LG confirms 2014 release for G Flex 2 and Vu 4

Flexible display

There's a successor to the LG G Flex and the LG Vu 3 coming down the pike for the second half of 2014. The LG G Flex was one of the more interesting devices of 2014. It, along with the Samsung Galaxy Round, was one of the first true curved screen smartphones released, and it lived up to its name by actually being flexible. If you were wondering where LG might go with the Flex line now that they've formally unveiled the LG G3, well, we don't know that. But we can tell you that it and an LG Vu 4 are coming later this year.

So, how much bigger is the LG G3 compared to the LG G2?

So, how much bigger is the LG G3 compared to the LG G2?

LG G3 and G2

Numbers only tell part of the story when it comes to how big a phone actually is – excuse the cliche but it also comes down to how it feels in the hand. The LG G2 packed a 5.2-inch Full HD display into a frame that would often be found paired with much smaller display sizes through a mixture of unique design and possibly a little witchcraft. Now the LG G3 is here, have the LG boffins done it again? Sure, the display size has gone up, but how much bigger has the phone got?

LG improves upon last years QuickWindow case with a circle and better functionality

Much like its predecessor, the G2, LG's new top-of-the-line G3 comes with a special, windowed case. This time out they're calling it the QuickCircle and functionality is certainly improved in this years model. As the name implies, the window this time around has become a circle, and it's a circle that has its uses.

As before you get a variety of different clock faces to display when you close the case, some analog, some digital, and there's still the option to have the current weather conditions, too. You can still activate the window by double-tapping on the display and a swipe across in this years model opens up a whole host of things to do.

LG's brand new Android flagship puts an enormous, insanely sharp display in the palm of your hand

It was only a matter of time. The implacable march of smartphone progress has brought us a handset with more pixels than most HDTVs. The LG G3, LG's much-leaked follow-up to last year's G2, was announced today at events in London, New York and San Francisco. It's a phone which pushes the boundaries of smartphone screen size and resolution, while building on other areas of the G2's hardware.

LG joins a high-end Android market overflowing with strong competitors from the likes of HTC, Sony and local rival Samsung, but the Korean manufacturer will be hoping the G3's stand-out feature — that ridiculously large, super-high-res display — will turn heads when the phone launches this summer.

So now that we have the G3 in our hands, does it shape up? Head past the break for hands-on video, photos and our first impressions.

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 LG G3 is naturally a step forward in terms of specs and design from that of the G2, with a few neat features thrown in. We're looking at a 5.5-inch QHD (that's Quad HD, 2560 x 1440) display producing 538ppi, 3GB of RAM, 3000mAh battery, 16/32GB of storage and a 13MP OIS+ camera with a new "laser" focusing mode. On the design side, LG is claiming that the new arc design and metallic finish make the G3 easier to hold, even with the increased screen size.
