Update on 10/7/2013: A tipster sent images of the alleged LG Optimus G2 to Engadget. Contrary to earlier rumors, the device will sport navigation buttons on the front. LG has replaced the capacitive buttons in favor of on-screen ones.
One photo clearly shows a physical button between the volume controls located just below the rear camera. The tipster also confirms that the device will sport a 5.2-inch display with very thin bezels.

As LG's launch event in New York is one month away, leaks on its upcoming flagship model begun to pick up pace.
Commonly referred as the Optimus G2, the device is said to come with a 5.2-inch Full-HD IPS display, a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 3GB RAM.
What's even more interesting about the LG Optimus G2 is the relocation of the navigation and physical buttons to the back of the device. Word has it that the power button, the volume controls and the camera zoom keys are situated near the bottom rear of the device to give more screen real estate on the front.
Leaked images of the alleged device appear to coincide with the latest specs leak as there seems to be no buttons seen on the front or side of the device. We will know whether all these are true in a few weeks. Keep your eyes peeled to HardwareZone.
