Reports from Korea’s MK News say that the next-generation LG Optimus will become available for purchase in South Korea immediately after its debut in New York City. The debut is scheduled for August 7 in New York City, but due to time zone differences it won’t be launched until August 8 in Korea.

Pictures of the phone leaked in late July.
