LG exec shares G2 launch plans
LG’s got a press event coming up in New York on August 7, and unless it’s just been messing with us through all of its teases and announcements so far, we’re going to witness the debut of the manufacturer’s new G2 flagship. While that much feels like a certainty, we still have questions about just how the phone will arrive and ultimately go up for sale. Luckily for us, LG’s CFO has been talking to the press, and has revealed some of those details.
According to the exec, South Korea will get the G2 in early August – presumably, that could happen immediately following the August 7 event. Following that, North America will see G2 sales begin sometime in September, followed by Europe and other global markets in October.
We also learn a little about carrier support, with Verizon in the US called-out by name as one getting the G2. That’s almost certainly not an exclusive, though, as evidence has already pointed to hardware support for other US networks.
