LG G3 landing in May with Quad HD screen and 8-core processor

lg g3 releaseThe LG G2 garnered many accolades last year and with the Samsung Galaxy S5 on the horizon it looks like LG are going to take the fight to Sammy – their main smartphone weapon will be called the G3.

According to Korean site Asia Economic, the LG G3 will sport a pixel-packed 2560×1440 Quad HD (QHD) screen, matching the equally pixel-laden screens of next-gen superphones like the aforementioned Samsung Galaxy S5 and Sony Xperia Z2.

The screen will also be slightly larger than the G2’s current 5.2-inch offering, measuring in at 5.5-inches, and the new G is expected to carry a 16MP camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS).

Past rumours have suggested that the LG G3 will be powered by LG’s own octa-core Odin processor, consisting of four 2.2GHz Cortex-A15 cores and another four 1.7GHz Cortex-A7 cores for less demanding tasks.

The LG G3 is reportedly marked down for a May 17th release date, shortening the LG upgrade cycle. This could well suggest that it doesn’t want the Galaxy S5 to have so much of a head start this time around.

LG G Pro 2

The G3 will probably buddy up with the G Pro 2 which is also waiting in the wings.

This LG phablet will be rocking a gigantic 5.9-inch QHD display and a spec list which appears to be mostly wishes rather than confirmed.

There’s a fair chance that all will be revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.
