photos – LG G2 excels at doing what matters most in a device
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- September 9, 2013
Sprint (NYSE:S) and LG Electronics today announced the highly anticipated LG
G2 smartphone will be available in time for the holidays with the benefit of
Sprint’s unlimited 4G LTE data plans^1. More information on the availability
date will be given at a later time.
LG G2 will be available for $199.99 with a new two-year service agreement or
eligible upgrade (excluding taxes and surcharges). New and existing customers
can pre-order LG G2 beginning Friday, Oct. 11, at www.sprint.com/lgg2. All
consumers who take advantage of the online pre-order will receive a free Quick
Window case ($49.99 value) with the G2 device.
LG G2 smartphone customers who sign up for Sprint’s new Unlimited, My Way^SM
plan or My All-in^SM plan are eligible for the Sprint Unlimited Guarantee. The
Sprint Unlimited Guarantee gives customers unlimited talk (calls to any
wireline or mobile phone), text and data while on the Sprint network for the
life of the line of service^2. The new Unlimited, My Way rate plans start for
as little as $80 per month (excludes taxes and surcharges).
“Continuing to raise the bar in Android innovation, we are thrilled to team up
again with LG to bring another top-of-the-line device to our customers,” said
David Owens, vice president-Product Management and Logistics, Sprint. “LG G2
brings everything together in a device with a comfortable, functional,
convenient and beautiful design. With the multitude of Android apps available
for download, LG G2 and Sprint’s new Unlimited Guarantee plans make an ideal
pair for today’s multimedia, multitasking lifestyles.”
The first U.S. smartphone to launch with the new Qualcomm^® Snapdragon™ 800
processor, LG G2 is remarkably thin and light and features a massive 5.2-inch,
1080p IPS LCD display. Along with a processor as powerful as those in many
laptops, LG G2 provides features that maximize on-screen multitasking with the
simultaneous use of multiple apps. LG G2 is also equipped with 24-bit/192kHz
Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like sound quality and a 13-megapixel
Full HD camera with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), giving users the
ability to capture crystal clear images while in motion.
“In addition to an impressive lineup of smart features, LG G2’s innovative
design makes it a stand-out device in the current mobile marketplace,” said
James Fishler, senior vice president-Marketing, LG Electronics USA. “Equipped
with a single rear key that controls multiple functions of the device and
gives users a nearly edge-to-edge viewing experience on a 5.2-inch HD IPS
display, LG G2 is the ultimate example of intelligent features meeting
LG G2 brings to users an unprecedented smartphone experience and helpful
customization features such as:
*KnockON – instead of hitting a power button, simply tap twice on the
display to wake the G2 from its sleep. It's a nice convenience that goes
hand-in-hand with Answer Me, which automatically answers calls when you
put the phone to your ear.
*Slide Aside – allows users to do a three-finger gesture to "slide" open
apps off the screen for multitasking.
*Text Link – another interesting idea, where the phone takes relevant text
and inserts embeddable links to them in other apps.
*Guest Mode – also known as ‘Kid Mode,’ which allows another user to access
the phone by drawing a different gesture on the lock screen with a
secondary unlock pattern^3.
