LG hasn’t revealed much about the Optimus G successor, but it has said that it will feature a Snapdragon 800 processor. The design, on the other hand, has remained a mystery. Notorious leakster @evleaks on Twitter, however, has now posted images of what appears to be the LG Optimus G2. The images show a series of slides about the device, but interestingly, the slides simply call it the LG G2, not the Optimus G2. This does fall in line with rumors we heard earlier this year about LG wanting to drop the Optimus branding from its high-end devices. 

The images don’t tell us much about the inside of the device, but do reveal the design. The device looks rather thin and has an LG logo underneath the display. Most importantly, however, the G2 looks to have buttons on the back of the device. Between the camera and flash are two capacitive buttons that appear to be for volume control. We can’t tell if there is still a volume rocker on the side of the phone, however.

LG has a press event scheduled for August 7th, where we expect to hear about the Optimus G2 in detail.
