If we’re to believe the teases, we’re just about three weeks away from the launch of the LG G2. The phone’s been starring in a lot of leaks lately, and we’ve had quite a few opportunities to check out the handset’s hardware – including those unusual rear-mounted controls. Today we get yet another glimpse at the smartphone, giving us a look at those buttons without the phone’s rear panel in the way, and suggesting what we can expect from the G2′s battery.
As you can see, we appear to be looking at a 2540mAh capacity. That’s up a solid 20% from the original Optimus G’s 2100mAh cell.
Once again, there’s the claim being made that the G2 will not have the 3GB of RAM that’s been popping up in rumors. After a brief period of looking likely, many of the most recent rumors have been backing away from the idea. Perhaps, if it does show up, it will only be present in the G2 hardware for certain markets? This one we’re looking at here, and which these rumors target, is a South Korean edition of the G2, for instance.
We can also observe here that the middle rear button is pretty clearly not a flash, as had once been rumored.
