It’s generally accepted that the LG G3 will push the boat out in terms of specs, but there’s been somewhat of a question mark over the processor.
US Network Sprint listed the phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, countless other sources have mentioned the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, but here we’re told the LG G3 will be one of the first phones with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805.
Incredibly, the Snapdragon 805 was first unveiled way back in November 2013, but to be fair to Qualcomm, it always said the chip would make its debut in “the first half of 2014”, the obvious inference being that it’d likely be Q2.
Other LG G3 specs relayed by the Greeks at techmaniacs include 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), a 5.5in QHD display (2560 x 1440), and a meaty 3,200mAh battery with enhanced power management.
As for the LG G3’s camera, it supposedly adopts the same 13MP Sony IMX124 Exmor RS sensor as the spanking new OnePlus One, with optical image stabilisation on board.
The LG G3 launch is officially scheduled for May 27 – just under three weeks from now. It’ll likely be followed by the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime; surely you didn’t expect Samsung to sit back and let LG have all the QHD, Snapdragon 805 fun?
