Rumor: LG G2 launching in Korea on August 20, Nexus 5 coming in October with Android 5.0

Just because the soon to be unveiled LG G2 superphone holds few secrets to the press anymore, that doesn’t mean the rumor bonanza is set to stop. Or slow down in any way.


Following numerous reports relating to the phone’s probable unveiling date (August 7, don’t forget), the G2 showed up in all its glory very recently, first in a number of low-res stills and then in a high-quality video clip. In a nutshell, this thing is an open book for us, complete with a spec sheet that’s last been a mystery… a long time ago.

With all that in mind, what could there be left to talk about? Not much, it’s true, but, courtesy of a new Korean report, G2’s specs have become even more credible.

Plus, we’re now hearing LG is planning to intro the beast in its homeland come August 20. Not sure if that’s the day a second unveiling event is slated for or if actual sales are to begin then, but of course we’re all rooting for the latter.

Now, about those specs. According to this new source of ours, which truth be told might be wrong, the G2 is set to in fact be a 5.2-incher with Full HD screen, “zero bezel gap” (erm, close to zero, anyway), quad-core 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chip and 2 or 3 GB of RAM.


I know, it sounds very far-fetched, but apparently LG hasn’t made a final decision as to G2’s RAM. The rest is all decided however and sounds positively dreamy: 13 MP rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilization), 2,700 mAh removable (!) battery, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, LTE-Advanced.

A lot of information to take in all at once, but there’s more. Ruliweb claims to have heard word of the mysterious LG-made Nexus 5 as well, which could land in early October with similar specs to the G2 and… Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie on top of it all.

I highly doubt that some obscure Korean website could have ever got such a huge scoop on what may well be the most groundbreaking device in Android’s short history, but I’ve been wrong before, so there’s no reason for me to completely crush your dreams… yet. Go ahead, picture the N5 with KLP, Full HD almost bezel-less screen, Snapdragon 800 heat and OIS camera. Can you see it?
