LG Electronics has launched what it has dubbed the most powerful device in its lineup of the G series smartphones in the Gulf.

According to the vendor, the new G2 smartphone exemplifies LG's aim to bring forth more customer-centric innovations based on research of consumer lifestyle and behaviour.

The consumer electronics maker said the smartphone offers users more real-life benefits such as ergonomic design, practical functions and an intuitive user experience.

"Our definition of innovation today is technology that truly resonates with consumers," said D.Y Kim, president of LG Electronics, Gulf FZE. "We have always listened and learned from consumers in pursuit of innovation. We took this research to new heights in developing the LG G2, the most exciting and ambitious phone in our company's history."

The G2 comes with the advanced mobile chipset, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, offering high performance, rich graphics and outstanding battery efficiency. LG claims the G2 is the first smartphone on the market to feature 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like quality sound, far superior to a CD.

According to LG, what makes the G2 to be the most revolutionary smartphone is the innovative features incorporated within the device. The company said the G2 eliminates the need for multiple navigation buttons in front of the handset, the G2 is equipped with single refined rear key that serves as the command centre for power and volume functions. Long-pressing on the rear-mounted volume keys allows users to launch QuickMemoTM, and the camera, making note taking and photo capturing even easier than before. The device is also equipped with a 13MP optical image stabiliser (OIS).

"The new LG G2 represents the level of innovation that we constantly strive to deliver to our customers, hand in hand with the very best value," said Fahad Al Hassawi, chief commercial officer, du. "Customers can enjoy the latest LG smartphone to its full capacity with our incredible Smartphone offers exclusively for our customers, which include a variety of purchase options and data packages, powered by our award-winning network. We are proud of this partnership with LG, and look forward to further collaborations in the future."

Packed with the "knock on" feature, users can bring the G2 to life or set it to sleep mode by simply tapping the screen with their fingertip.

LG upped the ante by incorporating a 5.2-inch Full HD display in the LG G2, the largest display designed for one-handed operation in today's popular 2.7-inch width smartphone category. The G2 bezel has been reduced to a mere 2.65mm on the side edge and with proven IPS technology, the LG G2 offers superior graphics, accurate colors and clear images without any distortion.
