LG launches GX smartphone in Korea with 5.5-inch display, Snapdragon 600

Expecting a lazy Sunday night? You aren't thinking globally: it's midday in Korea, and LG's announcing a new large-screened smartphone. The LG GX features a wide 5.5-inch full HD IPS display, a quad-core Snapdragon 600 CPU, a 13 megapixel camera, 32GB of onboard storage and a 3,140 mAh battery. Don't be too surprised if that sounds familiar -- it matches the LG Optimus G Pro blow for blow, distinguishing itself primarily by design, locality and few updated user interface features. Namely, the GX has adopted the G2's "knock on" feature, which allows users to double tap phone's screen to rouse it from sleep, and it can also integrate with LG smart TVs to display call and text information while you're watching the game. Naturally, the LTE-toting slab is only available in Korea for now, but if you're looking for an eyeful, check out LG's Flickr gallery at the source link below.
