LG teased us earlier with a new promo ad that boasted their Optimus G’s 13MP camera, and as much as we’d love to get our hands on the phone and try it for ourselves, a release date still remains a mystery but according to the folks at CNET, LG is expected to be hosting an event in NYC on the 19th of September, while another event will be held in South Korea on the 18th of September. While it is unclear as to what LG will be announcing, it has been speculated that the company could be announcing release dates for the LG Optimus G in the US. Given that the US market is one of the largest in the world to break into, and given the specs of the handset, we’re sure that not only is LG eager to offer it up to US customers, but US customers are probably just as eager to get their hands on it. If the Optimus G’s specs have impressed you, be sure to check back with us on the 19th of September for the details.
