LG recently announced the GX, a new smartphone that is basically a refreshed version of the LG Optimus G Pro that launched earlier this year. As leaks suggested, it’s basically the same device though with a few enhancements.
The phone is equipped with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel camera, a front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera, 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, Android Jelly Bean, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 2.0 and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. It doesn’t support LTE-Advanced, as we suspected it might, though it does offer support for voice-over-LTE (VoLTE). It also has new software features, including Smart Day that provides the weather and other information right on the lock screen, LTE U + Navi for real-time traffic information, and support for viewing who is calling, or a text message, on your connected LG TV.
LG said the phone will launch on U+, a South Korean carrier, on Dec. 17. The company didn’t announce any other availability or a specific price.
