Tucked away in today's LG Q1 2014 financial results is confirmation of the branding for its upcoming flagship phone, the G3, along with hints of a launch before the end of June. From today's press release —
Higher revenues are expected in the second quarter with the release of the flagship LG G3 smartphone and wider roll-out of the mass-tier L Series III.
While the G3 name isn't exactly top-secret after a recent spate of online leaks, the Q2 launch window indicates that the company's next high-end smartphone could drop before the end of June. So what are we expecting from the G3? How about redesigned back buttons, a new, flatter UI, a crazy new 1440p display and maybe even a homegrown LG processor.
Interestingly, a late-Q2 arrival would pit the G3 against Samsung's rival 2K-resolution monster, "Project KQ," better known to tech followers as the "Galaxy S5 Prime." That device was recently tipped for a June launch in the Korean press.
