LG Makes G3 Superphone Official With Press Invitation To NYC Event

Sometimes we wake up to little surprises in our inbox, such as this morning when we discovered an email from LG inviting us to a press event in New York City in a couple of weeks. Rather than play it coy and keep the unveiling cryptic, LG flat out says on the invitation that it's planning to unveil the oft-rumored and highly speculated G3 smartphone (more of a superphone, really).

In other words, the LG G3 is officially official, officially speaking. LG's forthcoming phone wasn't one of the best kept secrets on the Internet, anyway -- Sprint's web team essentially confirmed the existence of the G3 by posting a UA profile that contained a full spec sheet.

Bear in mind that things are subject to change, but if the specs revealed on Sprint's website turn out to be legit, the G3 will sport a 5.5-inch qHD display (2560x1440), which is about 530 pixels per inch. Compare that to Samsung's Galaxy S5, which features a 5.1-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) display at 432 pixels per inch.

Other specs include a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat from the outset.

It looks like it's going to be a very nice BIG phone - can't wait to see the review. Any mention of the battery being removable?

No offense but what makes this a "super" phone? A useless high resolution does not make it super. The CPU is most likely an 801 and not 800 but it won't be the first or only phone using that cpu and ghz wise there are already faster models out there (Oppo Find 7 is, GS5 etc are 2.5ghz), camera specs are standard with most offerings out now. The resolution and 3gb of ram seems to be the only thing setting this phone apart from most of the competition other than the GNote and Oppo Find 7.

Don't get me wrong it is a great spec'ed phone, but "Super" it is not unless all smartphones out now are considered super.
