I Want This Gold LG G3 Right Now

by Todd Haselton | May 8, 2014

The LG G3 has been leaked nearly as often as the HTC One (M8), so we’re already pretty certain we know what the device is going to look like. One leaked render showed the phone in black, another revealed a white version, yet another showed what appeared to be a brushed aluminum design, and now GSM Arena has photos of a gold model.

It’s common for phone makers to release several colors of the same device, though sometimes one color is reserved as an exclusive to specific global regions, or specific carriers. The tipsters who submitted the photo to GSM Arena said that LG will focus on the phone’s camera when it’s announced on May 27, a date LG has already confirmed. The device reportedly packs a 13-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS), which has allowed LG’s most recent flagship smartphones to capture some of the best images possible on a mobile device today.

The tipster who submitted the photos said that the strange area on the back of the phone, which looked like either an oddly placed fingerprint reader or IR blaster, is “a laser beam that is intended to help the camera produce better night shots,” according to GSM Arena. We’re not quite sure how that works, or if it’s even true.

Earlier today LG confirmed that the G3 will pack its quad HD 2560 x 1440-pixel display, so that’s obviously going to be another highlight feature, and it’s one that LG’s closest competitors don’t yet offer. Other features reportedly include 32GB of expandable storage, a 3,000mAh battery, 3GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 801 processor.

Check out the gold model in the gallery above, and so you have some context we’ve also included some of the other colors that have leaked.
