Exclusive: the LG G3 will feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and advanced personalization
The title image here is just a concept render, but we do finally have some legitimate information about the LG G3 to pass along. There have been rumors here and there that the G3 will have an incredibly high-resolution display, and we now have confirmation from a source at LG that the next LG flagship will indeed feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD display. 

This means the display will have a resolution of 2,560x1,440 pixels, and a pixels per inch (PPI) measurement of an insane 534 PPI. This is most likely the same display that LG showed off back in August of last year, which LG rated at 538 PPI. Either way, the display will easily have the highest PPI of any smartphone currently on the market, at least that's assuming the G3 is released before the upcoming Oppo Find 7, which has been rumored to use a display with the same specs. 

But, that's not all. Our source also has some info on what to expect from the software on the G3, which is said to have "advanced personalization" features. Although, from the information that we got, it is unclear how much of those features are Google Now and how much are custom LG software. There are a number of options that sound like Google Now's personal assistant options, like location-based reminders, calendar organization, traffic alerts, and intelligent push of news and location-based recommendations. However, LG wants to go beyond that. 

Supposedly, the G3 software will continuously adapt and learn your usage patterns and habits in order to offer you more personalized information. This is where the info we got becomes somewhat hazy. We were told that the user interface would adapt and change based on your usage and needs, which sounds a bit like Aviate; and, we were told that the G3 would give you "helpful ideas" in order to be more productive. Unfortunately, we have no good idea as to what that might mean. 

We couldn't get any info on a release window, but it has been rumored that the G3 would be released sometime in mid-May.

I think 5.5 inches may be slightly too large to allow the phone to be suitably compact. I do not want this phone to be any larger than the G2.

The rear looks ugly

Please I hope it's not Smapdragon 801, 805, but a much powerful Tegra5 or the Exynos A15,,,,?

Another plastic phone by LG, do they ever listen to what customers need and want? We are really fed up with plastic plastic ,,,, come on LG you know plastic is not quality and prestige

LG did premium on the Optimus G last year. Did you buy one to support them and show them they were onto something? I did.

Did you try it? Or are you one of those people that only read reviews. Go in to a store and hold it. The phone is heavy, edges are sharp, what was worst was the OS, i couldn't stand the lack of simple stuff. So like i said crappy phone.

Hahaha, you don't even know how was the icon.
I went in Verizon store in on nicholasville road in Lexington, ky. Icon was not heavy at all, and edges are not sharp it was comfortable. And that 3 column of tiles Looks fantastic. And I'm not lying.

I didn't find it THAT heavy, but it is heavier than it's competitors, and I also didn't like the sharp and thick edges that much. it all depends on how big the palms of our hands are.

DJ, you can explain this to people till you're blue in the face dude, it's a waste of time. If thinking of u didn't like it, the fanboys are gonna say you didn't have one, keep it pushin yo. It's not worth the headache, for them not to believe you anyway, cuz there's no possible way you can dislike something they love.

dark, even from his other posts he makes it quite obvious he has it out for WP, and "disgrace of a phone the icon" really thats like saying the note 3 is garbage

I just remember posting stuff from my note 2&3, while being told I didn't have them and that I was lying. It's gotten to the point of just posting, and leaving it at that. My post was generalizing though, not targeting.

As much as I hate asking advice from Derek Jeter...
If you had to buy a new phone in the next MONTH - would you get the G2, New HTC One, or Galaxy S5?
PS - Go Orioles!
