Android Central @ CESWith CES 2013 just a few days away, LG's taken the opportunity to remind us it'll be at the show, and it's bringing along at least one phone-shaped device. In a new teaser trailer released today, the company shows a few frames of what looks like an Optimus G, with its trademark exposed screws down below and cut-away earpiece design up top. There's also a brief glimpse of what appears to be a smart device docked into some larger contraption.

We'll be live in Las Vegas to bring you full coverage of Android at the show, including LG's press conference at 8am Monday morning Vegas time. In the meantime, if you've got any wild theories about what the manufacturer might be preparing for us, you can shout out in the comments.

"There's also a brief glimpse of what appears to be a smart device docked into some larger contraption." or a top loading washer, with a touch screen. (which is what it is)

"There's also a brief glimpse of what appears to be a smart device docked into some larger contraption."

That's one of those "Innovations" Award winners... It's a new model of trash compactor, the LG Shine-On, model N0-UPD8-4U. You simply toss in your current LG smartphone (Optimus G, Optimus 4xHD, Optimus 3D, Prada 3.0, etc) and the Shine-On's interactive touch-panel will show you how much longer it would have been before your phone was to receive an update (measured in years, if at all). Then, it will conveniently crush the device into small chunks, which you can use as mulch for planting a new tree (offsetting the carbon footprint of your old device). Finally, the LG Shine-On's screen will display an ad for a new upcoming LG phone for you to buy when it comes out (again, measured in years).

Seriously, though... will LG announce how much longer it will take for some of their older handsets to get updates? I'd love to hear that, rather than a new flagship to replace their only-3-month-old flagship!
