LG G2 Launching on Verizon September 12, T-Mobile to follow September 18


Specs wise the LG G2 is one of the most impressive Android phones of the fall. If you want to refresh your memory, you can check out our LG G2 specs showdown to see how it stacks up to against the other flagships. It’s the first to launch with the new Snapdragon 800 processor, although as we’re seeing at IFA, many others will follow.

If you’re on Verizon, you’ll have the first crack at the LG G2 stateside; the phone will arrive on September 12 both in-store and online for $199 on a 2-year contract. No specific information on off-contract pricing from Verizon, but it’ll likely mirror that of T-Mobile at $629. Remember that Verizon has the exclusive on wireless charging for the G2, if that happens to be a feature you cherish.

T-Mobile will be hot on Verizon’s heels with its G2 launch. You can actually pre-order right now. Online sales will start September 18, with in-store availability on September 25. No unique features for the T-Mobile G2, but of course you do have T-Mobile’s unique plan options allowing you to pick up the G2 for just $99 and pay off the rest of the $629 retail price over the next two years.

While LG hasn’t had a sterling reputation with US smartphone buyers over the last couple years, they swayed some Android fans with the Nexus 4 last year. And we came away impressed with the LG G2 at the launch event. We’ll do a full review in due time to let you know if we think LG has delivered both on paper and in the hand with the G2.
