Golden LG G3 reportedly confirmed to arrive this summer, retail box leaked

Posted: , by Florin T.

It appears that LG’s next-generation flagship smartphone will indeed be called G3, as we heard many times until now. The Verge received a photo (see below) that allegedly shows the retail box of a golden LG G3.

Unfortunately, the handset itself hasn’t been pictured, but The Verge says that, as we assumed earlier this week, the device will resemble the recently-leaked LG isai FL (which should be launched in Japan later this year). If that’s the case, we’re expecting the G3 to have extremely thin bezels, and - like the G2 - a set of buttons on the back.

According to
Golden LG G3 reportedly confirmed to arrive this summer, retail box leaked
unnamed sources that talked to The Verge, the LG G3 “is set for a summer release.” It should feature a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) that likely measures 5.5-inches. The G3 will probably be the first Quad HD smartphone released by a major company. Until now, only China-based Vivo and Oppo unveiled handsets with Quad HD screens.

As you may know, LG's current G2 flagship also has a golden variant, besides black, white and red models. LG could officially announce the G3 in May, or June. In the past, Google used two LG flagship handsets (albeit modified) for its own Nexus smartphones. However, at the moment there’s no word if the same thing will happen with the G3. Anyway, we’ll be here to let you know when new details about this arrive.

What carrier do you have the LG G2 with? The UI and the phone both look/ feel cartoonish and cheap on At&t's/ TMobile's versions of the G2 (I havent had a chance to evaluate Sprints G2 yet.) Verizon's version (while not perfect) the UI and build quality of the phone is much improved!

Why is that box ENORMOUS jesus. 5.5 inch screen doesn't need that big of a box, looks hot though. I want to see the damn device already, i swell with anticipation of them making it WAY sexier and more durable then the g2

The UI is fine until you pull down the notification bar. Way too cluttered but some people like it. LG is coming back and the G3 is going to be amazing! Can't wait!

I've had the G2 6 month's now. Easily IMO better than the S4 and The One (M7), both of which I still have. The G3 will at least have the 801 with possibly the 805. As far as the UI... It's about the same as Samsung and HTC.. How about a Google Edition G3? I'm not talking about a Nexus where because of price something has to give like the battery.

I do agree that samsung and lg need to work big time on their ui. But seriously, how many people stick with the stock launcher these days? The beauty of android is that you can easily use any other launcher. There are tons of choices. You can even download & use ones that closely mimick google's stock android. Best is you dont need to root ur phone & most of them are free. Sometimes i cant help feeling that online reviewers make too much fuss about touchwiz or sense or whatever. The buyer need not use it if its too bloated or laggy for christ's sake. Now as far as the iphone is concerned, the ui is as important as the hardware because you are stuck with it. I am not sure to what extent you can change the ui after jail breaking though.
