Sprint, Verizon confirm LG G2 coming later this year
Looks like LG’s pulling out all the stops for the G2’s statewide launch. Though the company announced yesterday that the follow-up to the blockbuster Optimus G would be made available through all four major US carriers, only T-Mobile and AT&T acknowledged the G2 was coming to their respective networks. Today, the remaining two cellular giants – Sprint and Verizon – followed suit.
Sprint said it’ll offer the G2 on its 4G LTE unlimited plans later this year, when the device ships. The carrier had this to say:
[quote qtext=”Over the years, we have teamed up with LG to bring top of the line devices to our customers. I am thrilled to see our relationship grow as we open new doors together by bringing LG G2 with the benefit of Sprint’s unlimited 4G LTE plans to our lineup.1 The new Sprint Unlimited Guarantee, available with an Unlimited, My WaySM or My All-inSM plan, is the perfect match for LG G2 because our customers can enjoy the powerful camera, huge screen, fast LTE speeds and other innovative features while on the Sprint network without worrying about costly overages or sharing data. While other wireless providers are moving away from unlimited service, the Sprint Unlimited Guarantee allows our customers to lock-in unlimited talk, text and data not for just the next two years, but for the life of the line of service.” qperson=”Sprint” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]
Verizon arguably one-upped the Now Network, confirming via Twitter that customers would be able to purchase the device “soon.” Vagueness aside, Big Red helpfully released press images of their variant of the G2, which look… interesting. Can you spot the Verizon logo(s)?
No word on when the G2 will launch, exactly. We’re not even sure LG’s smartphone will launch simultaneously across carriers. At this point, unfortunately, it’s a waiting game.
