Reminder: LG G2 unveiling kicks off within the hour! Watch the live stream here

lg optimus g2 event

In case you’ve forgotten, LG has a pretty big event going down in New York City this morning. The company has all but confirmed the unveiling of the LG G2, the first flagship phone with the simplified “G” branding. We’re not sure how we feel about “Optimus” taking its leave, but it won’t matter — if the phone’s good enough, it doesn’t matter what it’s called. We’re on the ground in New York City and will be on-hand to bring you all the live coverage and hands-on that we can. Stay tuned, as things kick off at 11am Eastern! Be sure to follow along with the live stream below if you’re interested.

    Here’s hoping for a less freaky than Samsungs launch event

    C’mon. “LG Optimus G” was a ridiculous name. We should feel very good about it leaving.

    Side note: this phone could be a decent approximation of the next Nexus …

      The name LG Optimus G was respected by anyone who knew its capabilities. When it was launched, it was the most powerful smartphone on the planet……….HANDS DOWN. I know because I owned one, and nothing anybody had at the time came close.

      That’s a terrific name.

    That was starting to get really weird with the singing kid, I was like “wtf is happening?!”

    What is it about Asian companies that always seem to creep-ify their launch events lol? They always act as if their new phones are the cure for cancer or something lol

      You’re talking kid’s talk. Don’t be silly like that.

      • John Bailey

        Awwwww you sound like a Russian nanny when you tell people how they are allowed to talk…. how cute.

        • Jillxz

          It’s just that some people who are supposedly adults , talk like adolescents. If the show fits , wear it.

          • John Bailey

            Well I’ve got news for you, the internet isn’t your place to tell people what they can or cannot say. You are completely free to move along to one of the other 9,658,325,985,379,691 websites on the internet if you don’t like what you see. Your lack of a sense of humor is depressing. Kill yourself. Kthnx
