ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --LG Electronics USA and
Verizon Wireless today announced the official U.S. launch of the LG G2, LG's
latest flagship smartphone as part of LG's newly branded "G" series of premium
devices and the first U.S. smartphone to launch with the new Qualcomm^®
Snapdragon™ 800 processor.
Available through Verizon Wireless beginning on Sept. 12 for $199.99 with a
new two-year contract, the LG G2 blends an intuitive rear-key design with
intelligent features and powerful software to create an exceptional user
experience ideal for taking mobile multi-tasking to the next level.
"The smartphone is our constant companion, our go-to for entertainment,
organization, communication and capturing memories," said James Fishler,
senior vice president, marketing, LG Electronics USA. "With the G2, LG has
taken into consideration all of these behaviors and used them to create an
evolved mobile device that provides tangible user benefits truly designed for
how people use their devices."
The LG G2's innovative design is a first of its kind. Eliminating the need for
multiple navigation buttons, the LG G2 is equipped with a single refined rear
key that serves as the command center for power and volume functions. The
device's sleek and super-slim body provides comfortable, one-hand gripping and
its near-zero bezel delivers edge-to-edge viewing on an expansive 5.2-inch
Full HD IPS display.
Sporting an impressive 13 megapixel Full HD camera with Optical Image
Stabilization (OIS), the LG G2 gives users the freedom to capture crystal
clear images without having to pause photo-worthy moments already in motion.
Powered by the industry's most advanced mobile chipset, the Qualcomm^®
Snapdragon™ 800 Processor, the LG G2 goes beyond smartphone standards to
deliver stunning performance, rich graphics and outstanding battery
An intuitive LG G2 user experience gives consumers a wide selection of
optimized software. With the "Knock On" feature, users can bring the LG G2 to
life or set it to sleep mode by simply tapping the screen with their
fingertip. The "Answer Me" feature automatically answers calls when the LG G2
is raised to one's ear, reducing the number of missed calls caused by
accidentally hitting a wrong button. The "Slide Aside" feature allows for
faster, more efficient multi-tasking by giving users the ability seamlessly
transition between open apps.
