Today, LG Electronics is set to unveil the G2, the Korean company's flagship smartphone and successor to last year's well-received Optimus G. With so much recent media attention devoted to iPhone speculation, Samsung's seemingly never-ending S4 lineup and the Moto X from Google GOOG -0.93%, it's easy to forget that LG sits third in global smartphone market share according to IDC's latest report. And while the handset division may have lacked for runaway hits over the last few of years, it did manufacture the Google Nexus 4.
The G2 is widely expected to feature a Snapdragon 800 processor, a 5.2-inch LCD Full HD display, 2GB or RAM and a 13MP camera. The most distinctive feature of the new phone (which some think may be the basis of the next Nexus) is the absence of physical buttons on the front and sides of the device, and their placement on the rear of the device.
