The much awaited LG G3 was recently launched with the tagline “Simple is the New Smart”. While the price of the G3 is not yet known, what’s known is that the new smartphone from LG operates on the latest Android KitKat and boasts an HD display with an incredible pixel density of 538 ppi. The brand says that their new smartphone is to define what’s ‘real’. Other staggering features include reduced battery consumption with the help of adaptive optimization for frame rate, CPU clocking and timing control.
The new LG G3 looks extremely premium with a lightweight metallic etched real panel. The rear button interface has been refurnished by the brand with new button materials and shapes in order to make the smartphone more ‘intuitive’. The phone is branded both on the front and the back. Other than the company’s logo, the back case of the G3 houses the primary camera and the speaker grille. This smartphone uses on-screen navigation and hence the face of the phone only bears a front cam and sensors. The LG G3 will be available in metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red. All premium colors!
The news-making ‘real’ HD display of the phone spans 5.5 inches. Fire up the G3 and it greets the user with an AH-IPS LCD QHD display with a resolution of 1440x2560 pixels. The before mentioned pixel density of 538 ppi is seriously overwhelming.
The G3 is equipped with a 2.46 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor mated with 2GB RAM. This variant of the phone will feature 16GB of in built memory. Another variant, which boasts a 3GB RAM will feature 32GB of in built memory. After doing the math, it becomes pretty clear the LG G3 will be one furiously fast performance beast. Storage expansion can be made up to 128 GB. A 3000 mAh battery powers the LG G3.
Running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the G3 boasts a custom made UI called ‘simple flat GUI’. The UI is kept minimalistic with light typesetting and circular motifs that encompass the whole interface, from icons to the QuickCircle notification area. The QuickCircle notification area is a circular collection of apps that can be accessed on the top of the screen. LG also launched custom made flip covers for G3 in order to highlight this QuickCircle. ‘Smart Keyboard’, ‘Smart Notice’ and ‘Smart Security’ are three ‘smart’ UI featured that the brand is boasting about.
The G3 boasts a 13 megapixel rear camera with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilization+) and dual LED flash. The camera sports a laser auto-focusing sensor that is capable of focusing in merely 0.276 seconds. Then there is the Touch and Shoot UI which saves the user from focusing the object first and then clicking. One touch does it all! The secondary 2.1 megapixel camera sports a f/2.0 aperture and also features a selfie mode. This mode starts the timer countdown when users move their hands in front of the camera.
LG G3 comes with a myriad of features, some of which, we have never heard of. The only issue or rather mystery remaining about the phone is its price.
