LG Gx with 5.5-inch display headed to Korea?

Rumoured LG Gx

If the LG G2’s 5.2-inch Full HD (1080×1920) won’t cut it for you, LG may soon have something a bit larger for you. According to a Korean forum post, LG is getting ready to launch the LG Gx in its home country. As the name implies, it will be part of LG’s flagship G line but the LG G2 looks set to remain the top device – at least for now.

A black and white brochure image also gives us a glimpse of what the LG Gx could look like. Not unsurprisingly, it looks much like many other devices out there today.

According to the post, the LG Gx will have the following specifications:

  • Processor: 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600
  • Operating system: Google Android
  • Cellular connectivity: LTE-Advanced
  • Display: 5.5-inch Full HD (1080×1920) IPS
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Internal storage: 32GB
  • Battery: 3,140mAh
  • Dimensions: 9.4 millimeters thick

One thing does not quite add up though. We have yet to see a device combining a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor and LTE-A connectivity. So far, only the Snapdragon 800 has been paired with LTE-A in devices. It may well be that the LG Gx will instead launch with “just” LTE or a Snapdragon 800 instead.

For now, it appears that the LG Gx will only be available in South Korea. But as we saw with the LG G Flex, LG could later expand availability to additional markets.

There is no word on when LG plans on launching the LG Gx. The brochure image shows it decked out for the holiday season so we could still see an announcement before the holidays.

Thanks, tipster!
