The day after LG sent out invites for the Optimus G2 unveiling, a massive leak gave us an up-close look at the device. The event is planned for August 7, but the device will launch in its home market a couple of weeks later on August 20 according to the new info.

The Optimus G2 will have a 5.2" IPS display with 1080p resolution and a razor thin bezel (which we saw in the photos). It will launch with Android 4.2.2 running on a Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 2GB of RAM (LG is reportedly considering moving up to 3GB). The chipset also enables 150Mbps LTE-Advanced 4G connectivity. A removable 2,700mAh battery will feed all this.

The camera is pegged at 13MP with unusual buttons right next to it, which will serve multiple functions. There are dual-speakers on the bottom.

The LG Optimus G2 is supposedly based on work LG is doing on the Nexus 5, but that will be announced only after the G2 October 5 says the rumor. The Nexus successor will reportedly bring Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie, though we've barely started seeing 4.2 Jelly Bean come out.

For your kind information, G2 comes with 3000mAH battery (not 2540).LG G2 is far better than S4.
