The South Krean phone maker announced its new flagship smartphone, the LG G2, about a week ago but the company’s representatives failed to reveal its price or availability. We’ve worried for a moment, knowing that both the Optimus G and the Optimus G Pro suffered from delays in availability. It seems though it’s not the case with the LG G2.
At the press conference where the LG G2 was shown to the world, the LG officials said that the new flagship smartphone will become available for purchase at 130 retailers from around the world sooner than two months after the launch event.
The LG G2 was already made available for purchase in its home country, South Korea, but now we are eager to see when will it hit other markets. Today we’ve heard that Clove already listed the Android-powered smartphone as available for pre-order in UK.
The British retailer has fixed a price tag of £468.00 for the 16 GB LG G2 model, being is £60 cheaper that the best-selling Android smartphone of the year, the Samsung Galaxy S4. Of course we are talking about the off-contract price, and if you wonder when Clover will start shipping the smartphone, learn that the ETA has been set for end of September.
Clover will not be the only British retailer to have the LG G2 in its portfolio, as the guys at Three already listed the terminal as “coming soon.”
In case you’ve missed the LG G2 launch event or the latest news, I remind you that the new smartphone comes with a 5.2-inch True HD-IPS + LCD display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, while sporting 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage (microSD card support is available exclusively in South Korea).
The LG G2 is powered by a Qualocomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3 GHz and Adreno 330 GPU. On the back of the handset it’s a 13 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, Geo-tagging, face detection, optical image stabilization, HDR, and support for recording full HD videos.
