Later today we will get to see the LG G2 flagship smartphone in flesh, but in the meantime we get to look at what it seems to be press photo of the terminal. The infamous @evleaks Twitter account is responsible for releasing the LG G2 press photo in the wild, confirming that the volume rocker will be placed on the back.
For some reason, the design of the LG G2 back cover reminds me of the freshly launched Moto X. As I was mentioning above, the South Korea-based phone maker has placed the volume rocker on the back of the LG G2, probably in order to make it as thin as possible. The leaked photo also reveals that what we already knew: that the LG G2 will have an edge-to-edge display, with a very slim bezel around it.
As far as the photo allows as to see, the LG G2 case seems manufactured from plastic, therefore the flagship smartphone might come with a removable battery.
The rumor mill speculates that the LG G2 will sport a 5.2-inch full HD display with IPS Plus LCD technology, while being underpinned by Qualcomm’s mighty Snapdragon 800 chipset based on a quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400 GPU and an Adreno 330 GPU.
Even though the early rumors were suggesting that the LG G2 will be world’s first smartphone to come with 3 GB of RAM, it seems that the flagship handset manufactured by the Asian company will only come with 2 GB of RAM, after all. The camera unit will probably be borrowed from the Optimus G Pro, a phablet introduced by LG in February, at Mobile World Congress 2013.
Sources say that LG G2 will leave the factory gates pre-loaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with a new proprietary LG user interface applied on top of it.
The LG G2 has created a lot of buzz on the tech publications as the smartphone’s hardware platform is expected to be used to underpin the next-gen Nexus smartphone. According to reports the Nexus 5 will be officially announced by Google and LG this October, being the fist smartphone in the world to run Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie out of the box.
What are your predictions for the LG G2? Will it be able to put some heavy pressure on the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, or Moto X?
