LG has made some pretty entertaining marketing videos to advertise its latest flagship smartphone. Those who have been enticed by the LG G2 won’t have to wait too long as LG promises to bring the G2 to its key markets, the US and Germany, starting this month in preparation for a rollout worldwide.
Here’s a brief rundown of the G2’s beefy hardware specs. The smartphone is powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and 2 GB of RAM. It sports a 5.2-inch full HD IPS LCD, a 13 megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera. It comes with 16 GB of internal storage but unfortunately does not have a microSD card slot. It’s 3000 mAh battery is also not replaceable. One unique hardware feature of the G2 is the location of the power and volume buttons which are found at the rear of the phone instead of the usual edges.

LG also threw in a variety of software features, including a “knock knock” feature that lets users wake up the screen with a double tap gesture. Plug & Pop offers users recommended actions after plugging in a headset or a USB cable. Quick Remote transforms the G2 into a remote control with support for a wide variety of devices and models. And Guest Mode shows a pre-selected list of apps when other users access the phone using a secondary unlock pattern. You can watch one of their video ads promoting the G2’s features below.
No exact date has been given for the launch, but there has been word of the G2 arriving on major US carriers around mid-September. The LG G2 will also be making an appearance at the IFA trade show this week, so those lucky enough to be there might get a chance to see and use the device for themselves.
