Rumors have been doing their rounds on the web that LG is expected to go forth with the launch of a smartphone of its own some time next week. We reported that an NYC event is expected on September 19th. And now, LG has confirmed the date and the event by rolling out official invites.

We have already seen a whole plethora of smartphone launches this month. Nokia came up with the Lumia delights, Motorola had RAZR smartphones up its sleeve, HTC also pooled in with its share whereas Apple unveiled the much-anticipated iPhone 5. But the month’s launches seem far from over.

While LG hasn’t divulged a lot many details about the event, it does tell us that it is going to launch a smartphone. Since the company recently teased us with an Optimus G ad, we are quite optimistic that Optimus G is indeed going to be the highlight of this event. The smartphone packs a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip together with a 13-megapixel camera and LTE connectivity.

The event is titled ‘Live without boundaries’ and the official invite states, “LG and Qualcomm cordially invite you Live Without Boundaries. This exclusive event takes place on September 19 at [Redacted], where you will receive a first-hand look at an upcoming LG smartphone. LG and Qualcomm executives will be on hand to show off the device and discuss how this partnership is taking both companies to new heights.”
