LG and Verizon Unveil New G2 Smartphone

Verizon is making some headlines with their health and wellness initiative when it comes to their employees. That doesn’t mean that it isn’t also working hard to make headlines for the phones it offers up to customers as well. Verizon has teamed up with LG on a brand new phone that the companies just recently unveiled. The LG G2 is being billed as a next generation powerhouse that has a rather innovative design.

The G2 has been billed as LG’s latest “flagship” phone and is the next in the higher end “G” series Android phones. This is the first phone that will actually launch in the United States that boasts the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. That alone could mean long lines for phone aficionados who are also fans of Android’s operating system.

The phone is due to be offered by Verizon starting September 12 and will carry a price tag of $199.99 as long as you get the phone with a new two-year contract. This phone has a new rear-key design that the companies claim will take multi-tasking on a smartphone to a brand new level.

"The smartphone is our constant companion, our go-to for entertainment, organization, communication and capturing memories," said James Fishler, senior vice president, marketing, LG Electronics USA in a recent release. "With the G2, LG has taken into consideration all of these behaviors and used them to create an evolved mobile device that provides tangible user benefits truly designed for how people use their devices."

The new rear-key will serve as a sort of command center for the power and volume functions as well as access to running other features on the phone. As has become the norm with today’s smartphones, the G2 has a powerful 13mp HD rear facing camera. The phone also boasts a 5.2-inch HD display. LG’s newest “G” series phone will be running on Android’s 4.2 Jelly Bean OS.
