@evleaks received an image which indicates that Verizon intends to take pre-orders for the G3 on July 10, with sales scheduled to begin a week later, on July 17. There are no pricing details, though we expect the new handset to cost $199 on contract, and around $600 unlocked.
The G3 is the first Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) smartphone made by a major company. It’s already available in South Korea, and it seems that sales are going very well thus far there. Despite the fact that its display is a 5.5-inch one, the LG G3 remains compact, and it’s not too large when compared to handsets with smaller screens (like the Samsung Galaxy S5). That aside, the smartphone features Android 4.4 KitKat with new software from LG (including Smart Notice and Smart Keyboard), a 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Just like Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile may want to launch the G3 in July as well. But we’ll see if that’s true. Meanwhile, our LG G3 review is waiting for you to check it out!
