LG G2 UK release date confirmed alongside pricing details

The LG G2 UK release date has been officially confirmed, with representatives of the company telling TrustedReviews the eagerly awaited phone will hit retailers during the first week of October.

Having been officially unveiled back on August 7, the LG G2 is lining up as a quad-core rival to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, with the Korean manufacturer now suggesting its new flagship phone could touch down within a matter of weeks.

We are looking at the first week of October,” Shaun Musgrave LG’s Product Marketing Manager said when discussing the upcoming LG G2 UK release date.

The first time LG has looked to narrow down the phone’s UK arrival, back at the handset’s New York based launch the manufacturer was particular vague on the LG G2 UK release date.

The company stated: “The LG G2 will be rolled out globally in over 130 carriers in the next eight weeks starting in South Korea followed by North America, Europe and other key markets.”

Addressing the LG G2 price, Musgrave added: “We obviously can’t set the RRP but we would expect it to be around the £350 to £400 price mark or either £32 per month or £37 per month on contract.”

With a high-end spec that could put it firmly atop the highly competitive smartphone market, the LG G2 features list sees a 5.2-inch 1080p Full HD display included alongside a speedy 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and the option of 16GB or 32GB internal storage.

Lining up at just 8.9mm thick, the LG G2 sports a heavily reduced bezel which keeps the phone’s overall size down while offering plenty of on-screen real estate. It hosts a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a second 2.1-megapixel snapper up front.

This premium collection of innards marks a notable step forward for LG on the smartphone scene, a fact the company is happy to acknowledge.

“We are showing confidence in this device which is a first for a long time,” Musgrave said. He went on to describe the LG G2 as “the first LG handset where we’ve got a lot of anticipation around it.”
