More LG G3 details emerge: gold, lasers and fake metal

More LG G3 details emerge: gold, lasers and fake metalSo Pantech didn't manage to get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor into the Vega Iron 2, which means the spotlight shifts to the LG G3 as potentially the first ever S805 smartphone to when it's announced at the end of the month.

But never mind that, as you can see from the fetching image to the left LG plans to release a version of its forthcoming range-topper in the currently fashionable colour of gold. 

At least, that's what we're told the colour is. To me it looks more of a “soft brown” if you know what I mean, but that's probably just down to less-than-perfect lighting conditions when the shots were taken.

And anyway, that's not the most important part of the story, as the anonymous tipster who provided the snaps to GSMArena also cleared up two of the bigger question marks remaining when it comes to LG's next flagship.

First of all, that “second flash” on the other side of the camera sensor isn't a flash at all but rather a laser beam that will supposedly help you take better night shots using the 13MP rear camera.

And second, the brushed aluminium finish we saw in images leaked by @evleaks recently isn't actually metal at all but just plastic made to look like metal. So that's that.

It means you'll just have to "make do" with that 5.5in 2560 x 1440 display, Snapdragon 805 processor (hopefully, otherwise an S801), 3GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, 3000mAh battery, weather-proofing, revamped Optimus UI, Android 4.4 KitKat and a whole lot more besides.

Roll on 27 May...
