LG G2 5.2" display assembly waves hello, indicates shorter body with minimum bezel

LG G2 5.2
Tomorrow is a grand day in LG's camp, as its long-rumored flagship for the year, the G2, will be making an official appearance on the stage in New York, and we'll be there to relay the festivities, and take it for a spin.

So far we've heard the no-brainer parts for a second half flagship - quad-core Snapdragon 800, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP camera on the back, and a sweet 5.2" display with 1080p Full HD resolution. That same one-glass 5.2" panel has leaked on a parts trading website, and the shape of the front assembly completely confirms the leaked photos and videos of the device so far. 

We've got rounded corners, and very, very thin top and bottom, as well as side bezel, indicating that the phone might be shorter than what we would expect from a 5.2-incher, though it doesn't necessarily seem to be more narrow than usual, despite the lack of side buttons. What we don't know yet are the exact dimensions, as well as how will those power/lock key and volume buttons on the back feel like in everyday usage, but we'll report on that in a day.

But you do know the exact dimensions. The product manual leaked yesterday.

138.5 mm tall by 70.9 mm wide by 8.9 mm and with a weight of 143 grams.

If the leaks are right, this is a very smart move to have a very slim bezel. It's too bad HTC did not opt for this with the One. The bezel on that thing is pretty big, especially when compared to the Moto X and S4.

I still don't know why people are saying this. It looks more like Moto X's brother. Minimal bezel and on-screen buttons. That, and you don't see thirty sensors peppered on the front.

Both the G2 and Moto X look to draw inspiration from the Nexus 4 design.

If it really is bezeless than this thing is HUGE. 70.9mm is fat for having no bezels so it must have a 4:3 type aspect ratio or something and the screen might be short but wide.

I thought the Nexus 4 was a little too wide compared to the Gnex because the 48 pixels (768 - 720 = 48) went into the waist and the on screen buttons subtracted from the height. This one seems like they made the same mistake but worse.

Optimus Vu mini anyone?

You're crazy, it is almost the same dimensions as the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Looks great, I'm all for removing capacitive buttons in exchange for the on screen buttons, it makes the device look so good, hopefully more and more manufacturers will start doing this for 2014.

Anxious to hear your input but particularly intersted in finding out if the phone call clarity is equal to Samsung Galaxy and HTC One.

I'm pretty excited for this phone. In general I love LG phones and tend to favor their UI... I know most don't but personally I love it.

I thought it would put 3gb ram on board.

LG tend to use elements of their old flagship devices in their newer models, that's obviously where the Nexus 4 input came from (which LG designed)
