LG unveils Gx phablet, new Galaxy Note 3 competitor

LG logoSouth Korean maker LG has announced a new Android phablet, called Gx, which is part of the company's G premium lineup. The device will go toe to toe against the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, sporting similar hardware specifications and dimensions.

The Gx comes with a 5.5-inch IPS display, with a now flagship-standard resolution of 1080 by 1920. LG has opted for a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, instead of the more powerful Snapdragon 800 which is found in devices like the G2 and Galaxy Note 3, with 2 GB of RAM. The handset is powered by a 3,140 mAh battery.

On the back, the Gx ships with a 13 MP camera with autofocus, while on the front the device offers a 2.1 MP shooter. To make room for the sizeable photos and videos, LG equipped it with 32 GB of internal storage, but no microSD card slot.

As far as connectivity options go, the Gx offers support for 4G LTE (including the 2.6 GHz band), HSPA+, EV-DO and VoLTE (Voice over LTE). The list also includes Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Low Energy), USB 2.0 and NFC (Near Field Communication).

The Gx ships with a Jelly Bean variation of Android -- LG does not mention if it is 4.1, 4.2 or 4.3 -- alongside LG's own software enhancements, which include Q Remote (allows the device to act as a physical remote for household appliances), LTE U + Navi, Smart Memo, Media Time, KnockOn (allows to double tap on the display to lock and unlock the device) and others.

The Gx comes in at 150.6 x 76.1 x 9.2 mm and 167 grams. The device will be available, in black and white, in South Korea, with no word yet concerning international availability.
