The LG G2 will go on sale through Optus in Australia from next week, it was announced today.
The company's flagship smartphone for 2013 will be sold from Monday, 4 November through Optus retail stores and online.
Optus will sell the LG G2 on a number of plans, including the hero offer of a $2 handset repayment on its $60 plan over 24 months, a total of $62 per month.
The plan includes 600 minutes voice calls, unlimited SMS and MMS messages and 1GB data.
LG Australia's Head of Mobile Communications, Jonathan Banks, claims the LG G2 is one of the "most highly-anticipated" smartphones of the year.
"This is one of the most highly-anticipated smartphones of the year, and we are proud to announce its arrival with Optus and our key retail partners in Australia," he said in a media statement.
"The partnership with Optus involved R&D collaboration to enable the G2 to support the new Optus 4G Plus network. This combined with innovative hardware design makes G2 a very compelling proposition for Australian consumers."
The G2 is among the first smartphones to work on Optus' TDD-LTE (time-division duplex) and FDD-LTE (frequency-division duplex) 4G networks, marketed as its dual band, "4G Plus" network.
Optus 4G Plus is currently available in selected parts of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra and Adelaide, though the telco promises it will reach 70 per cent of the metro population by mid-2014.
In addition to Optus, the G2 will also be sold outright through a number of Australian retail stores including Allphones, Dick Smith, Harvey Norman and JB Hi Fi.
LG will sell two outright models of the G2 in Australia. A 16GB model will retail for $649, while a 32GB model will sell for $699.
LG says the first 10,000 customers who purchase the G2 in Australia will receive a bonus Quick Window flip cover.
