LG G2 user manual leak reveals microSD slot, removable battery and moreAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Despite the fact that the LG G2 won't be officially unveiled until later this week, quite a bit of information about the device is already available thanks to a handful of leaks and just as much (if not more) teasing from LG itself. Today a few more details on the G2 have trickled out ahead of LG's August 7 event thanks to some leaked images that've been shared by French site NowhereElse.fr and purportedly come from the phone's user manual.
The leaked shots show that the LG G2, or at least this Korean LG-F320 version of it, will measure in at 138.5mm x 70.9mm x 8.9mm and weigh 143g. It's also been revealed that the G2 will utilize nano-SIM cards, making it part of a small club of devices that currently includes the iPhone 5 and Moto X.
Speaking of cards that are tiny and easy to lose, the manual appears to show that the G2 will accept microSD cards as well, allowing users to supplement the device's internal storage. Rounding out the list of G2 features shown in this leaked manual is a removable battery (rumored to be of the 2,610mAh variety) and a set of buttons resting beneath the rear camera that control the volume and power/lock functions.
The G2 is LG's follow-up to the Optimus G and will likely take the flagship spot atop the company's lineup once it launches. We'll be getting the full rundown on the G2 at a big event on August 7, but LG has already revealed that the device is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, which is currently Qualcomm's top-end mobile chipset. Previous leaks have suggested that the G2 will also pack a 5.2-inch 1080p display and 13-megapixel rear camera.
So far it certainly sounds like the G2's got the makings of a high-end smartphone. We'll have to wait until August 7 to see how the thing actually performs, but with a Snapdragon 800 at its core, the experience should be fairly hiccup-free.
