LG Gx officially announced in Korea
The recently rumored LG Gx has been officially announced in Korea on Monday morning in the country. The device will feature a 5.5 inch IPS screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. The LG Gx will have a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood. 2GB of RAM is on board with 32GB of native storage and the back and front cameras weigh in at 13MP and 2.1MP respectively. The 3140mAh removable battery keeps the lights on, and the unit comes out of the box with an undisclosed build of Android Jelly Bean. The LG Gx does support 2.6GHz broadband 4G LTE service. The dimensions are 150.6 x 76.1 x 9.2 mm and the phone weighs 167 grams.

Some of the features on the model include Smart Day which provides the user with information on the lock screen such as time, weather and any scheduled appointments. QRemote allows you to use your phone as a remote for many different devices. You can also awaken the phone by tapping on the screen twice, a feature known as KnockOn. The device will be offered in black and white.

LG is pricing the phone at 850,000 to 890,000 Korean Won ($808.35 USD to $846.39 USD). If our Korean translation is right, it looks like the phone will launch in early January and will be an exclusive for LG U+ customers. And yes, the specs nearly match those of the LG Optimus G Pro. The difference is some of the new features added to the device, some of which are coming from the current flagship LG G2. For example, the "knock on" feature on the Gx is taken directly from the LG G2.
