LG_GxLG announces the GX in Korea. Remember that saying, ‘If it aint broke, don’t fix it”? The saying in some sections of the smart phone world means a lot. If you look at the countless variations of flagships smart phones you’ll begin to notice a trend. Samsung’s Galaxy S devices have continued success, while Apple continued to improve upon their stand alone design for some time now. LG has been playing the same game as well and yesterday the company unveiled the GX which for all intensive purposes is the next generation Optimus G Pro. So what does the GX have to offer this brave new world? Lets find out.

LG has taken the wraps off of their latest flagship smart phone and announced the GX in its home court, South Korea. The device will be known as the GX and drops the Optimus name in order to stand on its own, similarly to the Optimus G Pro variant, better known as the G2. The GX starts with a 5.5 inch full 1080p HD touch screen that gives access to Android Jelly Bean although a specific version has not yet been specified. Internally the device sports a highly capable Snapdragon 600 processor alongside 32 GB of storage and 2 GB of RAM. The GX measures in at a super thin 9.2 mm and weighs only 167 grams and packs in a 13 mega pixel rear facing camera while a 2.1 mega pixel shooter is housed up front. Add in connectivity such as Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, micro USB 2.0 and a super large 3140 mAh battery and you have all you need! The GX also sports updated data support as it can handle LTE-A networks. While there is no word on if the GX will make it outside of South Korea it is currently available in the country for approximately 800,000 won, which is about $760 currently.
