A mystery LG smartphone has popped up online with no significant specifications about the device. Posted by our friend blog evleaks, the phone might be the company’s Optimus G2 smartphone, or an upcoming successor to Optimus LTE 2.
The phone represents a paradigm change in its design process for the Korean manufacturer as we have not seen something like this from the company in a long time. There are a few glimpses of Nexus 4 like design but that is all which looks familiar.
There are no front capacitive or physical buttons on-board, indicating that the company is going to use virtual buttons. The leaked benchmarklisting of Optimus G2 also showed the presence of virtual buttons – suggesting that this leaked image can turn out to be of Optimus G2. However, we will wait for more concrete information before coming to a conclusion.
Evleaks also uploaded a close-up shot of the top bezel showing front camera and a little of that weird looking ear-piece.
The display will be more than 5-inches, but given the fact that part of screen real estate will be used for virtual buttons, the final usable display space will most likely be close to 5-inches only.
We expect to see more such leaks in the coming days to get more information about the phone.Lets hope this phone makes leaps LG ahead in the smartphone war.
