MOBILE OPERATOR Three has announced that it will sell LG's flagship G2 smartphone, confirming that it will see a UK release.
Three hasn't revealed many details, and hasn't said when we can expect the LG G2 to arrive or how much it will cost. However, LG said that the device will appear in Europe within the "next eight weeks" and if the handset's specifications are anything to go by, it's likely to fetch more than £500.
Sylvia Chind, head of devices at Three said, "LG has created a true powerhouse smartphone in the G2 that combines their technological expertise from design through to features.
"We believe this phone will encourage greater use of more demanding data applications which makes Three the perfect partner."
LG's G2 smartphone was unveiled at an event in New York on Wednesday, as the firm looks to challenge the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One smartphones.
The flagship device squeezes a 5.2in 1080p HD IPS touchscreen into the same sized package as a 4.7in smartphone, LG said at the unveiling, and is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Google's Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean mobile operating system. Like Samsung, LG has furnished the handset with its own software features, including Answer Me for automatic call answering and Quickremote for TV remote functionality.
The device also features Graphic RAM and a 3,000mAh battery, which together should offer a full day of usage, a 13MP rear-facing camera with optical image stablisation, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, and either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. µ
