European LG G2 will feature wireless charging through separate case

LG confirmed that an optional case with wireless charging capabilities would be made available to European customers.
August 16, 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.

Ahead of the launch of the G2, LG announced that its latest flagship would roll out to hundreds of carriers from around the world by October. And indeed, the impressive 5.2-inch device has already been put up for pre-order by a number of European and North American retailers, while the largest US carrier, Verizon put up a sign-up page for the device.

There’s a small thing to know, though – Verizon will get an exclusive version that supports wireless charging. While we’re a bit confounded about LG’s decision to offer such a desirable feature to a single carrier in a single market, it looks that at least the European users of the LG G2 will be offered an alternative. According to Pocket-lint, LG confirmed that G2 owners in Europe will be offered an optional case that supports wireless charging.

Clearly, using a case to support wireless charging isn’t optimal, or even feasible for many users, but, it’s better than nothing. It’s not clear for now whether or not LG will sell the wireless charging case for the G2 in more markets. Also, Verizon’s exclusivity on the built-in model might be temporary, though we wouldn’t hold our breath on it.
