LG G3 will pack laser autofocus and take punch activated selfies

Whlg-g3 laser focusilst most things are already known about LG’s upcoming G3 smartphone, it’s even already on the LG site, the folks over at The Verge have managed to squeeze out some more details.

The Verge has reported that the new LG G3’s camera will feature a laser autofocus system.

Just as HTC’s One (M8) sports a second camera sensor, the laser on the G3 will detect the depth of the subject you want to photograph and help minimise the time it takes to go from tapping the digital shutter to capturing the photo.

This translates, apparently, to greater precision and speed, the same reasons why lasers are used in desktop mice.

Fast and reliable autofocus is a signature part of the iPhone’s universal appeal as a cameraphone and, no doubt the iPhone 5S will continue this boast.

Raise your fist and selfie

The rear camera on the G3 will have a 13-megapixel sensor while the front-facing camera will provide 2.1-megapixel images.

Embracing the current trend of the more narcissistic amongst us for taking selfies, LG is also going to introduce new gesture recognition that will have the G3 take a selfie when you clench your fist in front of it.

The official specs of the LG G3 will finally be divulged by at its launch event in London on Tuesday.
