The day after LG sent out invites for the Optimus G2 unveiling, a massive leak gave us an up-close look at the device. The event is planned for August 7, but the device will launch in its home market a couple of weeks later on August 20 according to the new info.

The Optimus G2 will have a 5.2" IPS display with 1080p resolution and a razor thin bezel (which we saw in the photos). It will launch with Android 4.2.2 running on a Snapdragon 800 chipset with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.3GHz and 2GB of RAM (LG is reportedly considering moving up to 3GB). The chipset also enables 150Mbps LTE-Advanced 4G connectivity. A removable 2,700mAh battery will feed all this.

The camera is pegged at 13MP with unusual buttons right next to it, which will serve multiple functions. There are dual-speakers on the bottom.

The LG Optimus G2 is supposedly based on work LG is doing on the Nexus 5, but that will be announced only after the G2
