LG G2 rumored to launch in Korea on August 20th; LG Nexus 5 is coming?
A published report on Wednesday out of Korea passed along some important information on the LG G2, including a launch date for the device. The report also claims to have information about an LG Nexus 5. But first things first, let's discuss the launch date for the LG G2. While earlier reports had the phone coming to market in Korea before the August 7th event that is supposed to unveil the device, Wednesday's report confirms the August 7th introduction of the model which will be followed by an August 20th launch in Korea. Yes, this makes a lot more sense than believing that it would launch in Korea first and then be followed by an unveiling.

The LG G2 will be equipped with a 5.2 inch 1080 x 1920 display and will use the Zero Gap technology for a zero bezel. A quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is under the hood. While 2GB of RAM is currently listed for the LG G2, the Korean manufacturer is said to be still considering swapping to 3GB. A 13MP ISO camera is on back and the word is that images are greatly improved. The removable 2700mAh battery keeps the lights on. A dual speaker will provide stereo sound and Android 4.2.2. is installed out of the box. There will be no front or side buttons and we have seen pictures of the volume rocker just above the camera on the back of the unit. The LG G2 will support the next generation of LTE called LTE-A which means the phone will run at speeds as high as 150Mbps.

We already pointed out the similarities in specs between the rumored LG Megalodon from back in March, and the LG G2. The rumor at the time was that the LG Megalodon would be the Nexus 5. Well, the same report out of Korea on Wednesday said that there will be an LG Nexus 5 launched in October based on the LG G2. The kicker here is that it will run Android 5.0, or Key Lime Pie. Back in March, the LG Megalodon was said to have a 5.2 inch screen, be powered by a quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, include 3GB of RAM and offer a 2.1 front-facing camera. That is pretty close to the expected specs for the LG G2, which is what the LG Nexus 5 will be based on according to the speculation. It is amazing how all of these rumors seem to tie together.
