The folks from LG have been busy sending out multiple press invites for the same event. That being their August 7th unveiling of the first smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series quad-core processor. The upcoming LG G2 is quite the impressive looking handset, and their latest press invite going out today confirms leaks regarding backside touch controls.

The LG G2 is shaping up to be one of the best smartphones of 2013, although we're still debating exactly what all the specs will be. Multiple leaks and reports have confirmed there won't be a volume up/down button on the side of this ultra-sleek phone, and instead LG will toss them on the back. As well as some other touch sensor.

Today LG sent out a teaser video that was a bit creepy, and in the end it promises the G2 will learn from the user, then they flash a look at the handset with the backside buttons. However, the image above was just sent out by LG themselves, confirming this new feature yet again.

We've seen reports and even a few blurry leaked photos showing us the back, but this is the first time LG themselves have officially acknowledges the feature. The rumors have the new LG G2 coming in with a 5.2-inch edge-to-edge 1920 x 1080p full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (or 4.3) backside touch controls all inside a super thin smartphone.

This will be the first "G" branded device, which is the name for their new premium device lineup. With impressive specs across the board, a unique never seen before backside touch button layout, and a 2,450 mAh battery this phone sounds pretty nice about now. It will hit AT&T for sure, and possibly others. Stay tuned as we'll be live from the August 7th event with all the details.
