LG G2 photos and video leak ahead of August 7 event

It is anticipated LG will be unveiling its Optimus G followup handset, called the G2, at an event on August 7. While there have been fairly ample leaks regarding the handset, there haven't been any decent shots of the device. That changed today, with the folks over at Engadget getting a mini gallery of image said to be the LG G2.

Most notably, this leak includes images of the back of the handset, confirming rumors that the smartphone would feature touch controls on the back rather than the typical volume rocker on the edge of the device. As far as design goes, it has a bit of flavors from the Nexus 4, Optimus G, and even the iPhone. This is most apparent in the video below, which shows the G2 in action.

The camera you see on the back, under which is the power and volume controls, is a 13-megapixel offering, while the display is said to be a 5.2-inch full HD panel at 1080p. This is smaller than the 5.5-inches of its predecessor, and is in line with other leaks we've heard regarding the handset. The speakers are located in a grille at the bottom of the device.

Inside, it is said users will find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.3GHz processor, as well as 2GB of RAM while running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. That is the extent of what we know for now, except that the unit featured is a Sprint variant, according to a screenshot that was sent to Engadget. The video purports slightly different specs, however.

According to 4Leakz, who uploaded the video to YouTube, the device measures in with a length of 5.46-inches and a width of 2.80-inches. Likewise, the device in the video shows it as featuring NFC connectivity, visible via the NFC icon located at the top. The model number for this handset is LG-D803.
