With the Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2 all now very much a reality, it’s LG’s turn to wow us with its latest flagship-flavoured delight.
Rumours suggest the LG G2’s successor will launch as early as May (i.e. next month), and in the meantime, US network Sprint appears to have leaked a comprehensive list of LG G3 specs.
Credit goes to My LG Cell Phones, which spotted a user agent profile (UAP) for a new phone with model number LG-LS990 on Sprint’s official site. The accompanying specs appear to match those previously rumoured for the LG G3.
There are a couple of fairly major things to note here, the first being the presence of a QHD display (2560 x 1440) on the LG G3, which of course pips the aforementioned flagships (all three being 1920 x 1080).
LG G3 specs also supposedly include 3GB of RAM, matching the Sony Xperia Z2, and besting the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8 (both of which have 2GB of RAM).
Other LG G3 specs listed include a 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front camera, 32GB internal storage (augmentable via microSD), and KitKat Android 4.4.
Somewhat surprisingly, the LG G3 will supposedly come with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, a step down from the faster Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 found on Samsung, Sony and HTC’s latest flagships.
The LG G2 is of course only seven months old, but the story goes that LG doesn’t want to leave the Samsung Galaxy S5 unchallenged (er, no offense HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z2). May 17 is the date to mark in your diary, supposedly.
A more recent rumour threw June into the mix for the LG G3 launch date, but in either case, it shouldn't be too long till we hear the full story.
