Details continue to emerge about the upcoming launch of the LG G2. Following some information revealed by none other than the company’s CFO and another executive comes word that LG has set a goal of selling 10 million units. To accomplish this, Korea’s MK News reports that the manufacturer will have its new LG G2 flagship smartphone available through about 100 carriers within three months of its announcement on August 7th.
The global launch will start with South Korea in August with North America and Europe to follow in September. Additional markets will then launch in October.
The LG G2 will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. It is also expected to come with Google Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 5.2-inch FHD display, LTE-A support, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera with OIS, a 2,450mAh battery and wireless charging. Its most distinctive quality may be its volume buttons located on the back rather than on the side of the device.
LG has in the past taken far longer to roll out devices to global markets. With new smartphones being announced at a frenzied pace, even a three month delay can significantly blunt demand for a device as consumers get distracted by other devices. It appears that LG has learned from past mistakes.
