LG G3 name confirmed as LG targets Q2 release for new flagship

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.
