LG G2 press images leaked ahead of launch

Photos confirm several rumoured features ahead of official unveiling later today

The press shots of the LG G2 have leaked hours ahead of its official unveiling.

LG is set to officially show off the much-leaked smartphone at an event in New York later today.

However, ahead of the event, famed leaker EvLeaks has posted one of the official press images of the smartphone on Twitter.

Leaks in recent months have suggested that the LG G2 will feature a 5.2-inch, 1080p display and a relatively small bevel.

The leaked images appear to confirm that is the case.

Earlier this month, the company hinted at what the phone looks like, showing off its smart cover.

The leaked press images also reveal that the volume rocker is on the back of the phone, underneath the camera lens.

Other facts revealed in the leaked press shots are that it is made of plastic, it features a speaker grille on the front, along with a front facing camera and three capacitive touch buttons.

Unlike the Pro model in the phone’s first generation, there is no actual button that can be pressed.

As for inside the device, we will have to wait till later on in the day.

The only thing confirmed is that the smartphone will feature Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor. It is likely that the LG G2 will be the first smartphone on the market to feature the new processor.

The phone’s manual was leaked earlier this week. In it, it was confirmed that the device would feature a rear-volume rocker, a 13 megapixel camera and a rear flash.

The manual also revealed that the phone will measure 138.5mm x 70.9mm x 8.9mm and weigh 143g.

It also confirmed that it would be one of the few phones on the market featuring the relatively new nanoSIM format. The only other devices on the market that currently use the smaller SIM card format are the iPhone 5, iPad mini, Asus PadFone Infinity and the Motorola Moto X.

The LG G2 is due to be officially unveiled at an event later today in New York at 4PM UK time.
