LG has announced that its latest flagship, the G2, will be making its U.S. debut with Verizon on September 12th and will subsequently be launched on AT&T on September 13th.
At the G2 launch event in New York on August 7th, LG has mentioned that it will start rolling out devices to all global markets within eight weeks. It is sticking to its word as the South Korean manufacturer announced today that the G2 will launch stateside on Verizon September 12th, and will be available on AT&T the following day. AT&T will start taking pre-orders from September 3rd, with all customers getting a free folio case.
The G2 features a 5.2-inch full-HD screen, Snapdragon 800 that includes a 2.26 GHz quad-core Krait 400CPU and Adreno 330 GPU. The device comes with 2 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, 13 MP camera at the back and 2.1 MP at the front, along with a 3,000 mAh battery. The mobile has LTE connectivity and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The G2 will be the hitting American shores at the same time as Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra, another Snapdragon 800-toting device.
The G2 will be launched on all four major carriers in the U.S., but as of now T-Mobile and Sprint have not announced when they intend to release the handset. LG is being proactive with the release of the G2, and for good reason. With devices like the Galaxy Note III, HTC One Max and the iPhone 5S coming in the fourth quarter, LG needs all the headstart it can get.
