New LG G2 Leaks Indicates A Removable 2540 mAh Battery
LG is expected to launch a sequel to its venerable Optimus G smartphone on August 7th in New York. Dubbed ‘G2‘, the phone is supposed to have some of the best internal specs of any device released this year, indicating the company’s partnership with Qualcomm is alive and well.
With a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS display, a 2.3Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 13MP BSI camera and, newly-leaked, a 2540mAh battery, the G2 appears impressively adorned. Because the device is so thin — under 8mm if the leaks are accurate — LG has opted to include rear volume buttons, along with what appears to be a play/pause key between them.
While the LG G2 has done the normal press rendering dance in front of the cameras we have yet to see what’s under the hood. So a new screenshot, despite its weird crop job, gives us a sneak peak at what exactly lies beneath the surface. You can see the back-facing volume and power buttons, while also giving us sight of the device’s battery, which seems like it’ll be a removable one.
As a comparison we can say the Galaxy S 4 has a 2600 mAh battery and the HTC One has a 2300 mAh battery. Simply put, this LG G2 leak has the battery sitting in the middle at the moment. Alternatively, the LG Optimus G Pro is currently sporting a 3140 mAh battery. But again, we need to look towards real-world use for the end result.
If this all pans to be true, would you opt for the LG G2 just for the removable battery feature? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
