LG G3 release date, price, specs and new features

Chris Martin | March 21, 2014
LG blew us away with the G2 smartphone so what can it bring to the table with the LG G3? We take a look at the LG G3 release date, price, specifications and new features.

This all seems pretty set in stone then but phones such as the Galaxy S5 were tipped for a QHD screen but that turned out to be wrong. We hope this one is correct.

Octa-core processor

Moving on, rumours suggest that the LG G3 will be powered by LG's own octa-core processor called 'Odin'. This consists of four 2.2GHz Cortex-A15 cores and another four 1.7GHz Cortex-A7 cores. It uses ARM's big.LITTLE configuration meaning tasks will be performed by the appropriate cores, therefore saving power.

Improved camera

The camera is up for debate with rumours of both the same 13Mp sensor found in the G2 but improved OIS+ (optical image stabilisation) technology, and a 16Mp shooter. Either way, it's likely that the G3 will offer 4k video recording.

Fingerprint scanner

Like the iPhone 5s and Samsung Galaxy S5, the G3 is tipped to feature a fingerprint scanner. Details are thin on the ground but it would make sense for LG to position in on the RearKey - the physical set of button on the back of the phone introduced with the G2.

Personalised software

On the software side of things, LG is expected to add more 'advanced personalization' features. The G3 software will "continuously adapt and learn your usage patterns and habits in order to offer you more personalized information", according to PhoneArena which spoke to an LG source. However, it's unclear how much of this is Google Now, not LG's own software.

Overall, it looks like there's a lot to get excited about with the LG G3. We'll update this article when we hear anything more to share on the subject.
