Don’t you just love the Internet? A premium smartphone is expected to be announced in a little under two weeks and we already know how it looks. Courtesy of an anonymous tipster, a new set of images portraying the LG G3 in Gold and Titanium leaked out ahead of the phone’s announcement which is expected to take place on May 27th. The images give the impression of being legit and we have a feeling that they are official press renders.
LG G3 portrayed in Gold and Titanium
These are the best quality images that have surfaced so far but, to be honest, don’t reveal anything we haven’t seen before, though in a much greater detail. The LG G3’s back looks like brushed metal, however, we can’t rule out the possibility that the panel is made of plastic instead of aluminum. The images once again confirm rear-mounted and redesigned buttons with textured surface. The buttons are flat and almost level with the back panel, unlike the LG G2 which has much more protruding keys.
Above the keys is the main camera and right next to it sits LED flash. On the opposite side of the camera is a mysterious sensor of the same shape and size as the flash. Rumor has it that it could be some sort of a laser, though we can’t really imagine what its purpose might be. More likely assumption would be that it’s in fact IR transceiver. Near the bottom edge is a small slit that could be a rear speaker or another type of sensor.
Moving to the front, we are stricken by how thin the bezels are, and not just those on the sides but top and bottom as well. Assuming that the LG G3 will indeed look like the device showed in the renders, it will have impressively high screen to overall size ratio.
If the rumors pan out, one of the main selling points of the G3 will be its huge 5.5-inch display with 2560 x 1440 resolution. The phone is also expected to pack a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization and dual-tone LED flash. The G3 will be available in at least three color options, at least in the beginning, including white, grey and gold.
