LG G2Fast-tracked release in Korea and a launch on the big four in the U.S., according to Korean press reports

We're gearing up for tomorrow's big LG G2 unveiling in New York City, but it seems the first country to see a retail release for the phone could be South Korea. According to reports from Korea's MK News, the device will launch in the Korean market this Thursday, Aug. 8, the day after the NYC launch event.

In the United States, the publication adds, the G2 will launch on all four major carriers — AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint — while Japan's NTT Docomo will also get the new LG flagship.

Fortunately we won't have to wait too long to learn whether these reports pan out, as we'll be live from NYC tomorrow to bring you full coverage of the LG G2 launch.
