G2-Thumb

No one likes to be last. The LG G2 was originally slated to become available online from T-Mobile on September 18th, nearly a week after competitors Verizon Wireless and AT&T were to start offering the handset. AT&T already jumped the gun when they started offering sales online a week ago, and now T-Mobile is offering the G2 at the same time as everyone else, at least online.

Unlike AT&T and Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile offers the G2 for $99.99 upfront.

Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have all gotten their houses in order for the launch of LG's new flagship, but Sprint seems to be a bit behind the curve. The carrier has only just announced a pre-order for the G2, and it's October 11th - almost a month after AT&T and Verizon will have the phone on shelves, and a solid two weeks after T-Mobile. Sprint doesn't even have an official launch date for the phone, instead stating in the press release that the G2 will come "in time for the holidays," and that more availability information will be available at a later date.

LG is hoping to step out of Samsung's shadow a bit with the new G2. Having dropped the Optimus naming scheme, the G2 is the company's 2013 flagship, and it has the specs to earn the name. If the raw numbers don't get you, it's always got those back-facing buttons.

AT&T is asking $199 for the G2 on a 2-year contract, or $575 without subsidy. If you want to save a little scratch up front, AT&T Next gets you the phone for $27 per month.

Update: AT&T's LG G2 will go on sale on Friday, September 13th for $199.99 on contract, or $27 a month via the AT&T Next plan. The carrier will be accepting online sales on September 6th, tomorrow.

Now that most of the big guns have showed off their latest smartphones at IFA, you've got a pretty good idea of what's in store for the fall hardware parade. If you've decided on LG's G2 flagship, you won't have to wait very long on Verizon or T-Mobile.

LG has finally unveiled the latest addition to its "G" series line of flagship phones: the LG G2. They are clearly aiming at Samsung with this device, but is it enough to stand up against every other flagship on the market?

As with all modern smartphones, the screen on the G2 dominates the front face. But LG has taken steps to make this even more prominent - bezel size has been minimized on all sides to make this phone nearly "all screen." Thanks to LG’s use of on-screen buttons, when the display is off, the front of the device looks incredibly sleek.

LG had hardly introduced its new G2 flagship when they mentioned that it would come to the "big four" American carriers, meaning AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. They're bringing the fight to Samsung in this carrier-driven market. T-Mobile has confirmed the statement in the LG event: there's already a basic website dedicated to the new 5.2-inch Android handset, complete with the compulsory information signup. There's currently no date or price for the phone on any carrier.

Like with most other devices, there has been no shortage of leaks and rumors surrounding LG's latest flagship, the G2. But now, all the questions have been answered, rumors put to rest, and leaks are no longer necessary – LG just unveiled its newest powerhouse to the world.

Just as previous rumors suggested, the G2 is filled to the brim with high-end specs that almost immediately make this the cream of the Android crop:

  • 5.2-inch 1080x1920 IPS display
  • 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16/32GB storage options
  • 13MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
  • Rear-facing power button and volume control (directly below camera) – long-pressing launches QuickMemo and the camera
  • Bottom-facing speakers
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm
  • Android 4.2.2

The G2 has the largest display that still fits in the "one hand use" category – thanks to the thin 2.65mm side bezel, it manages to keep the width to a mere 2.7 inches.

In a short press release sent out this evening, LG announced that it would be ditching the word (is it a word?) "Optimus" from its premium branding, opting to keep only the "G".

Furthermore, the release reaffirms the name of the company's upcoming flagship – G2.

The release contained one other tidbit – going forward, "LG's premium 4:3 display smartphones will be rebranded as simply 'Vu'." Yes, there will be at least one more Vu, if not more.

The Optimus G2, which we've been waiting for, has been subject to rumor after rumor. A few days ago, we finally heard something official that probably tells us the G2 will have a Snapdragon 800 processor (LG and Qualcomm stopped just short of explicitly naming the device), but tonight we've got something a little more fun.

Infamous leaker @EVLeaks has just dropped a series of still images that look to be from a video subtitled "Learning from you." They show the G2 and its rumored back-mounted controls.

Earlier this evening, LG (finally) announced the successor to the Optimus G. While the phone was not explicitly named in LG's press release, we can only assume it will be the Optimus G2, the phone we've been hoping for for some time now.
