LG G2 slims down for matchup vs Note 2

    LG Optimus G2 leak

    No, the picture above is not from the leak in question, but it’s there because, well, we have to apologize in advance: these pictures are pretty ugly. But in yet another leak for a phone that’s nearly been leaked to death, it looks like things are shrinking all over. In what is purportedly a photo of the LG G2 next to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, it looks like the G2′s bezel is at least half as thin.

    While that is undeniably cool, not everything included in this newest leak looks like reason to celebrate. Fans of super-huge batteries will be dissapointed with the 2,540 mAh battery shown in the pics, though given what we’ve seen with Snapdragon chipsets and power consumption, we’d hold judgement on battery life for now.

    While we’re still crossing our fingers for 3 GB RAM, another leaked pic featuring memory usage may point to it being 2 GB. It’s hard to tell from just simply seeing an (ugly) image, though, so who knows? It’s entirely possible that the device is either not running many apps, or is just extremely memory efficient.

    One thing is for sure: we’re not going to have to wait that long to find out. We’ll be there at the LG G2 event in New York on August 7 to bring you a first hand look at the real-deal G2, and we’ve got a feeling that it’s going to be making a pretty big splash.

    What do you think of this newest leak? Is this what we’re going to see in the LG G2 when it’s made official?

      I’ll be at the store day of release to inspect. Right now this and nexus 5 are at the top of my list

      Hopefully a prototype, I was hoping for a bit larger battery.

        The battery will be removable though right? I mean the SGS4 has good battery life at it has a 2600mah bartery. I too would like to see a Note sized battery in this thing though.

        • Marsg

          Yeah but the s4 also has a Amoled display which saves battery due to the blacks being non working pixels and Amoled isn’t backlit like LCDs, not to mention the S800 is also working at a much higher frequency thanthe S600. Off course the display isn’t going to make a huge difference in battery life, like maybe a 4-5%. The thing that has me worried is the SoC. To throw it up there it also has 60 less mAh

      built in wireless charging (according to translated source page)

      I hope that the battery isn’t final. As everyone’s saying, Nexus 5 will be based on G2 and I’ll be buying that

      • Cal Rankin

        I really hope not. Don’t get me wrong, I like LG phones, but I would much rather see one made by HTC. They need it more than LG, especially since they can now crank out great hardware, and vanilla Android would be icing on the cake.

        • MasterMuffin

          HTC needs it more, but G2 is just AWESOME so it kinda deserves it

          • Cal Rankin

            I can agree. I would LOVE a Nexus this thin, but HTC has proven they can crank out the hardware and give it the edge against a G2-based Nexus. I still think the perfect size for a phone is at 4.7″, and if this is getting into Galaxy Note territory, it’s turning off people from buying it. That’s why I think the HTC One is the perfect phone: aluminum body, BoomSound speakers, Beats Audio, iPhone-beating battery life, plus the rolling-out Android 4.2.2.

            • MasterMuffin

              Well obviously our pregerences differ :)

            • Cal Rankin

              guess so.

    • Garo.j

      You can always purchase a larger battery threw a third party vendor’s. The G2 is going to give the notes2 a run the money.

      • Jaun Lombard

        I will hope so otherwise the G2, which is a new phone, will be sh!t compared to a phone that is almost a year old!

    • Drizzle

      I’m so excited for this phone. And… DEM BEZELS. Bejeezus that is crazy thin.

    • Vince

      On the first pics, it’s the LG-D803 from leak video (unknown carrier) and on the last leak it’s the Korean version with LG U+ , the LG-F320L. That could have some differences between versions. Remember that it’s also some prototype, maybe with included some intermediate part from previous hardware.

    • Jaun Lombard

      Why no button at the bottom of the G2…now there will be icons using up the home screen….they can remove the LG sign and replace it with a button!
