LG’s G3 Smartphone Coming This Summer With 2560X1440 Display And Super Thin Bezel

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.

Why, there is no battery on earth big enough to power that for more than 18 hours.

Can't we just stick to 1080p on phones and just work on lower power hardware and better batteries.

I'm due for an upgrade, I might hold out for this one! Especially since it seems like there's no other option for US Networks besides Snapdragon 800. I would like a Tegra 4 Based phone with Stylus support!

I have enough trouble hitting the buttons on my 1080p tablet, 1440p on a phone sounds like hell, like companies are running out of ideas and are investing into who has the biggest screen rather than whos battery life lasts longer, or whos phone is more powerful. Reminds me of the 70s when car companies only cared about how big the fucking car is and how big the motor was and didnt give a damn about the handling or the reliability

wonder what games it can play at 1440p seeing as my desktop GPU won't do it at playable frame rates, that being said the screen on the phone is much smaller... would you really notice the 1440p at that screen size, not really
