The South Korean company has sent its latest flagship phone into space to test its camera and promote its upcoming global rollout.
The video, posted this week, captures a phone's eye view of an ascent into the stratosphere as well as its descent back down to Earth with a thud. Devised as much to demonstrate the LG G2's ruggedness as well as the video performance of its in-built 13MP OIS camera, the stunt is part of a wider campaign ahead of the device's global rollout which starts in the US on September 13.
A well put-together and rather elegant phone, the G2's big gimmick is that it has control buttons on its rear casing so that despite its large screen size -- 5.2-inches -- it can be used single-handedly.
LG claims that the video is a world-first and that it is made up entirely of raw footage captured by the device and no special effects or trickery were used to alter the images.
