Mystery LG handset leaks, could be the LG Optimus G2
This mystery LG handset apparently is buttonless, at least in front

This mystery LG handset apparently is buttonless, at least in front

Evleaks has posted a picture of a mystery LG handset that apparently doesn't have any buttons. The serial leaker makes a guess that this is the LG Optimus G2, a handset that is expected to be launched next quarter. Actually, this seems to be a good guess because a recent rumor had the power and volume controls for the LG Optimus G2 on the back of the phone. The same rumor has the phone powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and having a thin footprint.

The leaked photo shows off a curved glass, thin bezel and a reflective earpiece. For those who were thinking that this could possibly be the rumored LG Nexus 5, you won't find a shred of Nexus branding anywhere on the picture. For the moment, we might go with evleaks' guess unless we can come up with something better.

LG impressed me with the Nexus 4. If this turns out to be the Optimus G 2 and then the Nexus 5 spins off of that device... I say bring it LG.

What do you mean? LG smartphones have gorgeous designs! For example, the Optimus G, Optimus G Pro, Google Nexus 4 etc.

To be honest, Samsung is the only Manufacturer that doesn't make good looking phones. LG, Sony, HTC, Motorola and Asus makes awesome looking phones.

Can someone clarify the "curved glass" statement. We talking curved around the bezel, or Nexus S type curve?

Probably around the bezel based on the picture and the way the Nexus 4 was.

I said a little bit only, what's wrong with it? Who can prove that there is nothing similar?
PhoneArena is now not a place for making opinion.
Sorry to say about this, but there are soo many brain-wasted haters.

Samsung CAN make awesome looking phones. Unfortunately, they usually save those designs for their non-android phones such as the Wave series devices. Those phone were sexy.

You know if this does turn out to be the Nexus 5, I wouldn't mind at all. Now if it were... I do find it odd that the LG branding is on the face of the phone... I know you people of the internet will correct me, but no recent Nexus (that I can think of) has had the maker's branding on the front.The branding is usually on the back as it was on the last two Nexi(?). Now if this were the Optimus G2, it's interesting that they'll go with the Google-standard on-screen buttons. Either way the device itself looks great but then again it could be just a prototype.

I know it is your opinion, but there's nothing wrong with the placement of the LG logo, it is very sexy, I love it!

Just like the HTC One, the placement of the logo is also at the bottom face of the phone, oh and don't forget about the BlackBerry Z10!

The Optimus G2 defining features are eye scrolling which are slightly more advanced than the GS4, meaning the phone's cameras will know when your eyes stop at a point on the page and the pinch to zoom feature which can also be done with the eyes wide open too, though you will look really weird doing it. This is supposed to be the phone with software which LG described as being partially self aware of it's surroundings, remember they did point out a phone with google now like senses coming out this year and this looks to be it.

Looks great on the outside but we all know the BIGGEST PROBLEM with LG is optimization of software as well as plain updates to handsets. Lg is putting on a great face luring people into it's crusty trap with the battery draining Optimus G and the battery draining Nexus 4. Now they have the overheating Lg Optimus Gpro that wanna be Galaxy Note 2 fake. Lg isn't going anywhere to soon that's for sure..
