Globe Telecom has announced that it became the first Philippine telco to launch LG Mobile’s newest flagship smartphone, the LG G2, under its suite of fully-customizable postpaid plans.
Dubbed by Stuff Magazine as the “best smartphone in the world” and the “new king of Android”, LG G2 is available for free at Plan 1799 over a 24-month contract period. The postpaid plan bundle already comes with unlimited Long Term Evolution (LTE) surfing which gives subscribers mobile internet speeds of up to 42 mbps, a monthly consumable amount for calls and texts, and one-month free subscription to Globe Gadget Care, the country’s first-ever mobile phone protection program that guarantees a worry-free experience against theft and accidental damage.
“We are honored to be the first Philippine telco to offer LG Mobile’s latest smartphone innovation in the country on the back of our undisputed postpaid leadership and device expertise,” said Raul Macatangay, head of Globe Postpaid. “The LG G2 and its amazing features are best paired with the Best-Ever mySUPERPLAN, the first fully-customizable and most flexible postpaid plan in the country that empowers subscribers to create a plan that fits their needs, budget, and lifestyle.”
“As our best offering yet, we made sure to make LG G2 available with Globe who has already proven its leadership in the postpaid market,” stated Lawrence Kim, vice president of LG Electronics Philippines’ Mobile Communications division. “LG G2’s consumer-based features are complemented by Globe Postpaid’s compelling offers, providing utmost benefit to subscribers.”
Inspired by the tagline “Learning from You,” the LG G2 incorporates human-inspired innovations as exemplified by the world’s first Rear Key, the only physical button on the device. Sporting a 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display and near-zero bezel, the G2 runs on the industry’s most advanced mobile chipset—Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Processor—and contains a 3,000 mAh siO+ battery for maximum battery capacity.
The 13-megapixel Full HD camera is equipped with world-class features such as Optical Image Stabilization, 8X Digital Zoom, 9 Multi-Point Auto-Focus, and video recording capability up to 60 fps Full HD. It also boasts of the industry’s first 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi sound playback for studio-quality audio. The LG G2 also integrates new and practical UX features such as KnockON, which turns the display on or off by tapping twice, and Guest Mode, which protects the owner’s privacy by displaying only pre-selected apps when guests access the phone.
