LG G2 Rear Key  New Perspective in Smartphone Design

The LG G2 brings everything together in a device with comfortable, functional, convenient and stylish design. The LG G2 revolutionizes the trend in Smartphone design by placing all the buttons on the rear of the device, making this the first Smartphone without buttons on the sides of the device. The Rear Key concept is inspired by the fact that when users are talking on the phone, they often have difficulties accessing the side buttons. Moving the main buttons to the back of the phone makes it more convenient and comfortable for users since their index fingers can easily reach adjustment buttons. It also gives users are better grip when they adjust the volume while talking.

 

With various features, pressing down on the rear-mounted volume keys allows users to launch QuickMemoTM and the camera easily, making note taking and photo capturing more convenient than before. Using the KnockON function, users can easily activate the phone with two light taps, saving the hassle to pick up the phone or press the back button.

 

 

 

Edge-to-Edge Display and Best-In-Class Power Capacity

LG upped the ante by incorporating a 5.2-inch Full HD display in the LG G2, the largest display designed for one-handed operation in today’s popular 2.7-inch width Smartphone category. In addition to the expansive viewing experience, LG’s innovative Dual Routing technology reduced the phone’s bezel to a mere 2.65mm on the side edge. And with proven IPS technology, the LG G2 offers superior graphics, accurate colors and clear images without any distortion.  

 

Moreover, the LG G2 employs Graphic RAM (GRAM) for more efficient energy usage. GRAM reduces the display’s energy use by up to 26 percent on a still frame and increases overall usage time on the device by approximately 10 percent. With a generous 3,000mAh battery that is thoughtfully designed to take maximum advantage of the interior space and SiO+ technology for enhancing battery volume and durability, the LG G2 is more than ready for a full day’s work.

 

Studio Quality Hi-Fi Sound

In recent years, there has been an increase in consumer demand for superior sound in smartphones as high quality multimedia content becomes more ubiquitous. Smartphones have become hubs for entertainment of all kind — TV shows, movies, games — and consumers expect the sound to be just as good as the image. The LG G2 is the first smartphone on the market today to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like quality sound, far superior to a CD. Now consumers can hear a level of realism in sounds that haven’t been possible before in a smartphone.

 

OIS and High Resolution for Great Pictures

The LG G2 comes equipped with Optical Image Stabilizer (OIS) technology to prevent blurring, allowing for clearer, brighter and sharper images even when in motion or shooting in dim environments. Most current smartphone cameras with OIS tend to offer resolution in the 4MP to 8MP range. The G2 is unique in that it offers 13MP and OIS technology in a slim design without a protruding lens. And features such as Multi-point AF helps keep everything in focus, just like a standalone point-and-shoot digital camera.

 

Practical UX Connected to Everyday Life

Research shows that the most frequently used smartphone features are the most basic ones which users often take for granted such as SMS, social networking, directions and making phone calls. The LG G2 comes with a number of user experience (UX) features that provide the most practical value by focusing on a smartphone’s most popular tasks:

 

l  Answer Me — Automatically answers the call after lowering the ringtone when the phone is raised to one’s ear

l  Plug & Pop — Recommends options or related features to choose from when the earphone or USB cable is detected

l  QuickRemote — Not only can LG G2 be used to remotely control popular home entertainment devices, operating different kinds of household appliance, it can also learn from conventional remote controls and be customized to operate multiple devices with flexible layouts and keys

Besides, LG G2 comes with the Learning Mode function that can easily synchronize the phone with other remote controls, reducing the hassle of keeping multiple remotes for different devices.

l  Slide Aside — Enables easier multitasking by simply “sliding” open apps off to the side using a three-finger swipe

l  Guest Mode — Protects owner’s privacy by displaying only pre-selected apps when guests access the phone with a secondary unlock pattern

 

Unmatched Performance with Next Generation LTE

The LG G2 runs on the industry’s most advanced mobile chipset, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 Processor and redefines the smartphone experience through stunning performance, rich graphics and outstanding battery efficiency. Through a long-term partnership with Qualcomm, LG was able to deploy the chipset integrated perfectly with the hardware to offer powerful and yet stable performance.

Suggested Retail Price

The LG G2 is available now in black and white and offer 16GB and 32GB. The suggested retail price is to be confirmed.
