Sprint to launch LG G2 in time for the holidays; pre-orders start October 11th
Sprint has announced on Monday, that the carrier will start taking pre-orders of the eagerly awaited LG G2 on October 11th. The highly spec'd model with the unique design will be available for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Those who pre-order online from Sprint will receive a free Quick Window case with their phone, valued at $49.99. There's a freebie that is actually functional.

The LG G2 will be the first smartphone in the U.S. to launch with the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor behind the wheel, and also has the volume rocker and power buttons on the back of the handset for a different look. The unit is also equipped with 24-bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback which reproduces sound in studio-like quality. And the 13MP rear-facing camera provides 1080 x 1920 video capture with Optical Image Stabilization. OIS allows you to take videos that look as though they were taken using a tripod even if your hands are shaking from caffeine withdrawal.

Sprint did not reveal an exact launch date, but did confirm that the device will be available in time for the holidays. Other mobile operators will have the device earlier. There is speculation that the phone will be in T-Mobile stores as early as today. Verizon should be offering the phone on September 12th while AT&T will have it a day later.
