Space year 2013AD saw a shedload of smartphone flagships with 1080p displays touching down, including – in no particular order – the Samsung Galaxy S4, HTC One, Sony Xperia Z and LG G2.
As phone fans tirelessly debate the merits of 1080p resolutions on relatively small displays (or lack thereof), the industry’s forward charge continues unabated, with 2014 threatening to deliver countless 2K (2560 x 1440) smartphone flagships. Unsurprisingly, the LG G3 is tipped to be among them.
With the LG Optimus G and LG G2 touching down in 2012 and 2013 respectively, it stands to reason that 2014 will introduce – you guessed it – the LG G3.
Of course, we’ve only just met the LG G2, and as such the LG G3 isn’t expected until the second half of 2014. By that point, all smartphone flagships will inevitably have 2K displays. Incidentally, that's 3.7 MILLION pixels. Where will it end?
For what it's worth, other rumoured LG G3 specs include a 16MP rear camera, and some sort of eight-core processor. It remains to be seen if the LG G3 will – like the LG G2 – shove its volume buttons on the rear.
