There's a lot that's been leaked about the LG G3, but this one really takes the cake. It seems that somebody at LG Netherlands pushed the wrong button and accidentally published their full LG G3 product page. As of publishing time at least part of page was still surprisingly online, revealing the full specs and many of the new features we can expect to find in the LG G3. Our Dutch comrades were able to learn a bit more about the software that you'll find on the phone, so there's some new stuff you'll find after the break.
There's a lot we've already learned about the LG G3, so we'll recap that here. The screen is a big 5.5-inch number with an eye-popping 2560x1440 resolution. The updated user interface will be quite a bit flatter than before, in line with the updates made in recent iterations of Android. The official case will have an officially round hole. There will be a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 13 megapixel camera with optical stabilization, and a removable 3000mAh battery, at least if an internal LG presentation is correct. We even know its precise dimensions: 146.3mm tall, 74.7mm wide, and 8.9mm thick.
As for what's new, the leak from the Netherlands contradicts the earlier leak, stating that there will be 2GB of RAM (instead of 3GB) and 16GB for storage (earlier it was 32GB). It's possible there could be multiple models with higher storage capacities, but differing amounts of RAM seems unlikely in our eyes.
Additionally, we've been wondering what might be behind the black shield on the other side of the camera lens from the flash, and though on the LG G Flex that's where the IR blaster resides, it seems we'll also find an autofocus laser behind there as well. The laser is presumably also infrared, which most smartphone camera sensors are capable of picking up but the human eye cannot see. The camera software has also been updated, taking on a "Touch & Shoot" mode that removes unnecessary controls from the interface — not quite as simplified as the camera interface of the Moto X, but still an improvement.
Software-wise the leak revealed that LG's customizations will see you getting "tips based on the status of your phone, your behavior, and the locations where you are", which sounds a lot like Google Now to us. There's also a "Quick Circle" feature that will put your six most-used apps in a convenient circle (LG's got a thing for circles these days, eh?) and a revamped custom LG keyboard.
The LG G3 will be officially unveiled tomorrow, and we're sure there's more to learn — especially on the software front — so be sure to check back in then for all the latest.
