Notably, it has a 13-megapixel camera in the back that comes with optical image stabilization. There is a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera, an IR blaster, and a 3,000mAh battery. It is also one of the first smartphones in the world to relay 24-bit audio.
LG has innovated with the design of the device and placed the power button and the volume keys on the back right beneath the camera module claiming ergonomics. One cannot determine how this might pan out, but international websites claim that this indeed does enhance the usability of the device considering its large footprint. We will reserve our judgement for our review.
It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and comes with LG s Optimus UI and a bunch of customizations.
