LG G2 official availability: what we know so far

August 7, 2013

lg g2 event (5)

As expected, the LG G2 is now official! We’ve already had a chance to check out the specs and learn a little bit about the G2, now the big question is when the heck can you get your hands on this bad boy?

As per LG, the G2 will arrive to all four major U.S. carriers, and more than 130 other markets across the globe within the next eight weeks, starting first with South Korea. Unfortunately, not much else has been revealed just yet in terms of release date or pricing.  We do know that the handset will make its way to the United States, Europe, Asia, South Korea and likely Canada – but that’s about the extent of it.

USA

Again no word on pricing or arrival, but we do know that the LG G2 will be available from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon in the coming weeks/months.  Although having word from LG should be enough, it’s also worth noting that both T-Mobile and Sprint have also confirmed their intentions to bring out the LG G2 “soon”.

Thanks to previously leaked press shots, we already knew the phone would at the very least arrive in a black color option, but the G2 is now confirmed to have a white version as well.

South Korea

Just yesterday we reported that the LG G2 was rumored to arrive on August 8th, while this has yet to be confirmed we do know that LG plans to bring the handset to South Korea first, with other regions to follow in the months to come. Whether or not that means as soon as tomorrow remains unseen.

UK

While we don’t know much about what carriers in Europe will or won’t get the LG G2, the UK carrier Three has now confirmed that it will feature the LG G2. We don’t know when or for how much, only that it is “coming soon”.

developing… Will keep you updated as we learn more region-specific details!

    Where’s those prices?

      Yeah. It says pricing in the title, but… no pricing! Was the pricing info that we don’t know pricing?

      • Andrew Grush

        Changed the title. I have this marked as “developing” and hoped to be able to get the pricing info in ASAP. Unfortunately, the press event is now over and still no further details on pricing or what all regions it will arrive to. We’ll keep this paged updated as we learn more! Thanks everyone.

          Thanks Andrew.

    Come on Nexus 5!!!

    • Cal Rankin

      With what the G2 and the new Nexus 7 indicate, I’m looking forward to the Nexus 5 if it’s made by LG (I wouldn’t mind HTC, but that’s beside the point). Hopefully, a full HD, big screen, plus a fantastic processor, and if the cellular Nexus 7 is any indication, compatible with LTE networks on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. Hopefully the price is low, too.

    I assume this article is really a place holder as it says nothing about pricing or availability other than it will be available in the US and South Korea and on all 4 major US carriers.

  • ryallen

    I’ll buy one if it’s under $600 unlocked.

    Sadly, I can’t see anything on this LG G2 that makes me walk away from the Sony Xperia Ultra or Lenovo K900. Sure it’s a very nice device.

    Great, another phone “coming soon” to Verizon…total bs. What’s the point of announcing phones 8 weeks in advance? They’re old news by the time they release.

    • PuzzledObserver

      May be the availability is staged around the world within a 8 week period? Small quantities in small market first and bigger quantities in big market last?

    VERY IMPRESSIVE !

    i was surprised Li-Pol 3,000mAh battery Removable!

    microSD

    all are impressive specs…. SOLD!

    • okamsrazor

      What are you talking about? Non-removable battery and no SD card slot.

      • onlygoodtime88

        lol

  • okamsrazor

    I was excited…until I saw it is just another plastic phone with no SD card.

  • EvenInTheDarkestHour

    ok, let’s play the “name that price” game…I’d bet $549 off contract 16 gb, $599 32gb, or $199 and $249 on. What’d you think?

    • PuzzledObserver

      I think that Motorola will not agree with you. Because if you are right, their new line Moto X is going to collect dust on the shelves.

    • tomn1ce

      It’s more like off contract at $600 for the 16GB and $650 for the 32GB

    Supply chain for the LG Nexus 4 was atrocious! Expect nothing different for this LG device even after the ridiculous 8 week lead time announcement has expired. Maybe by Thanksgiving will you see this phone in the US in sufficient quantities. They have no idea of the demand for this phone. Production will only ramp up if there is a large enough demand. G2 will likely be produced in very low qualities, initially. This phone is going to compete with the supply chain for the LG Nexus 5 by the time it comes Stateside. Lol! Fail!
