The upcoming flagship LG G2 smartphone has been in the news a lot lately. Thanks to offering an impressive 5.2-inch display, being the first phone with Qualcomm’s 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, and for the fact that the buttons are on the back and not the sides. We know it’s going to be announced August 7th, but when will it hit the streets? Head on past the break to find out.
LG has been busy the past month hyping up this new smartphone, and they’ve sent multiple invites for an August 7th unveiling. However, we have no clue when the device will actually become available. This is important considering the Galaxy Note III is arriving late September (and announced early Sept) and they’ll face stiff competition from Moto as well.
While we don’t have an exact release date today, multiple sources out of Korea (LG’s stomping grounds) have confirmed the device will indeed launch and hit retail stores in late August in Korea, followed by an early to mid September release in the US. Likely on AT&T and possibly others, then follow to Europe and global releases in October.
As a refresher the LG G2 sports a 5.2-inch edge-to-edge 1080p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13 megapixel rear camera, likely Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (hopefully 4.3 though) is super sleek with volume controls and sensors on the back, not the sides, and it even sports stereo speakers on the bottom.
This device is going to be LG’s flagship for the remainder of 2013, and it’s highly plausible it will also be the base in which Google models the Nexus 5.
Update: Looking a bit closer to the details it looks like LG’s aiming for a hero strategy and this will hit AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. We’ll see.
