LG G2 Coming To 6 Major Carriers In Canada This Fall
Following recent announcements from carriers in the U.K and U.S., Canadian operators have now started to make public their plans for LG’s latest flagship smartphone, the G2.
Canada will share the same 5.2-inch G2 as the U.S., and Bell, Rogers, SaskTel, Telus, Videotron and Wind Mobile have all declared that they will be carrying the much-anticipated handset this fall.
All-in-all the G2 is a respectable high-end device, packing a a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 32GB of internal storage, 4G LTE capabilities and a 3,000 mAh battery.
We currently have no information with regards to a specific launch date or actual pricing for LG’s G2, but we suspect that it’s more than likely that you’ll be able to grab this phone on a 2-year contract free of charge, starting at around $40 per month.
