 MP rear camera is just as impressive. 13 MP is not unique on the smartphone market, but optical image stabilization is, LG G2's camera also featuring OIS.

To make the G2 the ultimate multimedia smartphone, LG promises 24-bit/192kHz sound, including ringtones optimized for this audiophile level quality. Also featured are a 2.1 MP front camera, a 3,000 mAh battery and 16 or 32 GB of built-in storage.

The pricing/subscription plans available and the release date are still unknown, but T-Mobile already confirmed they are carrying the device.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
