Newly Leaked LG Smartphone Could Be The LG G2, Nexus 5, Or The Batphone


With the release of this brand new Mr Blurrycam shot courtesy of famed leaked @evleaks, the internet is all abuzz as to what this device could be. Does it have hardware buttons? Is it the Nexus 5? Will we see this at Google I/O. It’s safe to say the rumor mill is taking this image and running wild, perhaps rightfully so, it’s a beautiful looking piece of hardware. However, I’m questioning the design of that earpiece which is my opinion slightly ruins the sleek look of the total hardware. The bottom line is we have absolutely no idea what this is other an upcoming LG Android device that maybe, just maybe could be the Nexus 5, iPhone 6, or hiding a gateway to another dimension.

What do you guys think this leaked device is from LG? What do you want it to be?

    still trying to figure out the title…

    • ceegii63

      confusing as hell right?

      • This is why you don’t write posts from your phone.

        • Ben Jammin’

          You can do featured images for posts from your phone? I haven’t been able to figure it out…

          I use the Disqus app for Windows Phone 8 to comment here (much easier and one of the exclusive awesome apps for WP). As for the WordPress app, the only way I’ve found to do featured images is when using the Dashboard via the app. Which is kind of ridiculous to me in this day and age. It should be able to interface with the blog’s images in the app itself.

  • noelsito

    it’s DEFINITELY the iphone 6

  • ceegii63

    someone had a party last night eh? Hangover?

    • Haha no no, just posting from my phone!

      • ceegii63

        from an iPhone ;-)

  • Ginadagelatina

    its the lg optimus L10?

  • So the iPhone 6 could possible be made my another manufacturer O_o (????)

    • No, it was sarcasm.

      • Oh,, cause I’m like *confused*, lol

        • I really don’t know why, I grant that the original title was confusing but people should instantly recognize only Apple makes the iPhone.

        • And that’s why it made it confusing, knowing that. I didn’t get how it could be a iPhone 6. Things change, it’s even said iPhones are not exactly made from Apple. They are designed by Apple, but the different components are from other manufacturers. Just because something started one way, doesn’t mean that it can’t end another way, or change somewhere in the middle. With that said, for me personally, it was easy for me to get confused (knowing that).

      • Hogpistol

        Isn’t the Batphone supposed to be red? It’s clearly not that. Geez David.

        • Haha this is the Chris Nolan edition!

  • Guest

    in the title, do you mean LG optimus G2?

  • OmeerRahman

    I see the point you’re trying to make with your ambiguous comment David. We get it, you have no idea what this device is or what it’ll be called but c’mon iPhone 6? Really? Judging by the comments you already have a few poor souls confused and pondering if the iPhone 6 will be made by a manufacturer other than Apple.

    • I changed the title but if there is anyone out there gullible enough to believe someone other than Apple would make the next iphone they really shouldn’t be on a tech blog.

      • SSSSSONNY!!

        I’ll drink to that!

      • But “someone other than Apple” is making the iPhone; Samsung, LG, Sony, Foxconn… LoL

      • Hilton GoWahoos Redskins

        You might be giving iphone user’s too much credit. Sure a lot of them have common sense and tech savvy, but some of the people I support at work have iphones and I have to teach them how to copy a file from a folder to the desktop on their computer. But they own that iphone and can’t wait to get in line for the next one

        • I don’t think that’s a fair sample of iPhone owners. I prefer the iPhone as my main device and I’m certainly tech savvy. The same can be said for Android smartphone owners, I know a lot who are equally clueless about technology in general but own Android.


    Yeahhhh, that’s another piece of crap LG G, Or Optimus phone. I have too much faith in the NEXUS and iPhone brand for the build quality to be looking like a wanna be Galaxy S IV.


      Don’t stay on TMONEWS at work lol

    • Napster87

      how’s any brand supposed to gain any type of ground with that mind set, Mr. Souvannarath?

      • SSSSSONNY!!

        I’m just saying, whoever thinks that’s the new NEXUS go jump off of a bridge preferrably one that has sharp rocks at the bottom and little water.

  • steveb944

    IPhone 6! Jk.

    Honestly it may be the Nexus 5 but at the same time it’s too much branding from LG in the front. Other option is a Vanilla Android that we’ll see in Google I/O.

  • James

    I am not holding my breath for this one, mine as well get the galaxy s4 or the htc one right now rather than wait.

  • TechHog

    I really hope it’s the Batphone…

    BTW, the LG logo rules out Nexus 5

    • BD1971

      How does the logo rule out the Nexus 5 ? It’s a prototype. When it’s ready to be released it doesn’t mean it will still be there. Looks more like a Nexus design then an Optimus.

      • TechHog

        LG isn’t exactly know for using their own designs anymore.

  • xmiro

    Big screen. Thing bezel. Rounded corners. Were it not for the logo… starting to become difficult to tell these things apart.

    • h_f_m

      Apple lawsuit in…

  • Impatient Waiter

    looks slick as hell, but freaking huge, maybe it’s just the picture… Hopefully the LG doubles as a home button – I’m looking at you HTC One!!!

    • TechHog

      From the looks of it, it uses onscreen buttons.

    • CPPCrispy

      I think its about the same size as the Nexus 4. I came to this conclusion by unzooming the photo so the plastic end piece is about the same size as several of my micro usb cables. I then measured it with a ruler and and it was about the size of a Nexus 4 according to Googles spec sheet.

