A day after launching the LG G3 Stylus, the Korean smartphone maker has launched a new smartphone in Korea called LG Gx2. The smartphone's pricing is yet to be disclosed, but it will be made available on September 18.
Running on Android KitKat out-of-the-box, the LG Gx2's specifications mostly match those seen on the G Vista that was launched earlier this year on Verizon and AT&T, and it is the successor to the LG Gx phablet launched in December.
The LG Gx2 features a 5.7-inch HD (720x1280 pixel) resolution IPS-LCD display and is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core (unspecified chipset) processor paired with 1.5GB of RAM. It also features 8GB of inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage. The smartphone also sports LTE-A connectivity, just like the recently unveiled LG G3 Cat.6, LG G3 A, Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A, and Samsung Galaxy S5 4G+.
The Gx2 also borrows the laser autofocus camera technology from the flagship, the LG G3 (Review | Picture) handset. The smartphone sports an 8-megapixel rear camera and also comes with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera. A 3200mAh removable battery backs the LG Gx2.
It measures 152.1x79.2x9.1mm and weighs 165 grams. The Gx2 will be available in White and Titanium Black colour variants.
On Tuesday, the South Korean giant unveiled its LG G3 variant, the G3 Stylus. The South Korean giant also announced that the new LG G3 Stylus will be showcased at the IFA 2014 show in Berlin in early September. Pricing details have not been announced by LG as yet.
Some of the key specifications of the LG G3 Stylus are 5.5-inch qHD (540x960 pixels) display; 1.3GHz quad-core (unspecified chipset) processor; 1GB of RAM; 8GB inbuilt storage and supports expandable storage; 13-megapixel rear camera; 1.3-megapixel font camera; and 3000mAh battery.
The company has confirmed that the LG G3 Stylus will be available in 3G markets starting with Brazil in September that will be followed by countries in Asia, Middle East and Africa and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
