One of the hottest Android phones being talked about is the LG G2, which was announced yesterday in New York City.  The device offers industry leading hardware coupled with an interesting design tweak that LG hopes can compete with the Galaxy S4, HTC One, the upcoming new iPhone, and the Moto X.

Today, Verizon Wireless confirmed through Twitter that it will, indeed, carry the LG G2 shortly enough.  For the sake of loyal VZW customers, I can only hope Big Red launches the LG G2 at the same time every other carrier launches the flagship device.  Please, Verizon, do not turn this into an HTC One situation.

Speaking of the HTC One, Verizon Wireless (and other carriers) will have a solid lineup of smartphones expected to hit the market in the next couple of months.  The latest rumors have pinned the Moto X to launch on August 23 in the United States, however, we still do not know pricing details for the Moto X on T-Mobile.  In addition, the new iPhone and G2 will soon launch across the world in the next couple of months.

Lastly, here is a quick recap of the LG G2 specs: 5.2 inch 1080p display, Snapdragon 800 processor (2.3GHz quad-core), 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear facing camera, and 16GB/32GB of on board storage.  At this point in time, we are still waiting to learn its exact pricing.
