Straight from LG’s G3 press event in New York City comes their latest flagship device. A sleek looking, 5.5-inch, Quad HD 2560 x 1440 screen, with a ridiculous 538 pixel-per-inch stat, bolstered by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A Snapdragon quad-core chip provides up to 2.5GHz of processing power, with imaging on the back handled by a 12 megapixel sensor, coupled with — wait for it — laser autofocus.
Coupled with the excellent optical image stabilization that LG has had since the G2, the laser autofcous works similarly to the Duo camera in the HTC One M8, by understanding the criteria and environment being shot, lessening the amount it time it takes to capture the image.
Powering the G3 is a removeable 3,000 mAh battery with wireless charging support, eagerly consumed by the usual WiFi/Bluetooth/4G LTE radios. Android 4.4 KitKat and the Optimus UI layered on top is the OS of choice, and a 2.1 megapixel camera takes your precious selfies.
Aesthetically, LG has paid a great deal of attention to the appearance of their new flagship (unlike another South Korean major phone manufacturer), sporting a brushed metal body for the first time, in black, silver, and gold color variants. And yes, the volume rocker and power/sleep button are still on the backside.
As for availability: LG Mobile mentions that the G3 will be available in the U.S. sometimes this year, with the company’s home turf, South Korea, receiving the new device starting the 28th of May.
