As the smartphone market prepares for the release of another flagship device, this time LG’s G2 smartphone, we have another example of how manufacturers are compressing the time between announcement and availability. LG will be holding an event in New York City tomorrow to unveil the new LG G2. Reports from Korean-based MK News indicate the new device will be in stores in that country on August 8th, only one day after the official reveal. That is consistent with previous rumors about the release schedule that put Korean availability soon after the phone was announced by LG.
According to reports, LG is planning to make the device available on 100 carriers worldwide within two to three months of the official release. This will supposedly include four major carriers in the U.S. – AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.
TalkAndroid will be on the ground at the LG event tomorrow, so be sure to check back for all the details about LG’s new flagship device.
