We know almost everything important about the LG G2, LG’s next flagship device rumored to be one of the most impressive devices we will see in 2013 (we all know what new smartphones we have seen already). The rumors of this phone started doing rounds months ago but some of the latest revelations are the device’s AnTuTu benchmark test results, a leaked manual revealed more specs and features including a new QadBeat headset and a microSD card slot and a removable battery. The newest rumor is that the LG G2 may be officially announced to the world on Wednesday August 8th in South Korea, one day after its launch in New York tomorrow.
According to the folks at Android Authority, a South Korean news site MK News ran a story that the phone may be available in the market as soon as a day after its launch. There was however no word as to when the device may be available in other markets around the world as we have already heard that LG is planning to launch the G2 across 100 carriers within the first 3 months of unveiling. North America and Europe is however expected to get this next high end smartphone sometime in September as Verizon is rumored could start selling it sometime in September.

It will also be the second high end smartphone after the Galaxy S4 to be LTE-Advanced technology capable.
