We just reported on how Verizon’s “exclusive” version of the LG G2 might actually cause concern for users on other carriers. However, it seems like the exclusivity is limited to the U.S. as a new revelation by LG claims that the European variant of the smartphone will in fact support the Qi standard wireless charging. But there’s a caveat.
The smartphone won’t support wireless charging by default, and will require an additional accessory to enable this feature. A LG representative confirmed this to Pocket-Lint and it’s only a matter of time now until the device is launched and these accessories are put to test. Unfortunately, LG refrained from giving out a launch date or pricing details for this new accessory, but we’re hoping it will launch a few weeks after the smartphone hits markets.
To refresh your memory, the recently launched LG G2 packs a 5.2 inch Full HD IPS display, a 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, a 13MP camera sensor on the back, a 2.1MP front facing camera, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a 3,000 mAh non removable Lithium polymer battery. The smartphone is expected to arrive in the U.S. soon, with global markets slated to follow later.
