LG’s excited about the upcoming announcement of its 2014 flagship smartphone, the LG G3, and the company’s wasted no time spilling details about the new phone. We’ve seen pictures and heard detail rumors, but LG’s site in the Netherlands has finally given us some major pieces of the puzzle that will help us put the upcoming presentation into perspective.
The LG Netherlands site shows us the G3’s stunning 2,560 x 1,440 (2K) screen resolution – which we’ve heard about before. LG’s G3 will be the first smartphone to arrive on the market packed with its gorgeous display, and Samsung Electronics looks to release a GS5 Prime later this summer to rival LG’s smartphone. LG’s G2 was the first smartphone to arrive on the worldwide market with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor as well. The G2 smartphone set some trends, and LG’s back to continue its trend-setting tradition with a phone that many have deemed to be a “beast” when it comes to paper specs.
The LG G3 will feature a 5.5-inch display, up from the G2’s 5.2-inch display. This was leaked in the news several days ago, in the same way that the 2K resolution was also leaked (as was the 13MP camera). If you’ll remember, LG’s G2 camera was a 13MP camera with optical image stabilization (OIS), so LG doesn’t look to increase its megapixel count with the G3. We heard that LG would provide 3GB of RAM in the LG G3, but the Netherlands site tells us that only 2GB of RAM will be provided in the G3. We also heard that the starting memory storage out of the box would be 32GB, but it seems that LG has decided on 16GB for the G3. The 2GB of RAM in the G3 places the smartphone right on par with LG’s G2 smartphone from 2013 along with the Galaxy S5, as does the 16GB of onboard storage. LG’s G2 also had a 3,000mAh battery, and we’ve heard that LG will retain the same battery size in the LG G3.
LG’s G3 looks to compete with other smartphones of 2014, but we’re still interested in hearing what the company has to say. What about you? Does this peak your interest in the LG G3, or has LG spoiled its own surprise? Let us know what you think in the comments.
