LG may have quite the fan and user base back in its native in South Korea, but the company is yet to kick off a similar fan base as far as the Indian smartphone market is concerned. However, all that seems like changing with the arrival of the new G3 handset from LG.
With Bollywood mega star Amitabh Bachchan present at the event to introduce the handset, LG has finally taken the veils off the new G3 handset. And truthfully, the handset shows a lot of promise in terms of the specs and features the handset is dealing in.
The new G3 handset offers a resolution output that is four times greater than that of the regular HD panels that are available in the market at the moment. This means more new headache for the likes of Samsung and HTC to deal with.
Checking up on the specs for the handset, the LG-made G3 comes with a massive 5.5-inch (2560×1440 pixels) Quad HD IPS display churning out the pixel density of 538ppi and it is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 (MSM8974AC) processor with Adreno 330 GPU. It will be offered either with 2GB or 3GB RAM depending on the internal space with Android 4.4.2 (KitKat) OS.
Imaging aspect of the handset is pretty impressive as it features a 13MP rear camera with OIS, Dual LED Flash and a new LG technology that uses Laser to Auto Focus and 4K video recording. You will also get a 2.1MP front-facing shooter.
LG is also offering 16GB and 32GB internal memory variants of the device which can be further expanded up to 128GB using microSD card and connectivity options will include 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 , GPS, NFC and Slim Port. LG G3 comes powered by a 3000 mAh removable battery with a Qi wireless charging facility.
But that's all you get in terms of specs and numbers. However, what really are the special features of the new handset? What else is there to look forward to in the handset? We take a look at the top 5.
The LG G3 has a coming of age display and color reproduction technology inside it. So get ready to experience vibrant, un-pixelated and ultra-sharp images in 2,560 x1,440 pixels, while also seeing everything in a mind-blowing 538ppi (commonly used to print high-quality gallery artbooks).
In case you have heard a lot of criticisms about LG's UIs in the recent past, this new one will make all the critics eat their own words. The newly made intuitive and aesthetic graphic UI is present that removes unwanted visual elements to improve the overall user interface. In fact, each function features a different color making finding apps easier.
Sure we have a number of manufacturers in the market offering handsets that come with advanced cameras, but with the G3's camera now in the limelight, problems are expected to crop up for others. All you need to do is concentrate on the subject of the photo and the device's laser will measure the distance to the object in micro seconds and deliver the kind of output that more than life.
The LG G3 offers a classic metallic boast with lighter weight that adds comfort while carrying around. LG has even intuitively refined its signature rear key and the floating arc design to make the sides of device much thinner.
With the LG G3 now in your pocket, you can also make use of the Android Wear-based LG G Watch to maintain your life seamlessly. The G Watch's brilliant display, design and long battery life make it easily comfortable to wear. You can also match your style with a choice of colors including Black Titan and White Gold.
