Korea Is Getting An Even Beefier LG G3

The LG G3, which is just barely rolling out here in the U.S., might soon get a Prime version overseas. According to an advertisement, the device will feature a Snapdragon 805 processor—that will allow it to connect to high-speed data networks. The device will seemingly be dubbed LG G3 Cat. 6; the device is already up for pre-order in the Korean market.

That’s about all the changes to expect, and a little strange that it wasn’t the version released all along. But here it comes nonetheless. The “normal” G3, the one we reviewed earlier, sports a Snapdragon 801 processor and is capable of connecting to LTE-A networks; that allows for speeds up to 150Mbps. The Cat.6 version, meanwhile, should be capable of getting speeds of up to 300Mbps. I think I get download speeds of 20Mbps down, max.

It sounds like this device isn’t expected to hit shelves anytime soon, and a price isn’t known at this point. However, for those of you over in Korea, it sure looks like you’ll be able to get a more beefed up G3 in the future with the same Quad HD display and beautiful design we loved so much in our review.
