It has already been confirmed that LG is launching their next flagship phone this upcoming May 28. The LG G3 has been subject to lots of speculation, leaks and talks already, but what exactly are we waiting for? Read on ton find out what to expect from the LG G3.
Design & Construction
The LG G3 has leaked in a lot of images already, with cases or without. From the looks of it, the body may employ a unibody aluminum finish to give it a premium feel (or just plastic with aluminum design). LG’s signature back buttons will still be making a show here, and beside the camera to the left, there is something that looks like a sensor with a yet to be known function. The competition is currently offering different hardware selections with fingerprint scanners, dual cameras, heart rate monitors and waterproofing, so it’s exciting to see what LG will pull off here.
From the leaked specs to speculations itself, we may be looking at a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal memory + micro SD card support and a 13+2 megapixel camera pair that has still not been discussed much. It is reported that it’s going to be the same sensor with the OnePlus One with OIS+, so we’ll have to see how that turns out. As for the battery, it is expected to pack the same capacity as the LG G Pro 2 at 3,200mAh.
That’s about it for the specs, and whether the hardware can support that crazy resolution is still questionable. Regardless, those are still top of the line specs, beating a lot of those already in the market.
LG is also upping up their game when it comes to software if the rumors are correct. Based from the leaked screenshots, their UI looks cleaner and better with the new design. It looks like they will lessen the clutter.
The next version of Android still hasn’t been announced yet, so it’s definitely going to be 4.4 KitKat. In addition, a Google Now-like interface is rumored to be arriving in the form of Concierge. How that will come into play is still unknown.
On top of everything, LG seems like they’re pushing more software features with the G3 like the QuickWindow case again, now in circular design – and speaking of which, the LG G3 will most likely have support for their G Watch.
That’s about it for the LG G3. So far, we’re looking at a winner here if these are all to be believed. LG has the chance to pull off one amazing smartphone if they manage to get the features right. Check out their teaser below:
We will be in Singapore on the LG G3’s launch on the 28th so stay tuned!
