What are these 2 buttons?

I have been waiting for the full picture of the back side of K7.

Now after looking at this photo. What are these 2 buttons for?
Does anybody know the function of them?
It's so blurry, I can't read it at all.
But the second button looks like "Menu".

My conclusion as well, having upsized just a little and adding some USM Edit 2: Those 2 also take care of the remaining buttons on the left of the K10/20 since the playback and delete buttons remain on the left.

Edit: The only 2 buttons I can't identify are the functions of the center OK button and the right arrow. Since the center is most certainly OK, what's its other function since it looks like there's more "stuff" labeled on it? The right arrow looks like a bracketing button but from what's been said...there is no bracketing button...

Couldn't they have used a smaller LCD and keep the positions of the buttons more or less the same???

you're going to be in the vast minority for that statement "I want a smaller LCD".

even with this new layout, i still see room they could've used for the SR switch.

They could, but what do you think the reviewers would have said?
Actually, I think the button layout looks reasonable. Need to hold it in my hands to really know, but it looks as if this could be more sensible than having all buttons below the LCD (like e.g. the 40D).

The only times I touch the SR switch, is when my camera bag has moved it for me - or when using a tripod. Maybe they've added a sensor for the latter? That would have been cool
