LG G2 gets its official launch

As we mentioned yesterday, most of the details were already in the public domain, not to mention an official press shot. So the launch event for the LG G2 was really just a matter of confirming everything.

That's pretty much what LG did in New York, with its next flagship phone shown off and detailed. LG also gave us a hint of just when we might see it too. But only a hint, with the phone initially scheduled for South Korea over the next couple of months.

As for the hardware itself, it measures 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm, weighing in at 143g. Within that frame, you'll find a 5.2-inch True HD-IPS + 1920 x 1080 screen. Beyond that, the G2 has a powerful 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 graphics and 2GB RAM to keep things more than ticking over.

It also has 32GB of storage (a microSD card slot will bump that up further), a nano-SIM slot, a 13-megapixel camera with LED flash is on the rear, a 2.1-megapixel networking camera and that much talked about volume control on the back, which is quirky if nothing else. 4G models will be offered in some territories, with Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and DLNA support also present. Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is the OS, but an upgrade might follow soon.

As we mentioned above, Korea gets this first, with the US following, then Europe. Look out for a specific UK date, which is likely to be nearer the end of the year.
