The LG G2 was LG’s flagship smartphone for 2013 and given that the handset was relatively well-received, we can only assume that LG has a successor planned. Given that the phone was released in September 2013, we expect that LG will only release it in September 2014, but as it turns out, May 17th is a possible date. This is according to reports from the Korean media who has outed a very specific release date of May 17th. Assuming this is true, there is a good chance that LG might announce the device during MWC 2014, or maybe a little later closer to its rumored May 17th date.
As far as the specs are concerned, it looks like the LG G3 will compete with the Galaxy S5 in terms of display and pack a 2,560×1,440 resolution. As far as display size is concerned, it could feature a 5.5” display which would make its pixel density pretty high. As for its camera, it could feature a 16MP sensor with optical image stabilization, and finally if the rumors are to be believed, the LG G3 might be powered by LG’s own Odin processor, versus turning to Qualcomm. For those wondering why LG is cutting its annual release cycle short, it seems that LG might be worried that taking an entire year would leave too much room for Samsung to gain on them.
In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Does the LG G3 sound like a phone you might be more interested in than the Samsung Galaxy S5?
