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.
