A few days ago reputable device leaker Evleaks showed an unknown LG smartphone. It had an incredibly thin bezel and a large display, reportedly 5.5-inches in size. It’s expected that this device will be a follow-up to the LG Optimus G, aptly called the LG Optimus G2, but no other details are currently known. The device has once again surfaced online, now revealed in a different angle and giving another glimpse of how thin the bezel really is. Overall, it seems that LG is taking design notes from the success of the Nexus 4 and Optimus G. Of course, this is still considered a rumour until something officially is announced.

    Nexus 5 anyone?

    The other leak showed it has lg logo on it so its not a nexus. Its a device to compete against the s4 they will claim the smallest 5inch phone with thinnest bezels on any phone.

      I also think this should be the successor of LG Optimus G, but it may be related to Nexus 5 too because
      1. Nexus 4 prototype also had ‘With Google’ logo, not indicating it was a Nexus device
      2. As Optimus G is the base hardware and design for Nexus 4, this may be the base for Nexus 5 as well.

      Uh, my Nexus 4 has an LG logo on it. I don’t think that disqualifies it. I still agree that it’s probably not a Nexus. Too early to announce one, since it realistically wouldn’t be released until late fall anyway.

    I hope this trend of 5+ inch screens stop soon. I mean I have decently sized hands but I don’t like needing to use two hands to use the screen efficiently.

      I hope it continues. Bigger screens suit me perfectly.

      dude, just grow bigger hands

    • Jonathan G.

      Damn I can’t believe I never thought of that. Thanks dude!

      Yeah seriously. ^_^
      But in all fairness, you guys have had all the tiny phone in the past, now it’s my turn to have phones that don’t look like I’m talking on a Mars bar! Big phones, Woot!

    The thing I don’t get is if this is a follow up to the Optimus G then why is it the same screen size as the current Optimus G Pro? Either way, if it IS the right screen size as mentioned and has even better specs than the Pro I would seriously consider buying it. I need a phone with a bigger screen.
