LG Electronics on Wednesday unveiled a new device to challenge Apple, Samsung and other rivals in the booming smartphone market.

The G2 was introduced as the first in a new LG premium smartphone line and boasts features that include control  buttons moved from the edges to theback, and a 5.2-inch high-definition screen spanning the front.

 

“Our definition of innovation today is technology that truly resonates with consumers,” said LG mobile communications chief Jong-seok Park.

He referred to the G2 as the most ambitious mobile phone ever produced by the South Korean company.

LG said the smartphone’s design incorporated lifestyle research showing that people want ergonomic designs, practical functions and intuitive interaction.
