The part of the phone that is seen in the photo shows a back button setup or a speaker grille and a brushed metal finish. A back button setup and brushed texture is normally associated with LG s smartphones. Some publications are speculating that it is the LG G Flex 2, but considering the original G Flex was powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor, the handset in the teaser is unlikely to be its successor.
LG has been rumored to be working on an all-new H series of smartphones. While details are sketchy, reports claimed that these new smartphones will feature HD displays and run on Android Lollipop out of the box.
Furthermore, the smartphone could also be the second generation Asus Zenfone, which the company had teased last week. The chances of that happening however are slim considering Zenfones have traditionally been powered by Intel chipsets.
