LG Optimus G2 image leaks with edge-to-edge display

Last weekend we received our first glance at this mystery handset from the folks at LG, which many believe to be the LG Optimus G2, and today we're getting another up close view at what could even be the next Nexus smartphone. The popular Twitter account @evleaks has once again delivered and posted another photo of this unannounced device, and we're still left wondering what exactly LG has planned.

The smartphone was originally leaked last week in a full-body shot showing a super-thin bezel, no navigation buttons, and possibly being 5.5-inches. Which means just like the LG Nexus 4 and other Nexus devices it will be all on-screen navigation. This doesn't mean it will be the Nexus 5 but it sure has a Nexus look with the rounded edges, speaker grill, and front facing camera all in a similar layout.

The image today gives us another glance at the handset, but still doesn't reveal any details. You can see from all images that have been released that this has one of the thinnest bezels we've seen to date. That is an edge-to-edge display if we've ever seen one. Many believe, including @evleaks, that this is the LG Optimus G2, but we'll have to wait and see.

Last years popular LG Optimus G ended up being the base for Google's Nexus 4, and we could see the exact same thing this year too. While many don't believe Google has a new smartphone they'll unveil next week at Google I/O, you never know. We could be seeing an LG Nexus 5 with Android 4.3, or sometime this summer LG will simply announce the new LG Optimus G2 with a large 5.5-inch display, thin bezel and all.

What do you guys think?

    I don’t think the Optimus G2 will have a 5.5 inch display. That would completely cut into potential sales of their Optimus G Pro, which released today in the States. A similar display size to the original Optimus G is more likely, if this even is the G2.

      Yea I’m thinking right in the middle of the G and the Pro.. 5-inch

      • Vince

        I think so

  • craig dunston

    This was inevitable but if lg comes out with a edge to edge display it once again brings something new to the market. More power to them if it sees the light of day. Go LG!!!!!!!!!!!

    well, it’s probably the FIRST REAL edge-to-edge display.
    nice.

    it’s not really edge to edge, and doesn’t matter anyway because nobody should ever buy an LG phone again.

    • Bazzaq

      no one should really take your advice either

        I agree. LG makes some really bad arse phones, and I am loving the Optimus G so moving to the G2 is a no brainer!

    I can tell you that Sprint is carrying the bad boy. http://device.sprintpcs.com/LG/LS980-SPRINT/LS980Z02.rdf

    Also shows it to be a Snapdragon 800!! Oh yea this is my next phone as I love my Optimus G!!

    I could see this being the G2 with a 5″ display to compete with the DNA
    and GS4. Google could then theoretically use it and call it the Nexus 5, with the 5
    signifying the size of the screen and the fact that it would be the fifth Nexus. Seems logical to me. And we’ll see both this phone and the Nexus version on every major carrier except Verizon, most likely. Talk about a stale phone lineup lately. Holy crap.
