LG G2 Release Date Rumored for Aug. 8 in South Korea

Tomorrow is the big day for LG. The South Korean company is set to unveil its flagship G2 smartphone and although we already have a pretty good sense of the handset’s specs and design, we still don’t know when it will hit the market. It generally takes LG at least two months to launch a new device globally, but according to MK News, early adopters in South Korea may get their hands on the G2 as soon as August 8.

We’re a bit conflicted when it comes to this rumor though. LG does have a tradition of launching its devices in its home country first, so it’s not out of the question. But the G2 is expected to sport the powerful new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and it seems a bit soon for the company to be able to roll out a smartphone with the still-new CPU. Then again, Samsung is already offering a Snapdragon 800-powered Galaxy S4 in South Korea, so it’s definitely not impossible.

Aside from its powerful chipset, the LG G2 is also expected to come equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, a 2,610mAh battery and a 13-megapixel main camera. The phablet also features a unique design, with the volume rocker and power buttons located on the back of the device. LG is set to unveil its new smartphone tomorrow in New York, and TechnoBuffalo will be in attendance to bring you live coverage of the event.
