LG to launch new 5.5-inch flagship called Gx?December 15 | Posted by sarah | Phone News Tags: G2, GX, LG, LG G2, LG Gx
The rumour comes to us courtesy of Korean-speaking site PPOMPPU.kr, which was first spotted and translated by PhoneArena. According to the site, “A published report out of Korea says that LG is about to offer its next high end “G” series phone, the LG Gx. This would apparently be the next flagship Android phone coming from the Korean based OEM and would replace the LG G2.”
It adds, “But the LG Gx is supposedly coming to market with a 5.5 inch screen. That tops the 5.2 inches on the LG G2. Here is where this rumor might fall apart. Despite the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor on the LG G2, the LG Gx is expected to carry a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood. In addition, back in June, LG said that all of it’s “G” series phones would feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. So far, LG has kept this promise.
“Assuming that it will actually be the Snapdragon 800 driving the model, the Gx will purportedly feature 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 13MP rear-facing camera is on board and the 3140mAh battery slightly tops the 3000mAh cell on the current flagship model. The phone will support LTE-A.”
