LG G2 Sent to Space to Show Off its 13MP Camera

Say what you will about the LG G2’s bizarre button placement, you can’t deny that the new handset boasts some pretty impressive specs. In a new video, the South Korean company focuses on the G2’s 13-megapixel rear camera, sending the device into the stratosphere and taking pictures all the way up. The team spent 45 days preparing to launch the smartphone, and it takes some amazing images along the way.

The video not only highlights the G2’s powerful camera with optical image stabilization (IOS), which allows it to take clear photos even when the phone is being moved around, it also demonstrates the phones durability. The video was apparently shot on a rainy day, which makes the handset’s successful ascent all the more impressive.

Besides its 13-megapixel camera, the G2 also comes equipped with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and a 3,000mAh battery. The handset’s design includes ultra-thin 0.1-inch bezels, thanks in part to the placement of the power and volume buttons on the back of the device. LG’s new handset will hit stores next month.
