LG has no plans to make a Google Edition LG G2


The LG G2 was unveiled today to mostly happy faces, with the new flagship smartphone offering one of the best displays we have seen, startlingly fast processing speeds, a unique back button and almost bezel-less design and some new UI changes.

Running the LG G2 is Android 4.2.2 and for stock lovers, the natural question was is this going to get Android 4.3 soon and after that will there be a Google Edition of the phone available sometime soon.

LG sadly did not say there would be a Google Edition coming anytime soon to the LG G2, saying they want to make real penetration through the carrier market with their own version of Android.

Ken Hong, a PR for LG, did say this may change down the line. This means there is a chance when LG finishes the big 100 carrier move and consolidates its earnings, there may be a reason to bring out a LG G2 Google Edition.

We already have the HTC One and Galaxy S4 Google Edition smartphones available off-contract on the Google Play store. We have heard the Xperia Z and even the Oppo Find 5 may be getting a stock redesign soon.

The Moto X will be getting a Google Edition sometime soon, both Motorola and Google have announced. Hopefully since LG is a big Google partner, currently manufacturing the LG Nexus 4 and possibly the Nexus 5, they will be bringing the Google Edition before the end of the year.
