LG's successor to the G2 will be officially unveiled later this month, but that hasn't stopped some folks from leaking photos of the phone.

Korea-based site Seeko on Thursday published two images of what it claims is the LG G3. The images show the back of a handset featuring a camera, dual-LED flash, and another unidentified sensor. An image of the front of the handset shows a massive screen with an extremely thin bezel on either side. A micro-USB port can also be spotted in the images.

LG is slated to unveil its next flagship handset, believed to be known as the LG G3, on May 27. The company recently sent out invites to the event, which included a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson saying, "To be simple is to be Great."

LG hasn't revealed any details on the G3 but that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from leaking all kinds of possible features, including dustproof and water-resistant capabilities, a 16-megapixel rear camera, and a Quad HD (1,440x2,560 pixels) display.

It's not clear whether the images posted by Seeko are really the G3 or something else. CNET has contacted LG for comment, however, and will update this story when we have more information.
