A new report has surfaced stating that LG plans to launch the recently unveiled Gx smartphone in the UK as soon as next month. The latest device from the South Korean conglomerate appears to be the successor to the Optimus G Pro which was announced earlier this year. And as most are aware, the latter smartphone didn’t make its debut in the UK, at least officially.
The LG Gx will be the company’s flagship phablet. Not only does it share a lot of design similarities with the Optimus G Pro, but has almost identical specifications. By the looks of things, the new handset isn’t what we’d expect as a successor to the G Pro, mostly since the company hasn’t done much internally and externally.
Compared to the G Pro, the Gx is slightly thinner and it weighs lesser, but only by a little. The device will arrive with Android Jelly Bean, albeit no specific version number has been provided. LG will include its own UX which will tag along apps like Smart Day, Smart Memo, IR blaster and a lot more. The battery fitted within the phablet will have a 3140mAh capacity.
Below are the specifications at a glance:
– Platform: Android Jelly Bean
– Processor: quad core Snapdragon 600
– Display: 5.5-inch FHD IPS panel
– RAM: 2GB
– Storage: 32GB in-built
– Dimensions: 150.6mm x 76.1mm x 9.2mm
– Weight: 167 grams
There’s no precise release date or a price for the Optimus Gx, but Recombu notes that it’s headed to the UK soon. Based on this information, it’s safe to say that other parts of Europe will also receive the phablet.
