We love leaks of unreleased hardware, and endlessly delight in poring over any images we get our hands on, looking both for revealing details, as well as any signs that they might be less than legitimate. Often, we find ourselves in some ambiguous middle ground, with a suspicion or two that something may be amiss, but lacking any really stand-out reason to dismiss the find. Well, today we’re feeling just a little more strongly about a new “leak” that’s going around, and can pretty confidently say that evidence has not arrived depicting the LG G2 in multiple colors.
A rainbow-hued assortment of phones may be something more and more companies are experimenting – just look at Motorola and the Moto X – but for now something like that would still be coming out of left field from a company like LG.
Much, much more than that, though, it’s the images themselves we take issue with. For one, these are pretty clearly cases, and not formal, from-the-factory hardware color options; just look at how the colored bit fits so loosely around the flash. Heck the “For LG G2″ text should make that clear enough on its own – these are products intended for use with the phone, not the phone itself.
And the big one: that screen reveals the source of this imagery to be the leak we saw two weeks ago. That suggests that this might be from a case maker speculating about designs, but the use of pics from an old leak screams “this is not based on any insider knowledge, whatsoever.”
Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.
