LG reveals some details of upcoming flagship smartphone
Recently, LG electronics announced that its upcoming flagship smartphone will feature the latest technology from its other verticals including – LG Chem, LG Display and LG Innotek. Also, LG has confirmed that this upcoming smartphone will be the first one to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 processor. If rumors are to be believed this device from LG will be called the Optimus G.
The company has further mentioned that LG Chem has developed a new technology which will improve the battery’s energy capacity without increasing its size. LG has says that this means the upcoming flagship smartphone will have a lifespan of 800 cycles compared to a typical smartphone battery that lasts for about 500 cycles, claiming it will last 60 percent longer than the latter.
LG Display will bring a 1280 x 768 pixel IPS+ display with a pixel density of 320ppi to this device. LG claims that the display will not only produce sharper and brighter images than AMOLED displays but also consume 70 percent less battery and will not have screen burn-in issues like in AMOLED displays.
Apparently, LG Display has been working in partnership with LG Innotek in the development of this display and this upcoming flagship smartphone will feature a unibody unit. It is called the G2 Touch hybrid display, where there is no gap between the glass and the LCD panel when compared to traditional touchscreen displays.
This smartphone is expected to first hit the Korean market sometime in the month of September, soon followed by a global roll-out. The device hopefully will be unveiled at IFA in Berlin later this week.
