At the beginning of the week, word spread that Sprint had inadvertently leaked LG's spec sheet
for its forthcoming G3 smartphone. The highlight of that leak is the revelation of a 5.5-inch qHD (2560x1440) display, which works out to about 530 densely packed pixels per inch (ppi). Following up on that leak, Twitter user "@evleaks" posted a picture of the upcoming LG
isai FL, a handset that's headed for Japanese carrier KDDI. Word on the web is that the G3 will look very similar that device.
The LG isai FL sports an ultra-thin bezel on the sides and even on the top to some extent. This would pair nicely with the G3's insanely high resolution. Granted, we're talking about two different handsets here, but according to The Verge
, the isai FL bears a "familial resemblance to the new G3," which means that it too will likely have a thin bezel.
Not many smartphones feature such a high resolution as the LG G3. There were rumors ahead of Samsung's Galaxy S5
launch that it would sport 2560x1440 panel, but Samsung opted instead for a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED Full HD 1080p display (432 ppi). One reason could be due to battery life -- it takes more power to drive higher resolutions, and so far, consumers seem content with 1080p.
The LG G3 will test that notion. It will also feature a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage supplemented by a microSD card slot, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat.
