Source: LG G3 will be powered by Snapdragon 801, 3GB RAM, 5.5inch QHD display
Even before the calender turned into 2014, we have started witnessing speculations about the specs of LG’s upcoming flagship LG G3. Finally today we got the confirmed news about the LG G3 CPU from one of reliable sources. The source also confirms the screen size, screen resolution, camera and few more details.
Rumours were strong whether it’s coming with Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or Snapdragon 805. Our source confirmed its powered by Snapdragon 801 and LG G3 will be available to hit the store shelves by June end.
It also confirmed that LG G3 will be coming with largely rumored 5.5″ IPS display with QHD (2540×1440) resolution which we have seen earlier with AnTuTu benchmark. So LG will be the first top-brand to launch a Smartphone with such huge resolution along with 534ppi.
From the official teaser we came to know about the dual Flash on the left side of the camera, but the source was unable to clarify the feature of sensor placing right side of the camera. A 13 MP Exmor R (Sony Lens) camera with OIS+ technology will take the imaging part to the next level.
There is a confusion about the actual material of the device – few blogs are saying it’s metal, few are saying it’s some artificial material – looks like metal coated on polycarbonate. When we asked our source, we got metal as the answer. So finally we will see something apart from cheap plastic body Smartphone from LG.
As far as RAM is concerned – LG G3 will have a 3GB of RAM along with 32GB on-board memory with 64GB expansion option via MicroSD card (not clarify whether it supports 128GB like Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC M8). Most possibly the international version will only have 16GB mass memory with the expansion option much similar to LG G Pro 2.
Obviously LG will launch this flagship with Android KitKat (4.4.2) clubbed with their refreshed Optimus UI. Though there isn’t much news we have now about the User Interface (UI) or User Xperience (UX); the leaked image of UI shows a letter ‘G’ on the home screen, leaving us only speculation what that possibly could be. LG’s own KNOCK code will be added also.
As the teaser shows, LG G3 will also carry the heritage of LG G2 with rear-mounted volume keys along with power button. The front speaker looks like little big than the ordinary hearing speaker, thus we can speculate that LG is going to follow HTC’s front speaker design in the upcoming flagship – LG G3. The video also shows the rear audio speaker popping out the dust with the vibration of the music – gives us a hint that this could be dust resistance too. We already have spotted many hints which LG is trying to showcase via their first official teaser, you can read the hints here.
One more major change we will see in the LG G3 is the change of the shape of LG’s Quick Window. Earlier with LG G2, it was rectangular, where we have clearly spotted that with LG G3 it’s in circular shape with some kind of light notification option. The source continues, LG has added more features to their Quick Window.
For the rest of the specification, we have to wait till 27th May. We will cover that even LIVE on this blog, so bookmark this page and follow us on Facebook and @LGMobileIndia – on Twitter to get the latest news about LG G3.
