So what exactly happened with the LG G2 and the microSD card slot we were expecting? Well, that's a perk reserved for Korean buyers, as it now turns out. The Korean LG G2 variant has a removable back cover, behind which are situated its user-replaceable battery and its microSD card slot for storage expansion. However, several trade-offs have been made in order to allow these features to be available. First of all, its battery has a capacity of 2610mAh versus the 3000mAh cell found inside the US-bound LG G2. In addition, the LG G2 sold in Korea will be thicker, albeit only by a quarter of a millimeter.
Long story short, users of the international LG G2 will have no microSD card slot at their disposal, but in exchange will get a battery that's 15% larger. Now feel free to check out an unboxing video showing the Korean LG G2 handset.
