GSMArena has obtained new photos of an alleged LG G3 smartphone in gold that reveal all about the design of the upcoming flagship.
Sources over at GSMArena have released new photos of an alleged gold colored LG G3 smartphone along with more “confirmed specs,” giving even more insight for what to expect from the upcoming flagship later this month. So far, we have seen the LG G3 in white and grey along with a leaked photo by @evleaks that suggests there could be a brushed metal finish in the works.
Looking at the photos you will immediately notice ultra-thin bezels surrounding the 5.5-inch display which was just recently certified as QHD by NEMKO, the Norway-based international testing and certification organization for electrical products, and confirmed to have a resolution of 2560 x 1440 which is four times the resolution of HD panels and 1.8 times higher than Full HD displays, producing a pixel density of 534ppi and meeting the 100% RGB color reproduction standard.
On the rear of the phone we see that LG has redesigned its volume keys and Power/Lock configuration and its looks more premium than the initial version found on the LG G2, G2 mini and G Pro 2. Sources from GSMArena say the 13MP OIS+ main camera and its features are going to be one of the highlights of the phone.
We also now have more insight into that mystery sensor that was originally thought to be a second LED or IR blaster located on the left of the camera – sources say it’s a laser beam that is intended to help the camera produce better night shots. It is unclear how exactly this technology will be used on the G3.
In addition to the feature-rich rear camera, the front camera will have some nice features of its own like gesture controls which allow you to take a selfie by clapping your hands or by twisting your finger. It also supports voice commands and words like “cheese”, “chica”, and “whisky” will trigger the camera to take a photo.
Rumors also indicate the phone may have a water-resistance rating of IPX7. Under the hood we are currently expecting a Snapdragon 801 SoC with 3GB of RAM and 32GB internal memory, all powered by a 3,000mAh battery.
Packaging for the gold LG G3 first surfaced in leaked photos late last month. The latest flagship smartphone from LG is set to be officially announced on May 27 as part of a two-day worldwide event. Stay tuned.
