The Engadget Interview: LG Mobile's Dr. Ram-chan Woo on the G2 design and features

Today at LG's G2 launch event in New York City, we had the chance to speak with Dr. Ram-chan Woo -- LG Mobile's head of LTE product planning -- about the company's new flagship. He walked us through the handset's design with its signature back-mounted volume rocker and power button. We discussed the ultra-thin bezel surrounding the 5.2-inch 1080p GRAM-equipped IPS panel and how the combination of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC and a pyramid-shaped 3,000mAh Li-poly cell helps balance performance and battery life. Next we talked about the 13MP camera which packs OIS, 9-point AF and software-enhanced digital zoom. Finally, Dr. Woo shared his excitement about Hi-fi audio and the phone's ability to playback 24bit / 192KHz FLAC and WAV files right out of the box -- a feature we're rather fond of ourselves. Hit the break for our video interview and be sure to read our hands-on.
