LG Gx announced: 5.5-inch 1080p display, removable 3,140mAh battery

LG Gx announced

LG hit the wire this afternoon announcing the followup to the LG Optimus G Pro you may remember hitting the streets only a few months ago. The LG Gx (short for “great user experience”) is their latest bigphone touting a clean and minimalist design, and packing a respectable amount of specs into a 9.2mm thin package.

Of course, LG’s usual suite of apps come preloaded on the LG Gx, enhancing the user experience with apps like Q Memo, Q Remote universal remote, or their popular LG’s Knock-on feature. With media consumption taking center stage, the LG Gx features cellular radios that takes advantage of Korean U+’s advanced 2.6GHz LTE for worry free video streaming. Additional specs can be found below:

LG Gx specs

  • 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor
  • 13MP rear/2.1MP front facing camera
  • 32GB internal storage/2GB RAM
  • NFC
  • IR blaster
  • 3,140mAh battery (removable)
  • “Android Jelly Bean”

It’s looking like the LG Gx is the Korean manufacturer’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, although it does manage to fall short with the more modest Snapdragon 600. You’ll notice the Gx comes with a removable 3,140mAh battery, making it a solid Android for anyone looking to stay unplugged for days on end.

While it wasn’t specifically mentioned in the press release, we’d imagine — like all of LG’s previous devices — it wont be long before we see this pop up in other markets. We’ll keep you posted.

      What operating system was this running? ICS? Haha

  • Russ

    LG’s software will certainly ensure its not a ‘Gx’

      Too much win in this comment! XD

  • Delmar

    • Herb_Eaversmells

      You make terrible posts imo.

      • Henri Conradie

        Posters gonna post. Also, haters gon’ hate.

    • Ugslick

      LG has the best phone out in the market right now, and a pretty solid tablet too. Anyone who still hates LG is just keeping their eyes closed and hating them because of the past.

    Is there a particular reason as to why battery sizes get so… exact?

    • Alan Shearer

      Each battery is composed of cells, each cell has a certain capacity, so add up the capacities you get the size. Not always a round number, but since when are electronics in round number (ie, 1 MB – 1024 kilobytes, etc. )

      Basically a Richard measuring contest, “mine is bigger than yours!”

  • Garret Broemser

    The only difference between this and my lg optimus g pro 2 is knock on… Is this release suppose to be a non at&t exclusive version?

  • Tbone

    I disagree Delmar. ..my G2 is awesome.

  • Toasted_Cracker

    If it doesn’t have a Wacom screen and a stylus I’m not sure how exactly this is LG’s “answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3″.

    • a) youth.in.asia

      5.5″ screen and removable battery is what I got…

      EDIT: almost forgot, the home button and two capacitive buttons

  • a) youth.in.asia

    Trying to capture some of the Note lines spotlight. The major drawback? No “Q-Pen”

  • Timbo1

    kinda stupid making a follow up device with just about the same exact specs as the device its replacing, could have done better LG, adding an IR blaster does not make it worth an upgrade to the G Pro, nor does a bigger battery, bummer. At least LG’s software is way better than Touchwiz even though it look similar it just functions better.

  • Alex Boro

    This is stupid. Why is there another device that has the same exact specs as the LG Optimus G Pro? Seriously, compare the two and they are pretty much the same exact thing.

  • steveb944

    She looks..er.. I mean that phone looks good

  • socalrailroader

    They have officially abandoned the Optimus G Pro, sad.

  • Big_EZ

    Does it have a microSD slot? If so this could replace my Note 2. I love the size, but hate everything else Samsung has done to these phones. I’d love to go back to Motorola, but I need a decent amount of storage, or (preferably) a microSD slot.
