Leaked video and images show LG G2 with thin design, rear volume controls

While LG is not officially set to unveil its G2 flagship until August 7th, Engadget has just gotten its hands on clear, detailed images of the device, as well as a video that basically take all the suspense out of LG’s official event next month. According to the leak, the device will feature a 5.2-inch 1080p display with an incredibly small bezel that makes it appear edge-to-edge. Visually the G2 looks a lot more like the Nexus 4 than the original Optimus G. It has a more rounded design, as opposed to the blocky design on its predecessor. On the back is the volume rocker, which we saw in leaked images last month.

LG stated in June that the G2 will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which remains true here. The chip is supposedly clocked at 2.3GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM. The rear facing camera is 13MP and right above the odd volume controls.

The video below shows the device in great detail. It looks to be running Android 4.2.2 with a pretty heavy LG skin, though it does feature on screen buttons. It’s very thin, and according to the source, thinner than the Nexus 4 and “very comfortable” to use.
