LG G2 to have 5.2-inch Full HD screen, optical image stabilization?

LG’s upcoming flagship Android smartphone, the G2, has gotten a new round of leaked specs today. We’ve already seen purported pictures of the device not once, but twice already, and it’s pretty clear that it will be crazy thin – and will come with the buttons on the back, not the sides (since apparently it’s too thin for that).

What we also knew so far, this time thanks to LG itself, is that the G2 will sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which makes sense since that’s ‘the’ mobile chipset of the moment (and will power most of the flagships for the second half of the year).

However, up until now we assumed that the G2 will be fitted with a 5-inch touchscreen. According to some unconfirmed information coming in from Techblog though, the size will actually be 5.2 inches. Obviously the Full HD 1080p resolution will be kept. The G2 has been spotted having insanely thin bezels, so the Korean company may have been able to fit an ever so slightly larger display into a chassis that isn’t bigger than those of smartphones with 5-inch screens.

The camera on the back will be a 13 MP unit, once again standard for the high-end in this day and age (well, except for HTC, which is going its own ‘ultrapixel’ way). The camera will feature optical image stabilization (OIS), which is quickly becoming popular with Android makers after debuting on Nokia Windows Phones.

These are all the new details we have for today, but rest assured that by August 7, when the LG G2 is rumored to be announced, we’ll know absolutely everything there is to know about this handset.
