New pictures and details on LG’s soon-to-be announced flagship LG G3 smartphone have been leaked today by GSM Arena and Seeko, a Korean technology site.
Based on the leaked images, the front of the device features a very thin bezel with the phone’s glass (presumably Gorilla Glass) covering most of the front and, like the LG G2, will have no physical buttons. The first image also shows the phone’s 3.5mm audio jack and microUSB port. The second picture, showing the rear of the LG G3, shows that the new device will be covered in what looks to be glossy plastic. Also found on the back of the phone are the rear camera, a flash, a small rear speaker, and the innovative back-mounted keys previously found on the LG G2 but sporting a new rounder look. There’s also what seems to be a secondary flash or sensor on of the rear camera but information on it has been released. According to the leak, while the LG G3 will be bigger than the LG G2, it will be thinner than LG’s previous flagship.
The leak also confirmed that the LG G3 will feature a 5.5″ QHD display with a screen resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels which gives the phone’s display a pixel density of 534ppi. It was also leaked that the G3 will come in two different storage and RAM variants – a 16GB version with 2GB of RAM and a 32GB version with 3GB of RAM. Both units will feature expandable storage via a microSD card slot. The rear camera of the LG G3 will be a 13-megapixel shooter with the same OIS+ image stabilization technology found on the recently launched LG G Pro 2. The LG G2 will be powered by a 3000mAh battery and the aforementioned rear speaker is will deliver 1W of output.
It was previously leaked that the LG G3 will feature a newly designed interface with a flat design and bright icons. Other design changes include a new notification drawer with round shortcut icons for activating/deactivating, among other things, WiFi, Bluetooth, and NFC.
LG is expected to officially reveal and announce the LG G3 in a global event happening in six different cities around the world. The company is also expected to announce the LG G Watch, the company’s first Android Wear-powered smartwatch which is expected to come out sometime in June.
