LG revealed during its LG G2 announcement that the phone packs a 3000mAh battery and has been redesigned to take advantage of the available space inside the handset.

In order to accommodate the rear buttons on the LG G2 without increasing the thickness of the device and without impacting battery life – as those buttons take up space that could otherwise be used by the battery – the company has redesigned the battery of its new flagship smartphone.

The “step design” of the battery (seen in the image above) shows how the LG G2’s battery takes advantage of more space inside the handset than other batteries.

Furthermore, the battery density has also been increased in order to improve battery life, according to the company. Also worth mentioning is that the phone’s display is expected to utilize less battery power, thanks to its Graphic RAM feature.

Since the LG G2 is bigger in size than its predecessor, its battery is also bigger, at 3000mAh compared to 2100mAh for the LG Optimus G. However, the company did not mention how much time of use the LG G2’s battery will offer, only saying that the “LG G2 is more than ready for a full day’s work or play.”

It’s also not clear whether the battery will be user-replaceable, but we’d say it isn’t considering that its predecessor did not have such a battery either.
