Among all the flagship devices that were launched this year, one that is missing from the action has been LG. However, in a couple of hours, the second best South Korean smartphone maker will launch its latest flagship device called the LG G3, which will give all the other flagship devices launched this year a hard run for their money.
However, the handset is not a big secret anymore, as it was leaked several times in the past. Moreover, the company itself has also released a couple of video teasers online. Among all the things the most awaited part of the handset that LG fans have been waiting to see is the QHD display. Apart from that, another great thing about the phone is the metallic looks and the rear buttons used in the handset.
The G3 from LG is one smartphone that will be standing against upcoming HTC One (M8) Prime and Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime, which are also reportedly said to come up with a similar QHD display.
Today, GizBot has come up with rumor round-up of LG G3. But before we go into the in-depth-details of the phone, lets see the basic specs that is expected to feature in the handset.
The LG G3 will come with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) display. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor coupled with 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM. It is rumored to come with in two variants depending on the 2GB and 3GB RAM. Also obviously there is a possibility of the handset being offered in 16GB and 32GB native storage variants. Imagining aspect would be pretty amazing as it would feature a 13 MP OIS+ feature. It will be powered by at least 3,000 mAh removable battery.
That was the basic and concise rumor round-up of the specs of LG G3. You might want to take a look at the sliders below for in-depth-details on the rumored specs that the upcoming LG G3 is probably going to sport.
LG G3: Display and Dimension
As said earlier, the LG G3 is coming with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) LCD display panel. It is manufactured by LG itself. The bezel is said to be very thin at 1.15mm, and the display will offer a pixel density of 538ppi. Moreover, it is rumored to come with a water and dust-resistant build.
Dimension-wise, we are basically talking about the phone which might close to 146.3mm tall, 74.6mm wide, and 8.9mm of thickness. However, according to the sizes if the cases from Spigen, the LG G3 might measure 41.8mm tall by 73mm wide body with 9.3mm of thickness.
LG G3: Design
Design is one aspect of the LG G3 which has been talked about a lot. All the images leaked in the recent past has actually helped us imagine the design of the device.
Recent pictures of the G3 handset show the shape of the power/lock key, and the volume rocker used in the handset. It is comparatively very different than that of other LG handsets with rear buttons. Some say that the LG G3 will come with a polycarbonate body with a brushed metal coating.
LG G3: Processor and Storage
The upcoming LG G3 is most probably powered by 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8974-AB processor, the same one that Sony has used in the Xperia Z2, and come equipped with 3 GB of RAM.
The G3 is expected to come with 32 GB of storage out of the box, but the exact internal memory capacity, and the presence or absence of a microSD slot for storage expansion, will likely depend on the region it is sold at. In terms of RAM, 3GB of LPDDR3 is something which we are looking forward to see. But there are also rumors that suggest that the handset will come in 2GB and 3GB RAM variants.
The recently leaked presentation document also revealed a 32GB of eMMC storage, while the original leak states both 16 and 32GB variants. There could be a microSD card slot as well in the device.
LG G3: Camera
Obviously, since the LG G3 is a flagship smartphone, rumors are loud and clear about the handset sporting 13MP OIS+ camera. Also a 4K video recording support is highly expected. One of the tech blog also talks about a special palm gesture to get to the camera straight from the lock screen. There is no word on the front facing shooter but the company will not use less than 2MP front facing shooter.
LG G3: Software
LG G3 will also be offered a new LG UI which looks little bit flatter than the current one. Obviously the UI will be layered on top of Android 4.4 KitKat OS.
According to PhoneArena, a new feature called "advanced personalization" will also be making a debut in this phone. Also, LG apparently wants to go beyond Google Now's personal assistant options, like location-based reminders, calendar organization, traffic alerts, and intelligent push of news and location-based recommendations. The feature is apparently going to be called Concierge-Board.
