The upcoming handset will sport a 5.2-inch Full HD display with 1920x1080p resolutions and run on Android mobile OS v4.2 Jelly Bean with 3GB RAM.

LG G2 is pegged to pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor which can top CPU speed close to 2.3GHz. The chipset also comes with Adreno 330 graphics engine to enable the smartphone to support high-quality video call through LTE-Advanced network.

The intriguing part of the LG G2 is that the smartphone will feature the volume rockers and power button just below the camera on the rear side which is unusual considering the fact that all smartphones have these keys at the lateral side. The smartphone is said to have a narrow bezel which is seemed to be too-thin to place buttons on the lateral side. It will sport a13.0 megapixel main camera with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera at the front side.

The new smartphone is expected to hit retail stores in South Korea on Thursday before hitting other major global markets.
