LG G3 release date tipped for May 17


LG is reportedly preparing its next flagship phone to be introduced on the market in the coming months. And it should be the successor to the G2 model, the G3, which will be unveiled officially in mid-May, more precisely May 17th.

The Korean media reported that not only Samsung was working on a new device, the much-anticipated Galaxy S5, but also South Korean competitor, LG is all set to reveal the successor of G2.

The specs sheet is not yet complete but leaked. As per previous reports, the G3 will sport a 5.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Camera wise, a 16-megapixel rear sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) will be fitted on the back.

It’s likely powered by an eight-core Cortex A-50 64-bit processor rather the much-common, but yet powerful Qualcomm’s Snapdragon solution. Indeed the processor with 64-bit instruction set will put the G3 on par with the iPhone 5S.


The G3 predecessor is a great smartphone, equipped with several innovations, but failed to meet the sales expectations. It should be noted that the G2 was announced in August 2013 and then didn’t even have six months of life. Therefore, an official announcement is likely by the end of spring.

Although, LG is still mum on the matter and didn’t make any comment on the rumors, coming from “industry sources,” who preferred to remain anonymous. If the rumor proves to be true, you may see an improved smartphone terminal from all different points of view, especially in hardware.
