Are you feeling so fly, like a G2? After seeing this new smartphone, we sure are.
Unlike most new smartphones, which are just faster this, bigger that, blah blah blah, this one has actually made a few ergonomic changes that just make sense. Buttons are now on the back of the device, where your fingers normally are when you hold it. The screen is now the largest of any smartphone in it’s class – a bright and massive 5.2-inch full HD. The 13 megapixel rear-facing camera has a slick sliding button to protect it as well as activate the camera with one flip.
Power comes from a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of DDR3 memory, meaning this is more powerful than the laptop you got 3 years ago. The software features are pretty slick too, with a pared-down guest mode, a programmable remote that can operate devices in your house, and a phone that automatically answers when you put it up to your ear.
Price and release date are TBD, but this is definitely a shot across the bow of other manufacturers.
