LG has been keeping uncharacteristically quiet this year, leaving rivals like Samsung, HTC and Sony to steal the limelight with the Galaxy S5, One M8 and Xperia Z2 respectively.
But we all know South Korea’s other favourite manufacturer is busy beavering away on the LG G3. While we await the official launch, the rumoured QHD resolution has supposedly been confirmed, and we’re also seeing the box in gold.
We’re perusing The Verge here, which relays the aforementioned golden LG G3 box. That almost certainly means the LG G3 itself will come in gold, much like the iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. Oh, and not forgetting the gold LG G2.
The Vergemen reached out to LG for confirmation, and while the South Koreans wouldn’t acknowledge the goldness, they did – oddly – confirm the rumoured 2560 x 1440 resolution.
That means LG will likely be the first big name to churn out a QHD smartphone (no offense to the Oppo Find 7, of course).
LG G3 specs were apparently confirmed by US network Sprint last week, and include 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front shooter, 32GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), and KitKat Android 4.4.
The LG G3 processor was listed as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, but we’d be surprised at anything less than the Snapdragon 801.
Although the LG G2 is just seven months old, rumours suggest the LG G3 launch will go down as soon as May or June, with the intention of casting a shadow on the Samsung Galaxy S5’s moment in the sun.
