LG is set to unveil its flagship G2 smartphone on August 7, but according to a new leak published by PhoneArena we won’t get our hands on the 5.2-inch handset in the U.S. until Sept. The tech site claims to have received a roadmap for the upcoming device from an anonymous tipster, which reveals that the G2 will land in South Korea first in late August. The launch will be followed by releases and the U.S. with Europe trailing close behind. A global rollout expected by October.
