Last-minute LG G2 launch rumors, hardware pics arrive


Things are getting down to the wire for the LG G2, and tomorrow everything’s going official. Of course, it’s not like LG has been overly secretive about the G2 leading up to this event, but we’re still anxious to see how well (or not) everything ends up coming together. In these last hours before tomorrow’s launch, some new rumors and leaks continue to trickle in, and today we get another look at some G2 components, as well as hear about possible retail availability.

Last month, LG’s CFO talked about when certain markets would get the G2, and mentioned early August for the initial South Korean sales. We wondered if that might mean having sales immediately follow the launch event, but that was just guesswork. Now, though, the theory gets some backing, with a report out of South Korea claiming that G2 sales will start on August 8. There’s no further mention of other markets, but if LG is in such a hurry to get the G2 out the door, we’re optimistic that the September availability we’ve heard for North America could mean earlier in the month, rather than later.

We’ve already seen the G2 fully assembled, but up top we’ve got some new shots of the phone’s display. That 5.2-inch panel should have a nice, big 1080p resolution.

Are you excited for this guy yet, or are you keeping your expectations tempered?
