Another leaked LG Optimus G2 photo appears, confirming the general shape
Last we heard about the upcoming Optimus G2 flagship by LG it was prepped for launch in Q3, and since that begins the count in just a month, pictures of the device itself started to leak, or at least the claimed corner of it you see on the right.

LG is pulling all the stops with this device, and we are expecting a Full HD display, which might feature a plastic unbreakable substrate, fast Snapdragon 800 processor and some touch areas on the back that would serve for navigation, while the bezel is reduced and the screen-to-phone-size ratio should be maximized too. 

Another leaked LG Optimus G2 photo appears, confirming the general shape
In the picture, however, the bezel story doesn't seem to be the case, though this might be just an engineering prototype of sorts, if it's the real deal in the first place. 

It, however, resembles very much the photo that leaked in the beginning of the month, which you can see on the left. 

That one doesn't have any buttons in the front either, and no side keys are visible, so there might be some merit to the backside navigation, or, alternatively, the Optimus G2, or whatever it gets named, might simply feature onscreen buttons.

That's the image that was leaked last month, the one on the right side is 100% legit. I can't say for 100% it is the Optimus G2, but considering it's referring to G2-SW-Stability@lge.com there shouldn't be much doubt.

Mmmmm thin bezel...grrrrrrr but honestly I heard this would have a eight core rival to the exynos 5....I can't wait....maybe gonna be my next phone!?

The Snapdragon 800 will leave the Exynos 5 in dust. Just Google LG D801 benchmark.

Snapdragon 800 up to 2.3 GHz

Exynos 5 Octa up to 1.8 GHz

But but need to remember that CPU performance is not only about frequency.

and also it maybe use LG's Own 8-core (big.LITTLE) Odin, base on new arm cpu A53 and A57

LG Becomes Lead Partner for ARM Cortex-A50 and Next-Generation Mali GPUs.
LG Develops Application Processors Based on ARMv8 64-Bit Technology
[05/28/2013 08:46 PM]
by Anton Shilov
ARM announced that LG Electronics has licensed the next generation of ARM Cortex-A50 series of central processing unit (CPU) solutions and the next generation of ARM Mali graphics processing units (GPUs). This agreement means that LG Electronics will have access to ARM’s highest-performing CPU and GPU solutions to create market-leading system-on-chips.
This agreement builds on an already strong relationship between LG Electronics and ARM, as LG Electronics has previously used both Cortex processors and Mali GPUs in its system-on-chips. This new agreement will enable LG Electronics to offer a wider range of high-performance SoCs powered by ARM Cortex-A50. The next generation of the Mali GPUs licensed by LG Electronics will extend the performance capabilities beyond that offered by the Mali-T678 GPU, taking graphics and GPU computing to new levels.
“The close interaction between the CPU and GPU becomes increasingly important as solutions transition between the 32-bit and 64-bit world. Being able to implement full Profile GPU Compute in conjunction with ARM Big.Little processing configurations will be a key driver to the overall performance and capabilities of our devices,” said Bo-ik Sohn, senior vice president of LG Electronics.

ARM Cortex-A50 processor series is fully compatible with ARMv8 architecture introduced this year and currently includes Cortex-A57 and A53 cores. The family features AMBA system coherency to extend to many-core coherence with ARM CoreLink cache coherent fabric components, including the CCI-400 and CCN-504. The new cores are also compatible with ARM Mali graphics processor family for GPU compute applications as well as ARM’s cryptographic acceleration. ARMv8 architecture is fully compatible with programs designed for ARMv7, which will simplify transition to 64-bit computing in the ARM world.
ARM Cortex-A57 processor core is the most advanced, highest single-thread performance ARM application processor that delivers the three times higher performance than today’s leading-edge mobile SoC with the same power consumption. The Cortex-A57 also sports extended reliability and scalability features for high-performance enterprise applications.

ARM Cortex-A53 processor core is the most efficient ARM application processor ever, delivering today’s superphone performance while using a quarter of the power, thus enabling low-cost advanced smartphones of tomorrow. The core also incorporates reliability features that enable scalable dataplane applications to maximize performance per mm2 and performance per mW. The Cortex-A53 is optimized for throughput processing for modest per thread compute applications.

haha~ even i am lg fan, ya , almost everybody copy each other,, just like this

lg make LG prada, then apple follow and make Iphone which in rectangular and rounded shape

samsung make big.LITTLE, other follow , just simple thing

It won't. It will be the Snapdragon 800.

If they launch globally this phone LG will have success, not like S4 but this may become a good rival.

If note3 will borrow gs4's design and still plastic,
This lg g2 is another twin story..
Handsets with thin bezel, plastic structure and curve corners are now getting too similar between galaxies and optimus..
LG pls retain the beautiful prada/optimus G design language, it is not advantageous for your image following samsung's design 2.0
Hoping design 3.0 to come this year with the note3

Now LG's gonna give tough competition to Sony's Togari, HTC's T6 and Samsung's Note III. Battlefield for Phablets. Beware other OEMs.

The fist Optimus G looks better (in my opinion).
