LG G2 set to arrive in the US mid-September

by: Robert TriggsAugust 21, 2013

LG's latest 5.2 inch display claims to pack more than 6 million pixels into it, making it one of the most advanced displays out there.

The LG G2 is set to offer some of the best hardware on the market when it finally launches, and if you’re eagerly waiting to get your handsets on LG’s latest flagship then I have some good news for you, we’re less than a month away from launch day in the US.

Sources familiar with LG’s release plans state that Verizon will launch the G2 one day ahead of rival carrier AT&T. Verizon will make the handset available on September 12th, whilst AT&T will have the G2 on its shelves the following day. However, AT&T will also be opening up its pre-sales as early as the 3rd of September and will be giving away a free folio case to its pre-order customers as well. These dates line up pretty well with what we were already expecting, so hopefully a European release will also occur in a similar time frame.

Sprint and T-Mobile will also be selling the handset, although we don’t current know the exact release dates for those carriers, but you can probably expect it to be around the same sort of time.

So, is anyone interested? If you’re still a little unsure, don’t forget to check out our initial hands-on with the LG G2.

    I think this phone is actually going to be the unrealized champ of 2013. Only thing that hurts it is the continued cheap “look”. And it has nothing to do with plastic, plastic is great, it’s the damn mirrors finish shine that’s hurting these phones if you want my opinion. Matte is the way to go!

      I agree. If, by the time I’m ready to upgrade, I know that this has developer support, and depending on what the next nexus is all about (of course), this could be my next phone. I just feel it’s future-proof more than the others right now.

    Coincidence sprint’s g2 landing page has Sept 24 as the date on the phone? Perhaps no

    I really like the g2. I told myself i wasnt going any smaller than my note 2 but im thinking about making an exception….I think the button placement is genius… all depends on what samsung brings to the table with the note 3

      I don’t see sammy being able to pull off too much with the Galaxy note 3. Maybe 3GB of ram and a bigger battery and better display. Hopefully I’m wrong but I’m def wowed by the G2 and prob going to sell my HTC One and get it.

    The G2 is easily a competitor for every other high-end smartphone out there. The “weird” button layout works for us, and it’s paired with some smart touch functions that are well thought out. The phone looks and feels great, and just works as a smartphone should.
