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, 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?
