LG G2 will launch with more than 100 carriers around the globe


LG has lofty expectations for the upcoming G2 smartphone. How lofty? Let’s say they are already forecasting 10 million units (translate) for the device with weeks to go before it’s announced. Sure, it pales in comparison to other best-selling smartphone of the day, but it’s much higher than previous models.

LG is expected to launch (translate) the G2 on more than 100 carriers around the globe, starting with South Korea in August. With North American and Europe getting their hands on the phone in September and the rest of the world in October, we should see some serious ad campaigns ramping up for the the back-to-school and holiday buying seasons.
