Mystery G3 Sensor Said to Improve Camera

The LG G3 is just a few weeks away, and although we already know pretty much everything about the flagship handset at this point one big mystery remains. We’re still not sure what that extra sensor on the back of the device will do, though recent reports suggest it could be related to the G3’s camera.

According to @evleaks, who also released three new press image of the device on Thursday, the G3’s extra sensor is actually a “laser auto focus.” What does that actually mean? We’re guessing LG’s new phone will be able to auto-focus extremely fast once you boot up the camera app. A separate GSMArena report from earlier this month claimed the laser sensor could “help the camera produce better night shots.” Either way it looks like LG’s new smartphone will feature some interesting new camera tricks.

Based on previous leaks, we pretty much know what to expect from the LG G3. The upcoming smartphone is set to offer a 5.5-inch quad HD 2560 x 1440-pixel display, a 3000mAh battery, 32GB of storage with microSD support, 3GB of RAM and a Snapdragon 801 processor. We’re also counting on Android 4.4 KitKat with a revamped version of LG’s custom software on top.

LG is set to announce the G3 later this month at a worldwide event on May 27TechnoBuffalo will be covering the news live from New York, though at this rate there’s sure to be plenty more leaks between then and now.
