With flagships from HTC and Samsung out of the way we now looks towards LG. The company has been relatively quiet during the first few months of 2014. So far it hasn’t said much about its next flagship which will presumably be called the LG G3. Last week we exclusively reported that it is going to have a 2K display, LG later confirmed the report. It is now being said that the next flagship will be launched “in a golden hue” this summer. A purported picture of its retail packaging has also appeared online.
Yesterday we picked up on a leaked press shot of the LG isai. This smartphone is believed to be the Japanese variant of LG G3. The Verge hears that this bears a “familial” resemblance to the upcoming flagship, meaning the G3 may have ultra slim front bezels as well. The isai is labelled as LGL24, its positioned perfectly to be the LGL22’s successor, which was a modified variant of the G2 released in Japan.
One of the main attractions of LG’s upcoming flagship will undoubtedly be its display. It was rumored that both HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5 will come with 2K displays, but they don’t, they stuck with full HD 1080p displays. LG may very well become the first major Android vendor to put 2,560×1,440 pixel resolution in your pocket. When contacted by the scribe, LG declined to comment.
