LG G2 Availability Confirmed on Verizon Through a Signup Page
We’ve told you yesterday that the LG G2 is available for pre-order in the UK. Now it’s the time for Verizon to setup the signup page. It’s not quite a pre-order on Verizon and they don’t even state a specific release date for the G2, but you can signup to receive an email once the smartphone becomes available.
There isn’t much information on Verizon’s page, unfortunately, but just some technical features and a photo of the device. Though we expect them the release date to be pretty close, because they don’t usually setup signup pages too early before the official release.
We will probably see a pre-order page soon, once they manage to fulfill their stocks. At the moment, Verizon is the only US carrier to announce the smartphone, but we should see it on the other carriers too in the future.
The LG G2 is already available in South Korea and, as we’ve told you already, available for pre-order in the UK, where it’s priced at £468 ( $727 ) without a contract.
The device comes with a 5.2-inch 1,080×1,920 True HD IPS display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2.3Ghz quad-core Krait 400 GPU and an Adreno 330 GPU. It also sports a 13MP camera with really nice features, like Geo-tagging, face detection, optical image stabilization, HDR, and LED flash. The camera can also record 1080p video.
The LG G2 comes with a proprietary UI that failed to impress at first sight, but we have to get our hands on it in order to let you know what we think. Once it gets released, we’ll do a hands-on review and tell you how it actually feels it.
Unfortunately it hasn’t been stated, but we guess it’s going to come with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, which might be soon updated to 4.3. It’s been rumored that Google’s 2013 Nexus 5 is going to be based on the LG G2, though nothing is clear at the moment. The LG G2 is really a powerful high-end smartphone with a not-so-decent price tag and we’ve seen Google trying to keep the prices lower, which leads us to believe they will skip it.
What do you think about the G2? Do you plan on buying it or do you prefer the Galaxy S4 / HTC One or any other competitor ?
