LG G3 backside

The LG G3 has been leaked to the point where we're wondering if LG will have anything left to surprise us when the finally and formally unveil it. So imagine our surprise when the LG G3 slipped through the FCC with a confidentiality letter hiding any photos of the device undergoing testing. What, not more photos? Nope, just radios and FCC labels.

The LG G3 has indeed stopped by the FCC, masquerading under the model number of LG-D850. What's the FCC have to tell us about the G3 that we haven't learned already? Nothing terribly surprising, it would seem.

  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850Mhz, 1900Mhz
  • UMTS 850Mhz, 1750Mhz, 1900Mhz
  • LTE Band 2 (PCS), 4 (AWS), 5, 7, 17

LG G3 label

The LG G3 also has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, in case you weren't expecting that either. And a battery.

We've seen the front, top, bottom, front, and back, up close with the buttons, and more. Surely there's more the the LG G3 than what we've seen, but for now… that's all we've got. What are you looking forward to for the LG G3?

801 or 805....that's what I want to know.

fgcchevy says:

+1 that's what I want to know also. If its 801, might go with m8 prime.

You're really going to buy a phone based on the processor it has? Even with the 801, the G3 is the clear winner.

barondebxl says:

I don't see LG putting an 801. Most likely an 805.

I would like to get a confirmation of which snapdragon they are going to use.

figueroaw says:

Honestly, it doesn't matter what snapdragon will have. 808/810 is around the corner.

cjbrigol says:

And then when the 808 and 810 are about to be out the 812/820 will be right around the corner. And then the 840. Then the 900. I guess I just won't buy any phones.

I heard it'll be the 92034. I mean, we all need more processing power than the Space Station right?

We probably already do.

Yes. I hope more flagship go this direction of water/dust resistance. Would be really nice.

Removable battery is important to me. Has this been confirmed?

Posted via Android Central App

yubeie says:

Looking for the same!

erwaso says:

Nothing confirmed, but a leaked picture shows it removed

rebretz000 says:

I really like the idea of a removable battery again. I hope the battery is bigger than 3000 MaH though.

jcpicard says:

Hoping for removable but if G3 battery life is similar to that of G2 I will be good. G2 battery life was tremendous in my experience.

So no laser I mean wouldn't that have to go through for approval we still don't know what that other deal is on the back of the phone.

Does the FCC ever stop anything? We always hear of phones going through the FCC, but we never hear about phones that are held up there.

I'm interested in this question too.

Ip67 should be a standard for flag ships. I don't want to sorry about my phone getting ruined by water because it rains so often here. I will gladly get the g3 if it is and if it will offer 64bit. If not I'll just wait for the note 4.

Brian Rendon says:

Either 801 or 805. I think 805 cuz lg g2 was a beast phone when it came out to murder the s4 and HTC one. So it may do it again to murder the prime version of s5 and m8

G2 is still a beast phone.

The G2-802 Unlocked 16GB for $359.99 with (No-Warranty)
Is something I would consider a fair investment.

Own a lot of guns there buddy?

You have to do it between your buttcheeks.

Now only if they would pull a HTC and have it available the day of launch

barondebxl says:

That would be so awesome. I'm so ready. M8 is meh, S5 is just ok so this is it.

Posted via Android Central App

I wonder what people will say when they see that the phone has a plastic faux metal appearance. I'm waiting to see that M8 prime and the Moto X+1. I'm sick of LG locked bootloader.

barondebxl says:

I would prefer that over the heavier, scratch magnet metal.

Mnmiah says:

I hope g3 doesn't have heating issues like g2, sd card is a must for me and hope still is the same size as the g2

barondebxl says:

You should probably start looking somewhere else then
