T-Mobile wasn’t the only carrier keen on announcing availability details for a couple of hot, upcoming phones. Big Red — aka, Verizon — also has information to share today about the launch of both the LG G2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (with Samsung’s Galaxy Gear smart watch).

For the former, the carrier has confirmed that folks can pick it up starting September 12th for $200 after signing a new two-year contract. As for the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, we don’t have any release dates to look forward to just yet, but Verizon will be allowing folks to pre-order the dynamic duo starting tomorrow (price not yet confirmed).

The LG G2 was revealed late last month, when LG took to New York to show the world what they hope will be a solid contender up against devices from all the other big guys this holiday season.

It certainly won’t be hard to grab the attention of many with its 5.2-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.2 and more. Our hands-on time with the device taught us that it’s not one to sneeze at, though LG’s need to differentiate themselves by putting power and volume buttons on the back might have been to their detriment in areas of comfort.

As for the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear, it was just yesterday that we’d gotten our hands on these bad boys. The former is a 5.7-inch 1080p smartphone that will come with an unheard of 3GB of RAM, Samsung’s Octa Core processor (quad-core processor in certain markets), a 13 megapixel camera, and everything else your heart desires.

Of course, its unique S Pen adds a lot of great features to an already jam-packed suite of them. The Galaxy Gear, on the other hand, is a smart watch that will act as the device’s best companion. With tons of apps, the ability to get and respond to notifications, and more, the Galaxy Gear will allow you to keep up with your digital life without the need to take your phone out of your purse or pocket.

Our extensive hands-on with both these beauties can be found here, and you can bet this phone is already on our radar. We’ll be anticipating their arrival, so be sure to stay tuned to Phandroid as we hope to obtain more info about their release date on Verizon (as well as the other four US carriers set to offer it later this year).
