The LG G2 will sport a 5.2-inch phablet-sized screen, along with a speedy quad-core processor and uniquely positioned rear buttons. Verizon Wireless has announced it will not only carry the LG G2, but its variant will have a unique exclusive -- built-in wireless charging.

The Verizon LG G2 will officially feature wireless-charging, but LG and Verizon did not comment on how the wireless charging would work -- on whether it would be a Qi-compatible device or utilize a specific accessory from LG.

Built-in wireless charging was also featured in the Nexus 4, the smartphone running a stock version of the Android OS manufactured by LG for Google. The LG G2 pictured on the Verizon Wireless website also features a metallic-looking Rear Key. The LG G2’s Rear Key is a uniquely positioned power button that emits a white LED glow when pressed, sandwiched between two volume keys.

The International Business Times covered the LG G2 reveal event, and also went hands-on with the device. The phablet will contain a quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM. The LG G2 has a 5.2-inch Full HD (1080x1920) screen with 423 pixels-per-inch, or PPI, and 16GB or 32GB of built-in memory. It will run on Android version 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) and contains a 3,000mAh battery and has a 13-megapixel main camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter.

The LG G2 does not have an official release date on Verizon, or any other network for that matter. LG will also release the G2 at an unspecified date through T-Mobile, AT&T and Sprint.
