Now that LG's flagship G3 is a big success, it's pulling a Samsung by throwing esoteric spin-offs like the G3 Stylus against a wall to see if they stick. The latest is the not-so-brilliantly named Gx2 (the company already has a G2x) that packs a huge, 5.7-inch screen and laser camera focus borrowed from the G3. Other specs are run-of-the-mill: a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, 1.3-megapixel front camera, 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB memory, 720p screen resolution and a 3,200mAh battery that should run forever. Oddly the meek 8-megapixel camera doesn't seem to deserve the laser system, but maybe there's a "focus buff" market we're unaware of. Pricing and availability have yet to be revealed, but it's likely to stay in Asia.
