An unannounced and not previously seen LG handset has leaked on to the internet, making our smartphone taste buds go off in envy. Famed leakster EvLeaks has posted the image, providing no information apart from a speculative guess at the LG Optimus G2 we've been hearing about

As you can tell from the image, it bears a close resemblance to the LG Nexus 4, but sports a taller screen and different speaker set-up. If we had to guess, we'd say this isn't destined for Google's Nexus program - given the logo at the front  who knows.

Pocket-lint exclusively reported in April that LG had plans to release the unannounced LG Optimus G2 in the UK in Q3 or Q4 this year and that it would be a much higher specified handset, aimed at attracting customers looking for a top of the line smartphone. 

Is this the LG Optimus G2 or something else entirely? Does the LG Optimus G2 become the Nexus 5? Looks like we'll have to wait to hear for sure.
