LG reportedly held a secret pre-event event in Korea that detailed its upcoming G3 flagship and—no surprise—information from that meeting has leaked out. One of the attendees surreptitiously snapped photos of some of LG’s presentation, including a look at the device’s specs, design and more. As expected, the G3 will sport a 5.5-inch Quad HD display (538 ppi), though it’s essentially the same size as HTC’s recent One (M8); the M8, for context, has a 5-inch screen.
According to the document, the LG G3 will sport Android 4.4 out of the box, 3000mAh battery, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE and LTE-A, 13-megapixel camera with OIS, Qualcomm Snapdragon 802, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Much of the emphasis here is put on the screen; it appears LG compares the resolution of its G3 to Samsung’s Galaxy S5, which hands-down has the best smartphone display on the market. The slide also mentions black, white and gold variations, which we’ve seen on numerous occasions already.
In terms of features, LG also touts some improvements coming to the G3’s camera, including that laser autofocus sensor we’ve been hearing about. The slide doesn’t explicitly say what kind of sensor is included in the G3, though the rough translation essentially talks about a feature for “speedy anti-shake/blur that focuses quickly.” The slide compares its “G3 autofocus” to “standard autofocus,” obviously saying that its new method is superior.
As for the Selfie Mode in the final slide, you can apparently execute the mode by holding your palm facing toward the camera, like you’re waving, and then making a fist. It’s difficult to tell exactly how the mode works without LG’s explanation, though that’s the gist of the text when translated.
The G3 is shaping up to be a true contender, and even more advanced than the Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8). Of course, that’s probably why we’ve been hearing so much about Prime versions of these flagships coming relatively soon—Samsung and HTC would probably say that was their plan all along.
