We know that LG is going to announce its next flagship device – rumored to be called the LG G2 – at an August 7th event in New York City, but there’s still time for some additional leaks. Engadget has scored the clearest pictures of the G2 yet from a source, and as if that wasn’t enough, the phone was also briefly demoed on YouTube.
The newest pictures mainly lend weight to previous leaks, showing an almost edge-to-edge display that’s said to be 5.2-inches in size with a 1080p resolution. Other specs are said to include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera. The photos also confirm that LG will be moving the volume controls to the back of the phone, now located just below the camera module.
There’s also a great look at the device in a YouTube video posted by “4Leakz”, who describes the phone as “very comfortable in the hand” while being “reminiscent of the Nexus 4”. The YouTube user describes it as “even thinner” than the Nexus 4, however, most likely because of the larger surface area of the phone in addition to the repositioned volume rocker.
Otherwise, we know that the phone is running Android 4.2.2 along with LG’s user interface customisations. Engadget says that the phone is destined for US carrier Sprint, although we imagine that it will make a global debut as well. We’ll find out exactly what LG has in store on August 7th, as the company has strongly hinted that the handset will be officially announced then.
