LG Unveils “Smart And Simple” G3 Smartphone With 2650x1440 Display

The LG G3 smartphone is here, and LG is touting the high-end G2 successor as smart and simple, harnessing the best that technology has to offer while keeping the user experience as straightforward as possible.

First off, there’s a lot happening under the hood. The G3 rocks a quad core Snapdragon 801 (up to 2.5GHz) processor with up to 3GB of DDR3 RAM, 32GB of onboard storage with up to 128GB more via a microSD card slot, and a rear 13MP camera with OIS+ Laser Autofocus (for super-quick focusing) and dual flash and a front-facing 2.1MP camera.

The handset runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and sports a large 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS display with a resolution of 2560x1440. There’s a removable 3000 mAh battery, and the 4G LTE device sports 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth Smart Ready, NFC, SlimPort, A-GPS/GLONASS, and USB 2.0.

LG is calling the G3’s sexy shape the “Floating Arc” concept, but whatever it’s called, it’s beautiful, especially in tandem with the brushed metal back. The device also offers LG Tone Infinim speakers with technology from Harman/Kardon as well as wireless charging capabilities.

Other features include a Smart Keyboard, Smart Notice (a sort of “lite” personal assistant), Knock Code (for unlocking the phone with taps), and Guest Mode, and it’ll be available in black, white, gold, moon violet, and burgundy red worldwide starting in South Korea on May 28th.

Nice phone.... but PASS. All the current flagship phones are just stop-gap measure devices all of them, GS5, One M8/Prime/Ace/Vogue, Lenovo Vibe Z2 Pro, etc etc all are shipping with the Snapdragon 801 cpu which is just a temporary CPU since the snapdragon 808 was delayed. Again these are amazingly great devices and worth every penny but when the manufacturer themselves admit they are temporary devices until the 808 starts being used in a few months well then I am inclined to wait for the 808 version of whichever of these phones I actually planned on buying.

Does the bigger resolution of the display affect battery performance? Does it also affect gaming performance like a loss of FPS?

Craig: yes it affects both those things but that is one of the reasons why it has a massive 3000mah battery which only a few phones have. That is why the upcoming Lenovo Vibe Pro which has the same resolution but larger 6" screen will be packed with an unheard of 4000mah battery.

That thing's got a higher res than my 26 inch monitor...

No doubt, that thing has some serious pixels going on. I want to A/B versus the Samsung Galaxy S5's display to see if it matters. I do know it's more rendering workload for the Snapdragon 801 but that chip can handle it I think.
