LG debuts 5.5-inch Gx for native Korea

LG debuts 5.5-inch Gx for native Korea

That didn’t take very long! Just a few days after first landing on our rumor radar, the LG Gx has been officially introduced. The Android Jelly Bean-powered smartphone features a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and 32GB internal storage. With a design that calls to mind the Nexus 5 and Optimus G Pro, the Gx boasts 2GB RAM, a 3140mAh battery, and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.

Unlike the LG G2, this one goes for the more traditional approach with home, back, and menu buttons across the front. All in all, this is a sharp looking device which squeezes into a svelte 9.2mm frame.

In terms of software, the Gx includes some of LG’s custom touches; Q Remote, Media Time, and Smart Day, for example.

There’s no indication as to whether the Gx will make its way outside of its native land of Korea but we might not be surprised if it does. We’ve got Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and Mobile World Congress (MWC) coming up in January and February.; both are ideal places to announce U.S. versions.

Rumored LG T-Mobile G-Slate Specs are Touting 3D All Over The Place

There might be more to the LG G-Slate than we thought. GPS&Co is reporting that the upcoming tablet will come with a 8.9 inch 3D display (without glasses) and 3D recording capability. Of course, we must take this rumor with a grain of salt, but we can always hope and dream of these features coming to the G-Slate.

    Strange that ‘native Korea’ is pushing for the reintroduction of an existing model with a few mods.
    Why not wait till the advanced (not yet released) 805 Snapdragon does come on stream in order to take on Samsung’s Note 3, some time in the first half of next year.
    I could not be more satisfied with the Optimus G Pro (LTE, 1080p screen etc) but 4K is really what I want in a TV and a smartphone.
    Who will bring both to the market first? Sony, Samsung or LG and does it matter if all makers are Android based.
