LG G2 may be very colorful, release time frames rumored
Not a day goes by without some LG G2-related leaks, rumors, or even teases straight from the Korean company itself. Those are clearly an indicator of how happy LG is with its newest flagship, the one it will finally introduce to the world on August 7.
We’ve seen the G2 countless times so far, but now it’s emerged that the superphone might be a lot more colorful than previously anticipated. Over on Twitter, some images showing extremely colorful back covers for the LG G2 have surfaced, and you can see them below.
Needless to say, have a huge grain of salt nearby for this one folks. Yes, it’s entirely possible that LG will take advantage of the G2′s removable back cover (which differentiates it from its predecessor, the G) and launch the phone in a myriad of toy-like child-like colors, desperately trying to emulate Nokia or something like that. But at the same time, what you see above could just be renders of some no-name Chinese accessory maker’s upcoming back cover line for the G2. Or these might be altogether fake. The colors do look incredibly childish to us, but let’s see what happens.
It’s clear that there’s a need for more colorful smartphones out there, and so far Nokia has led the pack in this regard, with Samsung probably being the most color-friendly Android device maker. Will LG join in? We’ll find out for sure in a couple of weeks or so.
This though isn’t the only bit of G2-related news that transpired today. A Korean publication, The Kyunghyang Shinmun, claims to have some intel about when to expect the superphone in stores.
Unsurprisingly, LG’s native country of South Korea will get first dibs on the device. The G2 is set to launch over there before the end of August. Next up, the G2 will make it to North America in September. Also in September, or early October, the phone will be out in Europe, and by the end of October it should have become globally available – whatever LG might mean by “globally” this time (since the company has a strange habit of limiting its high-end device releases to only a few dozen countries).
