Choosing a high-end Android
handset isn't getting any easier these days. There are several worthy options to consider, including LG's forthcoming G3 smartphone. LG has yet to formally introduce the world to the G3, but thanks to Sprint's
posting of a UA profile, we pretty know what the new flagship phone will bring to the tablet.
Perhaps the most tantalizing feature is the 5.5-inch qHD display (2560x1440), which translates into about 530 pixels per inch. That's better than what Samsung's recently introduced S5 is offering (5.1-inch Full HD 1080p Super AMOLED, 432 ppi), though to Samsung's credit, the Galaxy S5 won Displaymate's Display Technology Shootout
The LG G3 will reportedly feature a qHD display versus the 1080p display of its predecessor shown above.
Based on Sprint's UA profile, the G3 will also sport a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, microSD card slot (which is something the LG G2
lacked), 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box.
That's an impressive spec sheet that puts the LG G3 firmly into superphone territory. What we don't know, however, are what other features the G3 might have, such as a fingerprint scanner. We also don't know how much it will cost or when it's slated to release, though we suspect it will show up soon.
