We got a good look at the LG G2 during the event that took place on August 7th and it looks like those in the UK can now move forward with a preorder. The handset has arrived with Clove, which means it is contract-free. Clove has the 16GB model available in black or white and as of now it looks like the handset is expected to begin shipping sometime in late-September.

The price of the handset is listed at £390, or more specifically, at £468 with VAT being included. As far as the price and availability goes, there was also mention about how the official price and availability still needs to be confirmed. Simply put, that shipping timeline and price could change before the handset actually comes available.

Aside from the 16GB of storage, the LG G2 also sports a 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, microSD card slot, 3000 mAh battery, 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. The handset is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and has more than a few software features courtesy of LG. Some of these include Answer Me, Dual Recording/Dual Camera, Capture Plus and Clip Tray.

Another notable feature is "knock knock" which means users will be able to wake the screen with a double tap. Of course, one of the more talked about features of the G2 were the rear buttons. In this case the power button and volume rocker both sit on the back just below the camera lens. The volume buttons are touch sensitive and the power button also doubles as a quick launch to LG's QuickMemo note app.

With that in mind, we did spend quite a bit of time with the LG G2 following the announcement. We highlighted the hardware, software, camera and even those rear-facing buttons in our earlier published hands-on post.

    Did I miss something? I thought the G2 didn’t have a microSD card slot?

      You are right. I think it is the typo however Korean version apparently have microSD and removable battery….

    If Clove said they have it it usually means they do not… Availability in September gives them plenty of time to change the date as they usually do…

    Thank God when it arrives in Australia it will be equiped with dual-band 4g on a secondary network.
    Finally real connectivity speed on a next gen device that has it all …… except for Nokia’s 1020 41megapixel camera. Oh well, one can never have it all, but the G2 should suffice for a while.
    Can’t wait.
