Summary:

A leaked manual for the upcoming LG G2 reveals a nano-SIM, a microSD slot and a removable battery, but no fingerprint reader as many had expected.

We already know a lot about the upcoming LG G2 “phablet,” from its processor all the way to its Samsung-style QuickWindow phone case. The latest news comes in the form of an alleged manual leak, uncovered by French blog Nowhere Else.

According to the manual, the LG G2 will use a nano-SIM card slot, making it one of the first few phones to do so, along with the Apple iPhone 5 and the just-announced Moto X. Additionally, the manual shows a microSD card slot and a removable 2610mAh battery. Both of these are pluses in my book, as they allow for increased storage and the option to carry around a spare battery.

Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be a fingerprint reader, which has been the focus of much recent speculation. Instead, it appears that the back of the phone will be home to volume and power buttons.

LG is holding a launch event for the G2 this Wednesday. We’ll be there to fill in the rest of the details and hopefully get to some spend some quality time with its latest phablet.
