Specs, release date and more for the LG G3
And here it is, folks. The LG G3 — the latest in a line that began with the Optimus G (the "Optimus" name was retired with the G2, as you'll recall) and now continues with what you see here. Following some pretty extensive (but not all-inclusive) leaks, LG unveiled the G3 today in both London and New York with a huge level of hype.
The G3 is every bit as brash as expected, with a 5.5-inch QHD — as in upper-case Quad HD — IPS display 2560x1440 resolution, for a whopping 538 pixels per inch. You've not seen this in a smartphone before. It's powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 802 processor at up to 2.5 GHz.
You'll be able to get one with either 16 or 32 gigabytes of on-board storage. Plus it takes up to a 128GB microSD card. You'll find it with either 2GB or 3GB of RAM as well. For power, you've got a removable 3,000 mAh battery.
The G3 is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It'll be available in black, white, gold, violet and red.
