We’re big fans of the LG G3, but it looks like the South Korean company is gearing up to release an even bigger handset before the end of the year. The LG Liger leaked out today in a series of hands-on photos and benchmarks revealing a ton of information on what appears to be a massive mid-range phone.
Based on today’s leak, we know the LG Liger will come equipped with a 5.9-inch 1080p display, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 3000mAh battery and Android 4.4.4 out of the box. The device also runs on LG’s own Odin processor, which packs eight cores but clocks in at just 1.2GHz. Overall, it looks like the Liger will be a significant step down from the G3, even if it does offer a significantly larger screen.
From a design perspective, the LG Liger looks pretty similar to the G3, though its bezels may be a bit thicker due to the phone’s massive size. Around back, you find the same rear panel buttons, which LG seems intent on keeping in its design language. We actually don’t hate them, and they definitely make for a sleeker overall profile.
There’s no word on when the Liger will launch, though from the looks of it this phone is pretty much ready to make its debut. Of course, there’s no guarantee LG will release this mid-range phablet for the U.S. market. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the device restricted to South Korea and other parts of Asia, though we’ll have more info on the Liger as soon as it’s official.
