LG has announced their flagship 2013 smartphone in two new colors. There’s not much surprise here — there’s red, and then there’s gold. They’re both identical to the original models under the hood, with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 5.2-inch 1080p display, 13 megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and more. The only difference is that these kits have a fresh coat of paint.
The Red LG G2 is of some sort of bright red shade. We can’t say for sure what shade this is, but it would most definitely stand out in a crowd. The golden model is more reserved. It’s not actual gold or gold-plated, obviously, but it does attempt to give off that feeling. Some would say it has a rather tacky feeling, though these things always come down to personal taste so you’ll have to decide that for yourself.
We’re not sure if we’ll be seeing these devices launch in widespread fashion. Select Singaporean carriers have already announced plans to carry it, but that’s about as much as we’ve heard up to this point. We wouldn’t count on being able to snag one unless you import, though we imagine it’s probably not worth going through that sort of trouble when you could just as easily by yourself a new case.
