Tomorrow morning at 11am Eastern Standard Time, LG is going to be announcing their new flagship smartphone, the G2. This thing looks amazing. It features a 5.2 inch 1080p IPS display and will be powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. For everyone who won't be able to make it to the live press event in New York City, LG is set to stream the event to us via YouTube. We won't have to miss it.
LG went live with a G2 site that you can find here. We're thankful that we'll be able to watch the event live. Unfortunately, we can't all be in New York City tomorrow morning.
Rumor is that the device will be available in Korean markets beginning August 8th, only one day after it will be made official. We also know that it will be available from all four major U.S. wireless carries, as well as U.S Cellular. We don't have dates for any other of these global releases, but we will find out all of that tomorrow morning.
LG has to be banking on the LG G2 to continue building on the success it has seen with the Nexus 4, Optimus G, and Optimus G Pro. The move to offer the device across all of the major wireless carriers in the U.S is a smart one. Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint customers should be excited to get their hands on this fantastic looking smartphone. The spec listing looks impressive:
- 5.2 inch, 1920 x 1080 IPS display
- Gorilla Glass 3 front screen
- 2.3 GHz quad-core CPU
- Adreno 330 GPU
- 2 GB of RAM
- 32 GB of internal storage
- 13 megapixel rear camera
- LTE and HSPA connectivity
- 2,610 mAh battery
Press renders of the LG G2 leaked online this evening, too. The images show a device that look well-built. The placement of the power button and volume rocker on the back of the phone is a unique choice. The design seems like a solid one. When you're talking on the phone, your finger naturally rests on the back of the phone. Having the volume controls right under your finger makes sense.
Tune in tomorrow for all of the details on the new LG G2. We'll have everything here on Android Headlines for you.
