    According to a supposedly confirmed report from the Wall Street Journal, the LG G2 which will soon be unveiled at LG's August 7th press event, does indeed have 5.2-inch display as was rumored previously. Here's a quote with some additional info,

    The new G2 flagship from LG is shaping up to be a serious contender in the high-end smartphone market. If LG can start improving the rate at which they update their devices, they could get really competitive with Samsung and Apple.

    Why in the world would I care about how thin the display is?

    If that were the case, then why aren't they touting how thin the phone is? I guarantee they are talking specifically about the thinness of the display figuring (probably correctly) that most people won't pick-up on the distinction.

    Thinner phone = harder to hold it when talking on it.

    They did say the bezel was only 2.3mm thick so they kind did mention the thinner body.

    Thinner display means more room inside for a bigger battery.
