It seems that no matter how hard a company tries, there is never going to be an end to the leak culture. It’s just unstoppable, especially when you think of how huge these launches are in profile – there are hundreds, if not thousands, of people that will get their hands on this device before it launches. Like LG’s Nexus 4, the Optimus G2 is beginning to look like a poorly kept secret of LG’s. We’ve seen photos of it before, and we’re sure that we’ll see photos of it again before it launches.
In the above photo from Techtastic, we get a quick glimpse of what the device looks like from the side. With so little detail available in the image, it’s hard to think too much about the device’s design, aside from the fact that we can make a port or two at the bottom of the device. With a rumored screen size of 5.2-inches, this image seems to back that up, as it certainly looks longer than it does wider – a characteristic sign of a larger smartphone.
Of course, we only have a few weeks left to wait, as LG are holding an event in NYC next month, before we see the rest of the device on show and finally get to see what’s inside LG’s next flagship. Rumored specs so far include a Snapdragon 800, Full HD display and the ability to record in “Ultra HD”. Whatever the Optimus G2 ends up being, LG won’t be releasing a poor device in the giant looming shadow that is the Galaxy S4.
Hopefully, with the release of the G2 in August, the Fall should be an exciting time for new Android devices (with the Moto X on its way, too). Are you waiting for the Optimus G2 or are you more than happy with what you have at the moment? Let us know in the comments below.
