Evleaks offers first glimpse of buttonless LG phone with unique earpiece
Prolific leaker Evleaks has posted images of what could be a future LG handset. The device, pictured on Facebook, shows a spartan front face with only an LG logo down below. There’s also a curved glass front and an unusual looking reflective earpiece. In today’s post, the leaker offers a guess that this might be the rumored Optimus G2.
The mystery phone seems to share some design cues with the Nexus 4, but there’s no suggestion at all that this is a Nexus device — for one, LG’s branding is very much front and center. But it could indicate a change of tack for LG, if it’s to join the likes of Motorola and Sony with a push towards on-screen buttons. (It’s a move that would undoubtedly please Android purists.)
For the moment that’s about all we can surmise from an image showing a featureless phone with a blank screen. If you’ve got any theories of your own, be sure to shout out in the comments. The original image is linked below, as is a close-up of the bezel.
Phil weighing in here: The Optimus G Pro has nicely hidden buttons as well. I’m willing to bed there are a couple on either side of that LG Logo.
