LG recently announced the launch of its new model G2 smartphone to compete with Samsung and Apple. Strangely, LG is the second biggest vendor of Android OS followed by Samsung. However, the share of LG stands at mere 6% compared to whopping 38% of Samsung. With the launch of G2, LG expects to increase their market share.
Buyers will get to see some of the new features in LG G2. The phone will have a 5.2 inch full HD display with a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. It is loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The device will also have a powerful 13 MP camera with eight times zoom facility. It certainly brings some good news for all the crazy gamers. G2 will have a dedicated RAM meant only for graphics, GRAM. GRAM helps in increasing the battery efficiency by upto 26 percent on a still frame. The 3,000 mAh LG battery allows the phone to last for 1.2 days in a single charge.
However, the most noticeable difference of LG G2 is the difference in the location of power and volume buttons. Instead of placing these buttons at the side of the phone, they are placed at the rear. LG claims that the design was done mainly after studies revealed that most of the users find it difficult to control the side buttons when the screen size is big. Placing these buttons at the rear is certainly the most innovative design by LG. Holding down the volume button switches on the camera while the volume up button opens QuickMemo note taking program. Also, to activate the screen display, the user has to double tap on the screen.
LG G2 is set to hit the market globally in the next eight weeks. It will be available with more than 130 carriers globally.
