LG Optimus G2 rumoured to have 5.2-inch display and optical image stabilisation

More LG Optimus G2 specification rumours have emerged, including the suggestion that the super-slim smartphone will come with a larger-than-expect display and some advanced camera tech.

Greek website Techblog carries the reports the that LG Optimus G2 will exceed the 5-inch display size most had expected. According to slightly questionable “unconfirmed information,” the forthcoming smartphone will come with a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD IPS screen.

It’s suggested that the phone’s extremely small bezel means that a slight increase in screen size is possible without making the phone’s body any bigger.

Another interesting new spec rumour from the same source is that the LG Optimus G2’s 13-megapixel camera will feature optical image stabilisation (OIS). This is a feature that’s only just starting to make its way into phones, allowing for steadier shots and videos and opening up the potential for markedly superior low light shots.

It’s thanks to OIS that the Nokia Lumia 920 and the HTC One are such strong performers in low light conditions.

Otherwise, we know from a leaked promotional video and earlier rumours that the LG G2 will feature an unusual rear-mounted volume control setup. This is apparently in reaction to the fact that the phone will be extremely thin.

We also know for a fact that the LG Optimus G2 will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU. LG and Qualcomm issued a joint statement revealing as much last month.

We’ll know more when the LG Optimus G2 is unveiled at a New York press event on August 7.
