The LG (Optimus) G2 is expected to be one of the most interesting smartphones to see the light of day in 2013, a handset that will reportedly have the volume rocker placed on the back. Anyway, today we get to see new leaked photos of the terminal, which come to confirm the odd placement of the Volume Up/Down buttons.
Unfortunately the LG G2 leaked photos are a bit blurred, but they are still able to reveal an almost edge-to-edge display. The guys at GSMArena were among the first to report about the leaked LG G2 photos, after they were found on @leakschina Twitter account, claiming that the terminal will have a 5-inch display and the volume rocker placed on the back, confirming the rumors that made the headlines over the past couple of months.
The ones who already got their hands on the LG G2 said that the volume buttons are not in handy, but maybe we are looking at a prototype and things will be different with the final product. It seems that LG chose to place the volume buttons on the back in order to be able to narrow the bezel and reduce its profile. Sources say that the LG G2 will include a removable 2,600 mAh battery, which is great news for those of you who are always on the move.
LG recently announced that the G2 flagship will be officially introduced on August 7th.
Summing up, the recently leaked photos of the LG G2 have confirmed most of the previous rumors: the primary camera sensor has a special design, and the Volume Up/Down buttons are placed below the LED flash. The case seems to be made of plastic, which is a very common material among the South Korean phone makers.
Just in case you are wondering what the rumor mill has to say about the LG G2 specs, learn that the smartphone is expected to come with a 5-inch full HD display which will most likely use an IPS LCD panel, just like the one that was fitted on the Optimus G Pro. The thin case of the LG G2 might hide a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset with quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 CPU, Adreno 320 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM.
The camera sensor mounted on the back of the smartphone will most likely pack a 13 megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization. Now that we are less than a month away from the LG G2 release date, the leaks regarding the next-gen LG flagship should start to intensify.
