LG unveiled its latest flagship smartphone, the 5.2-inch G2, at a press event earlier this month, but the company still hasn’t announced when the handset will hit stores. Now, Android Central is reporting that the device will be available on Verizon starting on Sept. 12 and land on AT&T a day later. It’s still unknown when the G2 will launch on Sprint and T-Mobile, though it will indeed launch on those carriers.

The LG G2 offers a number of design and software features specifically chosen based on consumer studies conducted by the South Korean company. The device comes equipped with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with OIS and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean OS with LG’s own added UI layered on top. The G2’s volume and power buttons have also been moved to the back of the device, creating a sleek and symmetrical design but not adding much to the user experience.

With the G2’s launch pegged for mid-Sept. in the U.S. we’re gearing up for a busy month. Samsung has all but confirmed it will unveil the highly-anticipated Galaxy Note III at a press conference scheduled for Sept. 4, while Apple is expected to announce two new iPhones at a media event rumored for Sept. 10.
