Not content to let Samsung have all the fun with its recently announced curved smartphone, LG will soon introduce the G Flex, its own smartphone with a curved display that has appeared in leaked photographs
Rarely does a phone like the LG G2 arrive. It's faster than most, has a great camera, and features a design unlike anything else on the market. Does that make the G2 the best phone or just another Android smartphone?
Sprint has become the last of the major U.S. carriers to announce its launch plans for the LG G2, and the limited release plans shared by the carrier confirm that it will also be the last of the bunch to actually put the device on sale.
We've already seen the LG G2 up close and knew that the phone would launch in the U.S. this month. Now we know exactly when. Verizon Wireless has announced that it will sell the G2 beginning next week, and its model of the phone will have something that others do not.
LG has confirmed that the LG G2 global launch will start in two big markets in North America and Europe this month. That's about all the company said because it still hasn't provided any details about pricing or carriers; all we can definitively say is that the G2 will launch in the United States and Germany in September. In the U.S., individual carriers will likely be the place to learn when and where to purchase the G2. LG has already confirmed that all four of the major carriers will offer the G2, so we just have to wait on AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile to solidify the details.
LG briefly flirted wit the Android tablet market when it released its Optimus Tabs running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but it didn't do much else in the segment. The Korean manufacturer has confirmed plans to release a new tablet soon by posting a teaser video on YouTube.
Google has managed to convince Samsung and HTC to sell their flagship smartphones with standard Android software rather than their own user experiences, but don't expect LG to do the same for its recently announced G2 smartphone.
The LG Quick Window is LG's answer to the Samsung S View. It's an obvious, unabashed take on a small but useful tool debuted by its chief rival, but the Quick Window will probably be even more useful to the LG G2.
So that's what LG had up its sleeve? The LG G2 debuted today and it was hard to get excited about a product that has seen so many leaks and premature confirmations, but there was still room for impressions of the first Android device with a Snapdragon 800.
LG today announced its 2013 flagship smartphone, the LG G2, with the kind of specifications that may please the many consumers disappointed by the Moto X. For starters, the phone features the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 that offers 2.26 GHz in each of its four cores.
