The LG G3 is one of the worst kept secrets of recent weeks. Hardly a day goes by without a new leak making its way to the web so at this point there’s very little that we don’t know about the phone. On May 27th LG will hold an event during which the new flagship will be unveiled, however, after today’s massive leak it will be just a formality. To say that it was a leak is a huge understatement. In fact, LG itself revealed the highly anticipated LG G3’s specifications in full at a pre-announcement event with one of Korean retailers.
LG G3’s specs fully uncovered – Here is what to expect from the new flagship.
All previous leaks and rumors regarding the phone’s design and hardware appear to be spot-on. The LG G3 does have a 5.5-inch display with QHD (1440 x 2560) at awesome 538 ppi, just as earlier reports claimed it would. With such screen you would expect a huge device, but with measurements of 5.72 x 2.94 x 0.35 inch (145.3 x 74.6 x 8.9 mm) the G3 is in fact pretty compact, for a phablet anyway. For comparison, the Sony Xperia Z2 is almost the same in size but offers ‘only’ a 5.2-inch display.
The new LG G3 is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3 GB of RAM and offers 32 GB of internal memory, most likely non-expandable since microSD support wasn’t mentioned. The presentation focused on Korea-bound model only, so there’s still a chance that international version will offer different storage options.
As rumored before, the G3 sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with dual flash, fast auto-focus and optical image stabilization. It turns out that the mysterious sensor located right next to the camera is a laser after all. Apparently, it will deliver fast focus in low-light conditions. Above the screen sits a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera with “enhanced selfie mode.” Other features include LTE-Advanced, USB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a 3,000 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat.
It’s hard to imagine what else is there to say about the LG G3, as the phone doesn’t appear to have any more secrets. Anyway, LG’s event is scheduled for next Tuesday, so check back with us to find out if the company still has some aces up its sleeve or will just confirm what we already know.
