Did LG Just Tease a New Phone in Their CES Press Event Trailer?


With CES only days away, the rumormill is working overtime thanks to companies like LG. We just posted a story about the company possibly unveiling the 5.5″ Optimus G2 at the event, but this new teaser video may help back that in some form.

At the 18-second mark, if you can last that long with the 90s French discotheque track playing in the background, you’ll see a device that resembles either a tablet or a smartphone. You can see the bottom screws peaking through, a design highlight that graced both the original Optimus G and the Nexus 4. Beyond this quick shot, though, you can’t see much else. It could be the phone-tablet hybrid that has been talked about a variety of times over the last few days, or we could just be imagining things.

You tell us.

    Looks like the same corner (the smaller one in the background) of the Optimus G2 in the previous article today.

    Shoddy reporting Kellex! How could you not mention the drool-worthy washing machine at 0:19??

  • J Davis

    i’m more excited about that new washer they hinted at in the video..

  • nightscout13

    What the Nexus 4 should have been.

  • PalmerAdam

    BL40 2?

  • Bill Stebbins

    The placement of that screw in the bottom corner looks just like the one on my Nexus 4.

  • Pat Kerby

    What is the Carrier? Has that been announced? Its just another Note2

  • It’s the Nexus 5.5 X MAXX 4G LTE Plus, obviously.

  • Maybe they are going to announce that they have finally ramped up production of the Nexus 4 and will fulfill all orders by the end of January!

  • Akashshr

  • SumDude

    Looks like a phone. You can actually see an earpiece

    • NexusPhan69

      Really? I can’t see it… 🙁

      • SumDude

        Pause it at 18 seconds.

        • NexusPhan69

          Good call. I thought it was in the picture. I changed screen brightness and was rotating my phone like an idiot.

    • QQpayne

      If you pause it just right you can also see either a volume rocker or power button on the right side of the device.

  • I hope not. I would really like to see something from another manufacturer

  • Tommy Thompson

    It’s definitely not at the 20 second mark like another site thought! lol

      Yea. That looks like a washing machine at 20 seconds. Not a phone.
