LG sends out invites for LG G2 event showing off fingerprint scanner

lg_stock

It may be late, but the tech world never sleeps. Tonight, LG sent out invites for its upcoming flagship, the LG G2. And interestingly enough, LG’s practically pulling  a Motorola here and teasing the phone at every chance. LG’s not being shy with the name and a couple of the features though. The invitation clearly calls the phone the LG G2 and shows off an outline of the phone. That same outline also shows off a couple of tasty tidbits.

These morsels include the same rear volume controls that we saw before as well as confirming that the piece in between the arrows is indeed a fingerprint scanner. How does it confirm that? Simply look at the picture down below and you can see the reflection of a finger pressing itself onto the small piece. LG can’t get much more obvious than that.

Other than that, it gives us another compliment with the phone saying, “To me, you are perfect.” The invitation also says that “we are learning from you” which suggests that LG might be listening to what consumers have to say and then designing its products based on that.

What did you take away from the invite? Are you excited for the G2?

    White there could be a fingerprint scanner there, I don’t see how that image suggests that over showing that the power button is located between the volume buttons.

      I concur – I don’t think it’s a fingerprint scanner at all. I think it’s a reverse side scroller.

        Like a backwards Mario Brothers? You give the princess up and try to run away?

    I can see the point in a figure print scanner but, I don’t see my self using that thing at all if just barely once in a while

    Nexus 5?

    Looks like they’re keeping the sloped edge design like on the Nexus 4. Sweet.

    I had a Lenovo Thinkpad with a fingerprint scanner. Seemed cool at the time until one day my system security software decided the driver for the fingerprint scanner was malware and refused to load it on boot effectively locking me out of my own machine. It was sorta funny after the hour long support call and a few beers. Not so much during. Disabled it and haven’t trusted fingerprint scanners since. Retina scanner maybe.

      Maybe you had a bad security software app installed? It’s not like the driver for the fingerprint scanner malfunctioned on its own but the app detected a false positive.

      In Windows 8.1 the fingerprint scanner drivers will be native and such a problem like in your case will never happen.

      Anyway I really hope its a fingerprint sensor in LG G2 :P
