Rumors about LG’s next Android flagship have really been heating up lately, and following last week’s leak of a bunch of G2 imagery, revealing those innovative rear volume controls, we just heard a new rumor that the G2 might be the first smartphone with 3GB of RAM. Hot on the tail of that one comes a new series of claims, revisiting that button issue and looking a little at the phone’s camera.
Now, there are some translation issues that make this rumor a little less than crystal-clear, but Techblog.gr asserts that the G2 will have more than just its volume controls around back, and all of the phone’s physical buttons will live back there, too. The confusing part is that the imagery we’ve seen of the G2 (above) really didn’t have any prominent buttons besides those plus and minus keys, presumably for the volume control. It’s possible that the “flash” between them is another button – maybe power.
According to this, the G2 will feature a 13-megapixel main camera and employ optical stabilization hardware. The source also suggests that the phone will have a 5.2-inch full HD display, and once again mentions a Snapdragon 800 SoC.
Finally, this source directly conflicts those new 3GB rumors, painting the G2 as a 2GB phone. They can’t both be right (unless we’re talking about some market-by-market nonsense), so we wonder what else here might be suspect as well.
