The LG G2 was announced during an August event that was filled with specs, but short on ship dates. Now that the dust has settled from the announcement, LG is ready to take the US by storm with its flagship Android phone. As expected, the G2 will land at Verizon Wireless, AT&T and T-Mobile starting next week.
Verizon Wireless is first out of the gate — selling the G2 starting September 12th for $199 with a two-year customer agreement. AT&T will kick off its sales one day later on September 13th and will match Verizon’s price point of $199 with a contract.
Of the carriers that have announced their launch plans, T-Mobile customers will have to wait the longest — all the way until September 18th to get their hands on the G2. Pricing at T-Mobile comes in at $99 down, with 24 monthly payments of $21. Sprint also is expected to sell the LG G2 along with the other big three US telecoms, but the carrier has not yet announced a launch date or pricing.
The LG G2 offers an interesting mix of high-end specs and unusual design. The phone rocks a 5.2-inch display with a 0.1-inch bezel, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor and a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization. It’s most striking feature is its power and volume buttons which are located on the back of the phone.
