LG hasn’t left much to the imagination where its new flagship LG G2 is concerned. While most smartphone makers go to great lengths to keep unannounced devices a secret, LG has already named its new hero phone and shared a number of details.  The phone will be unveiled during a press conference on Wednesday, August 7th, and now a new report suggests it may launch the very same day. Korean-language MK News reports that the G2 will become available for purchase in South Korea immediately following its debut at LG’s press conference in New York City. Because of the time zone difference, the phone’s actual release date will be August 8th in South Korea, if the report pans out. Unfortunately, MK News makes no mention of wider availability so it is unclear when the G2 might roll out in the United States. The G2 is expected to feature a 5.2-inch full HD 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel rear camera. Photos of the phone leaked late last month.
