Introducing the first smartphone under its `G' premium series, LG unveiled its latest flagship handset - the LG G2 - at a Wednesday launch event held in New York. The new LG G2 handset will be rolled out in more than 130 countries over the next two months.
The roll out of the LG G2 handset will commence with South Korea; after which the device will hit the North America and Europe markets. However, there has been no official disclosure from LG about either the handset's specific availability dates or pricing, which LG said would differ for different regions and carriers.
According to LG, the G2 "shifts the paradigm in smartphone design" - as was being widely rumored - with all the buttons placed on the rear side of the device; thereby making it the first handset which does not have side buttons.
Some of the most notable features of the LG G2 handset include a big 5.2-inch Full HD screen with 1080-by-1920 pixel resolution; a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor; a 13-megapixel rear camera; a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera; 3,000mAh battery; and onboard storage options of 16GB or 32GB; and Android OS version 4.2.2 `Jelly Bean.'
About the new G2 handset, Jong-seok Park - president and CEO of LG Electronics - said at the launch event that G2 is "the most exciting and ambitious mobile phone in our company's history."
