LG G3 spec

It’s official and I can now release the confirmed specifications and features of the LG G3.

Most of the leaks and rumours that we heard about appear to have been largely accurate but the biggest surprise has been the sheer number of innovations that will have you itching to have a go!

But first, here are the LG G3 basics:

  • Display - The near zero bezel delivers an edge-to-edge viewing experience via a 5.5" Quad HD Display with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution. This quite amazingly works out at 538ppi, which is commonly used to print high-quality gallery art-books.
  • Design - The design matches the high-quality craftsmanship we would expect and includes a light weight metallic finish. A trio of colours will be available and these include black, white and gold.
  • Camera - A 13 megapixel camera is present as expected, but HOLD ON, the optical image stabilisation is assisted by a Laser Auto Focus that instantly measures the distance to the object for the perfect focus. A dual LED flash that emits two different light colours also helps produce more natural colour toned result in low-light scenarios.
  • OS - Android v4.4 KitKat powered by a 2.46 GHz quad-core processor and 2GB RAM.

LG G3 features and innovations

Okay, so some of these we have seen announced on various LG smartphones but the LG G3 puts them all together along with a few new ones to offer an incredible experience.

The first thing to notice is that the screen is less cluttered with fewer apps, achieved by merging apps with similar functions.

Fewer apps for a less cluttered look

Keeping your mobile phone up to date is easy with Smart Notice prompts that recommend actions before you need them such as "Would you like to erase the 5 apps you haven't used in the last 2 months?".

A 1-Watt speaker with amp boost for playing deep low and clear high-pitched sounds without the need for additional speakers will simply blow music lovers (and HTC BoomSound users) away!

Knock Codes, which we have seen recently on other LG phones, use patterns to wake up and unlock the phone at once with the security of 80,000 possible combinations

Speedier and more accurate typing with a size adjustable virtual keypad with word completion, Quick Move and Quick Correction is also included and set to delight users of all finger sizes!
