LG’s G3 is currently one of the best smartphones available worldwide and LG has recently introduced several spinoff devices, including the G3 Stylus, the L Bello, and L Fino. On Wednesday, LG introduced yet another device called the GX2.
The GX2 looks like the G3 and it even has the same laser focus as the company’s flagship device, though the camera has an 8-megapixel resolution instead of 13 megapixels. However, its mid-range specs have much more in common with last year’s LG GX. Like the GX, the GX2 borrows the look of the current G flagship, but none of the guts are the same. It’s also slightly larger than the G3.

The GX2 features a 5.7-inch screen with a 720p HD display, instead of the 2K screen of the G3. It’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor alongside 1.5GB RAM. The phone comes with a measly 8GB of storage, but it should be expandable via MicroSD card. The front-facing camera is just 1.3 megapixels, rather than 2.1 megapixels like the G3’s front shooter. LG popped a 3,200mAh battery under the GX2’s cover, so at least you won’t have to worry about the massive screen draining your battery.
LG is marketing the GX2 as the ultimate multi-media smartphone for viewing movies, TV shows, and other content that looks best on a bigger screen. Luckily streaming videos shouldn’t be a problem with that giant battery inside.
The LG GX2 should arrive in stores on September 18, but it will only be available in South Korea, for now and maybe forever.
