Nairobi - LG Electronics has pushed the battle for Android gadget a notch higher by introducing yet another smartphone in the East African market.

The new LG G2 Smartphone was unveiled in Nairobi on Wednesday and will be available in Kenyan shops by next month. It will be running on Android operating system and will be retailing at KES 60 000.

The company’s head of East and Central Africa, Joseph Kim, said that the gadget is notable for its 5.2 inch full HD display, wider screen and has one unique feature - absence of side buttons - adding that users were unable to access the side keys as smartphones continued to get larger in size.

The G2 is equipped with powerful specs - 13 megapixel camera and is operating on Android 4.2.2 just like the Samsung Galaxy and has a vivid 1080p HD display.

“The G2 is unique in that it offers 13MP and OIS technology in a slim design without a protruding lens and the gadget was named the most popular Android Smartphone edging ahead of Samsung Electronics Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 3,” Said Kim.

According to Kim, its Apps and home screens open with the blink of an eye and have a 2GB Ram and an internal memory of up to 32 GB.

Analysts have in the past said it would take a hit Smartphone device to boost the company’s profit and the G2 device might just be it.
