Yesterday, LG announced the launch of two exclusive coloured versions of its G2 handset, however for now, they’re exclusive to the Korean market. Available now in gold and red, the launch comes just a short while after the gold variant was spotted in the wild in Taiwan.

LG has released these two colours to celebrate the occasion of the Lunar New Year, which is around two weeks away. Besides the colours, these two G2s are precisely the same inside as every other G2, except that the back cover is coloured and also textured, meaning the ugly fingerprints left on the back plate of the standard G2 are a thing of the past with these two.

It’s unknown whether these colour options will become available outside of Asia, but at least for now they’re available in Korea, Singapore and seemingly Taiwan. It seems plausible that they’ll come to other areas in the APAC region, but as with most things, if LG wants to sell them, they’d need to move them along soon before the market moves and leaves the G2 behind.

He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

I like the gold finish one.
Would love to see that finish on the Sony Z1 compact.