      With that said, the measurement is probably completely wrong since its from a photo on my screen. Also, I think the phone looks bigger than it is because the photo was taken at an angle (bottom is wider then the top).

    • Quan Bui

      I didn’t like HTC One’s 2 button layout at first, but it certainly didn’t take long for me to get used to it lol. Double Tap FTW!

  • angel13chris

    looks like what would happen if the nexus 4 and the galaxy 4 had a baby.. it shall be called, the galaxy nexus 4

    • bleeew

      Then where are Galaxy Nexus 2, and 3?

      • NextBig313

        That will never happen.

  • Quan Bui

    I certainly hope LG is making a top tier phone again. We can definitely use some more competition for high-end phones. Even though I feel this way, LG Android phones have always been 50/50. You’ll either think it’s a really good phone, or completely hate it.

  • Hopefully there will be a T-Mobile version of this device.

    • h_f_m

      I’d like to see some specs before I start wishing for it to land on a carrier.

  • GennyCreamAle

    This leaked LG device possibly being the iPhone 6 is probably the funniest thing I’ve read from you, lmao. Nice!

  • bozgp

    Comment section doesn’t load on Nexus 4. Anyone else having this issue?

    BTW, I am heartbroken over the iphone 6 misunderstanding. If you’re truly confused at times, it’s probably best to shut up and think it out for a little while. Speaking out is certainly the worst option.

    • Nope using the n4 as we speak

    • Svengalis

      I typed this on my nexus 4

  • SocalTeknique

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the T-Mobile G2X II 4G LTE+ Advance Pro

    • NextBig313

      that statement looks about right

  • Alvin Brinson

    Has the look of a test mule to me.

  • turb0wned

    It’s not a Nexus. A Nexus device wouldn’t have LG in the front of the phone.

  • 0neTw0

    Batphone? I wonder if super heroes and Villains used cell phones what would they actually use?

    • Mark

      Batman has his own private nationwide cellphone network; for a phone he uses a modified Galaxy Note B that unfolds into a jet-powered escape pod (think “wireless zipline”).

      Wolverine uses a 1st-generation Motorola CLIQ, just because it feeds the bitterness.

      Superman uses his ears.

  • Josue

    Another LG phone

  • Clearly this is the upgrade to Optimus G Pro, meet the Optimus G Primal Master Sevical Code thirty 4 five sixty 5 google naexus 8

  • Ronnie Miller

    After the horrible experience, or should I say experiences, with the G2x, I don’t think I would be spending anymore money on anything LG.

    • h_f_m

      The Nexus 4 is fantastic.

    • 0neTw0

      I have the G2x sure it had its quirks but still better than any Blackberry I ever had. Now I use the Nexus 4 and its a pretty damn good phone. It was a toss up with the Optimus G. I really wanted the micro SD but I’ll take timely updates over carrier updates and control any day.


    I just hope this thing gets a 2ghz processor when it becomes a Nexus. I mean the Motorola RAZR I has one and it came out last year, ridiculous. I just feel that Google needs to make sure this Nexus rolls out properly and continues to be the vanguard reference model that other manufacturers look upon in terms of software and hardware

    • h_f_m

      2Ghz Single Core Atom… frequency means nothing, # of cores and architecture are meaningful. You can keep that 2Ghz Atom…

  • Irfan

    100% this is not a nexus phone , google will never allow to place maker logo at front .

    • sushimane

      true but the nexus 4 had the lg logo but they swap the logo with the nexus instead and slap on pure android.

    • Nate3333x

      Not true. Prototypes can have as many logos as they want. It is the final product that matters. The Nexus 4 is based on the LG Optimus so this could very well be the Nexus 5. It is not smart to be 100% sure of something you have no clue about.

      • 0neTw0

        Nexus 4 is based on the Optimus G but only hardware wise. The shape and style are completely different.

      • Alan713

        would it not be too early for Nexus 5? usually they release in Oct/Nov. Although Nexus One was renewed after less than a year i believe

        • h_f_m

          They would have to be nearly done with design and built prototypes by now if they plan on having it in consumer hands in November.

  • Klaatu Nikto

    It’s a UFO – Unidentified Fone Object.

  • Wilma Flintstone

    I’m just going to wait for next week and see what Google is working on.

  • conservative_motorcyclist

    lulz, iPhone 6!

  • LayC

    I would love it to be the next G2… I still have not found a phone worthy to upgrade from the old but great G2.

  • Dennis Da Menace

    Actually, it’s a LG Windows Blue Screen of Death Phone hahaha

  • FABS

    Don’t hink its nexus 5 cos the LG on front Google wants plan black better looking

  • Lwho?exactly….

    Well if it is the G2 good luck getting updates from LG. We all know they are amazing in customer service help. Also we all know that there software updates come out on time. Just like the G1. That was a crap tablet that was their “Flagship” tablet. Trust me I actually worked for T-mobile and talking to the LG reps that visited our site they were almost useless.

  • kevev

    The curved glass is a terrible design. You would need a huge case to protect the glass. I think flat glass is a safer design.

  • Looks like an SGS 3/4 design :/

  • Svengalis

    There is no way this is the nexus 5 its to early for a new nexus

  • I’m gonna say it’s not a Nexus 5 with that huge LG logo on the front. But all I gotta say is “DAT BEZEL”

  • phinphan1

    I’m hoping it’s the new webos phone from LG.
