If you were not interested in the upcoming LG Optimus G successor, this should get your interest. According to South Korean media, LG Optimus G2 is expected to be so thin that the company has decided to put the power button and volume rocker on the back of the phone. Apparently, LG found the buttons placed on the “very thin” sides of Optimus G2 un-comfortable to use during simulations, so the phone will now have buttons on the back.
Given the fact that we are yet to see any visual evidence corroborating the Korean media reports, we are more than sceptical about it.
The last time we saw anything on the back of a smartphone, was with Motorola Backflip Android phone, where the company placed touchpad on the back.
We have already heard from the company that it will be announcing Optimus G2 in the third quarter of 2013, so we should start getting the image leaks in coming days.
