Does LG have a 5.5 inch LG Gx coming?
Get your container of Morton's ready because here is a story that you should take with a grain of salt. A published report out of Korea says that LG is about to offer its next high end "G" series phone, the LG Gx. This would apparently be the next flagship Android phone coming from the Korean based OEM and would replace the LG G2. Despite lower than expected sales, the latter has won the critics over with its high end specs, paper thin bezel and strong battery life. In fact, we recently listed the LG G2 as one of PhoneArena's Best Smartphones for 2013.

But the LG Gx is supposedly coming to market with a 5.5 inch screen. That tops the 5.2 inches on the LG G2. Here is where this rumor might fall apart. Despite the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor on the LG G2, the LG Gx is expected to carry a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood. In addition, back in June, LG said that all of it's "G" series phones would feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. So far, LG has kept this promise.

Assuming that it will actually be the Snapdragon 800 driving the model, the Gx will purportedly feature 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 13MP rear-facing camera is on board and the 3140mAh battery slightly tops the 3000mAh cell on the current flagship model. The phone will support LTE-A.

There is no word when the LG Gx might see the light of day, if it ever does. Perhaps we will soon see this model getting its Bluetooth or Global Certification,or getting run through a benchmark test. What we're trying to say is that if the LG Gx is for real, we should start to see it pop up in the usual spots, like the FCC or seen in a render tweeted by evleaks.
