LG G2 announced in Gold and Red



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.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. If the mid-frame wasn’t stupidly expensive and time consuming to replace, I would for sure make mine red.

  2. I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve read and seen of the G2, but I don’t want to get last year’s phone while all the new phones are coming out in the next two months. Here’s to hoping they release a G2+ in March.

    1. The hardware in the G2 is top notch, you would not be hurting yourself by picking one up even now. I am normally real quick to be looking for an upgrade but I am very content with my G2.

  3. I don’t get the whole color option thing… I would think 90% of people place their phones in cases that cover the phone. I have never bought a phone for it’s color… I may buy a case with the colors that I want or such but never the phone. But I guess some like to keep their phones naked and show the stock colors.

    1. Those S-cases where half is transparent look good on colored phones.

  4. Surprise……the G2 looks horrible in gold when compared to the iPhone and HTC One (non 24k gold option lol)

    1. It looks better in person. PhoneArena has pics of it. Looks SO MUCH better than the renders.

      1. The color looks better, I agree, but the texture and/or style still looks horrible in comparison to the smoothness and classy style of the metal on the HTC and iPhone

  5. Gold plastic. Ew.

  6. That red is tits

  7. Phatman…. how is tits used in your sentence?

    1. BigCiX, how is it not? Did you grow up in 16th or 17th century?

      If so:

      That blood hue is the mammary organs

  8. Only the iPhone looks decent in good honestly. But the red G2 looks pretty nice.

    1. It’s strange but one of my colleagues at work (who’s had an iPhone for probably about 2 years) thinks the iPhone is getting a bit boring. Granted he’s one person and not a techie by any means, but the static and rigid software functions and appearance of the iPhone might finally be sinking in with their fans.

      1. I meant that hold looks best on the iPhone vs other phones. But the iPhone 6 should have a redesign and a bigger display so we shall see.

  9. I got the best part of the G2 on my ONE, the tap-to-wake, so who needs it.
