Just yesterday LG posted yet another teaser for its new flagship smartphone, the LG G3, that suggest it will offer a metal body, optical image stabilization (OIS), and re-designed buttons on the back panel. Now, thanks to three images published by PhoneArena on Wednesday, we have the best look at the device so far, with views of both the front face and the back of the G3.
Unfortunately, even though LG’s teaser video seemed to show a metalworking machine, like a miller, forming the device, these images suggest that the finish merely looks like metal. Each of the three images appear to show a plastic device with a brushed metal effect on the back, though we’re not positive that metal hasn’t been used.
Also, we love how the gold color is carried over into the earpiece, similar to how the colors are the red and white Nexus 5 units appear in that area. The alleged 5.5-inch Quad HD display also appears to run nearly edge-to-edge, providing an almost bezel-less display. We still have no idea what the extra sensor on the back of the phone is for, though one rumor suggested it will help shoot better low-light photos.
LG’s event kicks off on May 27 and we’ll be reporting live in person to bring you all of the details as soon as the G3 is unveiled. For now, though, this is probably the best look at the phone we’ve had so far.
