At a New York press conference on Wednesday, LG took the wraps off the LG G2, its newest flagship handset. Equipped with powerful specs, this G2 knocks the Korean mobile company's previous flagship, the Optimus G Pro for AT&T, right out of the water.
Not only does the new G2 sport a 13-megapixel camera like its main rival, the Samsung Galaxy S4, it also runs Android 4.2.2 and has a vivid 1080p HD display. Uncommonly, and not completely comfortably, its volume rocker and power buttons are located on the phone's back.
Furthermore, the G2 is the first globally available handset to boast Qualcomm's lightning-quick Snapdragon 800 processor for all models and providers, not just a select few. Along with an international launch, you'll also be able to pick up a G2 from four U.S. carriers: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
The G2 is without a doubt LG's most ambitious smartphone yet. And while it has what it takes to challenge its Android rivals, it isn't yet crystal-clear if the G2 can topple them, especially if individuals find it hard to get used to the phone's unusual back-panel controls.
