YET AGAIN pictures have leaked of the highly anticipated, upcoming LG G2, and in the photos, it’s being compared alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. Why they couldn’t find a Galaxy Note 3 and compare them alongside one another is beyond me (kidding), but this is still pretty cool. Check out all the leaked photos (the one above is not one of them) and all that we’ve found below after the break.
In a mobile world that has been dominated by Apple and Samsung, LG has been quietly making some noise. LG finally made a name for themselves last year with the Optimus G and the Nexus 4, but if you want to compete with the likes of Samsung, you better have something that competes with the Note as well. LG already tried this route with the Optimus Vu, which was a total flop. For whatever reason, they thought a 4:3 display would attract consumers, but all it did was detract them. After the success of the Optimus G, they won’t make that same mistake again. Using the “G” theme they designed a phone that has all the hardware and tools to go head to head with Samsung. Is it good enough? Hit the break to find out.
LG announced last night that they have successfully created the world’s thinnest full HD LCD for smartphones. The display is 5.2-inches and is only 2.2-mm thick. It’s also obviously a true full HD (1080 x 1920) with its RGB sub-pixels. Not only will it just look sharper, it will provide for better outdoor readability, an enhanced touch experience and better “grip-ability.”
It’s quite obvious at this point that the display will ship with the new LG G2 set for announcement in NYC on August 7. The phone is looking like it’s going to shape up to be an absolute beast at this point with both superior RAM as well as this sick display. Check out the full presser after the break.
If you own the AT&T LG Optimus G Pro, then you will be happy to know the Value Pack upgrade is finally available to you. It’s already available via over-the-air and includes a ton of new features and enhancements such as:
- Smart Video intelligently recognizes the position of a user’s eyes, automatically pausing the video when the user looks away and then restarting it once they resume active viewing.
- Dual Camera, an extension of the Dual Recording feature, lets users simultaneously capture photos of the subject and the shooter using both the front and back cameras for a picture-in-picture composition, so both sides of an experience are snapped and saved.
- Pause & Resume Recording allows user to pause video in record mode and then restart the recording to create one continuous video file.
Yes friends, it’s looking like the second half of 2013 is going to be a busy period for LG. In making no effort to hide its excitement for its upcoming G2 smartphone, reports out of Korea confirm that not only will LG will indeed launch the new flagship on August 7th (see— we told you so), but LG plans on following up with an August 20th launch of the smartphone in Korea. The new device will probably launch just ahead of Apple’s (iPhone 5S) and Samsung’s (Galaxy Note III) upcoming offerings.
Oh and that’s not all either— a special variant of the G2 will likely be on the way as well. If you recall, we casually mentioned something about a mysterious Megalodon smartphone earlier in the year which featured roughly the same specs as the G2 which includes, Android 5.0 (Key Lime Pie), a larger display (likely at 5.2-inches this time around), a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM among other things. Well the same report out of Korea confirms that LG is working on what looks to be the Nexus 5 smartphone— roughly based off the Megalodon smartphone. Oh and the wait wouldn’t be too bad either as it’s due for an October arrival.
So yes friends, feel free to go ahead and start salivating at LG plans on showcasing its newest flagships to the world.

In a week that seems to be full of leaked images, the latest batch to be discovered steps things up a notch as several images and even a video surface showing the forthcoming LG Optimus G2. The images show a device apparently heading to the Sprint network based on the information shown in the settings screen and not because of any logos on the exterior of the device.
As we get closer and closer…. and closer to the LG G2′s upcoming release, we are finally starting to get an idea of when the masses can finally expect the device to hit store shelves. In its latest teaser video, a fine gentleman is seen roaming through the various New York City boroughs, seeing various “To me, you are perfect. From G.” hints. As if that isn’t enough– the end of the teaser sees LG going ahead and confirming it will have an event in New York City on August 7th, indicating it would be “Great 2 Have You” and pretty much confirming what we already knew. It looks like it’s a pretty safe bet that LG has pretty much given up trying to keep its new toy a secret and is as giddy as we are about the new smartphone.
So there you have it friends, go ahead and mark your calendars for the August 7th unveiling of the G2 smartphone.
Leaked images of the LG G2 are coming in like they’re out of style. We’ve already showed you multiple pictures of almost every angle, but today we have a few more. Twitter account leakschina tweeted out a couple of images showing the front and back of the G2. Nothing we haven’t seen before, but reinforces the unique design with the volume buttons on the back.
After all of the leaked photos, I’m excited to see the real thing, which should be coming soon. Stay tuned.

A bit of irony for your Saturday night— in a recent customer satisfaction survey carried out by a Korean-language news site, Apple stood atop the standings with a 52% satisfaction rating. The Korea-based Samsung fell a bit short of their main competitor, with a 50% satisfaction rating. LG was able to manage a 46% rating. The poll surveyed over 44,000 smartphone owners, so its definitely a large sample size. The companies were also graded on a point scale, in which Apple managed 711 points, Samsung garnered 695 points, and LG was able to pick up 682 points.
Earlier today word came out that the LG Optimus G2 may be one of the first phones to hit the market with 3GB of RAM. More details about the device have surfaced, though the new information may just muddy the waters a bit. Previously it was believed the Optimus G2 would have a 5.5-inch screen. New information indicates the smartphone will only have a 5.2-inch screen, though it will run at 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution.
Besides the large HD screen, a new photo appears to confirm earlier reports that LG has moved various buttons, like the volume rockers, to the back of the device. This means the bezel and overall device size can be minimized despite the large screen. Reports also indicate LG is incorporating optical image stabilization into the 13MP camera so better video will result.
LG has an event scheduled for August 7th in New York City. We anticipate there will be more leaks about the Optimus G2 and other LG devices between now and then, when the official specifications should be revealed.
