LG G2 manual screenshot
By now, we’re sure that the upcoming LG G2 is already on your radar — what with that impressive AnTuTu benchmark score and the fact that it will come pre-loaded with “celestial voices” — so today we’re bringing you some bits of news that you might find interesting.

In earlier reports, we’ve already mentioned the LG G2′s rather unorthodox placement of certain hardware buttons at the back. While it isn’t likely to present users with much of a learning curve, well, it’s still something quite unusual. Now, thanks to a leaked screenshot of the LG G2′s user manual, we can finally see where exactly in the back the hardware buttons will be. The leak comes to us by way of the guys from NowhereElse.fr, who do have a track record of getting things right.

The leaked page from the manual not only makes it clear where certain hardware and even software buttons will be on the LG G2, it also dispels rumors that a fingerprint sensor will be present among the buttons at the back. Apparently, the button that will be sitting in between the up and down volume buttons is nothing more than the power/lock button. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Also, the LG G2 will require the use of a nano-SIM card, just like the recently announced Moto X. We won’t be surprised if even more phones end up using this type of SIM card in the future.

We’ve learned pretty much everything there is to learn already about the LG G2 by now, and no doubt a lot of people are already excited for its release. And it shouldn’t take long now. The question is, are you ready for it?

    Okay…seems we all we right that the G2 will look like an S4…

    • Ian Dimare

      Does S4 have software buttons?

      Does S4 have volume and power buttons on the back?

      Does S4 have only logo on the front, under the screen?

        But wait…the phone is plastic…AND WE ALL KNOW PEOPLE HATE PLASTIC on a phone, thus I can’t wait till people tear this phone apart because of it. With the shape of the phone resembling the S4…put a button on that LG logo and you have a S4 look-a-like from the front!!

        • G2forme

          Does S4 have 2.2mm WORLD’S Slimmest TRUE HD IPS display?
          Does S4 have 2.3mm BEZEL?
          Does S4 have Dual speakers on the bottom ?
          Does S4 use ZERO GAP ALL BLACKS in front (off screen)?
          Does S4 have 5.2″ screen?
          Does S4 have ON-SCREEN ?

          ONE LAST QUESTION?
          SERIOUSLY ARE YOU BLIND??? lol

          • Jaun Lombard

            Dude I can see all the small differences you mentioned…but the overall look is still S3, S4 look-a-like! i know there is improvements in the G2, but put a button on that Lg logo and you have a S4.

            Plus that back cover is very shiny!! Looks like plastic…even if it isn’t plastic it still looks cheap!

            Besides…I will buy that G2 in a heartbeat!!! its an awesome phone!!!

          • G2forme

            lol

            G2′s design is similar to LG nexus 4, and LG LTE /Spectrum 2.

            it has crystal reflections on the back! like the one on the back Optimus g!

        • G2forme

          G2 has better and premium design over S4.
          G2′ used not just a plastic … but also a metal and premium glass and other good materials.

          • Ian Dimare

            Yes, material is so much better than Samsung’s. I have 4X HD and going to buy a N4.

        • Jaun Asshole

          Looks like a Nexus 4 made by LG — which came 5 months before the S4.

      • blckaapl

        The bottom looks like a 3GS!

    • G2forme

      Does S4 have 2.2mm WORLD’S Slimmest TRUE HD IPS display?
      Does S4 have 2.3mm BEZEL?
      Does S4 have Dual speakers on the bottom
      ?
      Does S4 use ZERO GAP ALL BLACKS in front (off screen)?
      Does S4 have 5.2″ screen?
