LG G3 pictured in the wild, back and front sides exposed

It was bound to happen sooner or later – the rumored and highly-anticipated smartphone known as the LG G3 has finally been leaked on the internet in a set of clear, high-res pictures. These come straight from a Korean website and expose the device's front, back, and bottom sides. 

From the looks of it, LG will once again be aiming to deliver a maximum screen-to-size ratio. Like its predecessor, the LG G2, the handset appears to have ultra-thin side bezels and no physical buttons below the screen. The display of the handset isn't on, unfortunately, and it would have been nice if we could take a peek at its customized Android UI. 

To no surprise, the LG G3's power and volume keys are placed on the back and appear just like they did in earlier leaks. The camera seems to be backed up by a two-tone dual-LED flash, as the case is with the iPhone 5s and the HTC One (M8). There doesn't seem to be anything exciting about the bottom part of the handset – we only see a microUSB 2.0 port, a 3.5-millimeter headphone jack, and a microphone.

LG is expected to announce the LG G3 at an official event scheduled for May 27. For more details on what specs and features the new flagship will brag with, you might want to check out our in-depth LG G3 rumor round-up.

Thanks to all who sent this in!

side bezel extinction + good color match (premium looking) + angled sides = simple + elegant

It reminds me of the HTC one X. The front is sleek, the back is meh.

Yeah I was hoping they use the matte plastic applied on the nexus 5. But these are bad angle views so the back might have a better look :P

The LG G2 in red or gold is non reflective non glossy plastic. Not soft touch like the black N5 though, but better than this glossy mess.

Plus, why is the shape not symmetrical? It seems off balance. Sony, Apple and even Google produce very uniform designs. HTCs dual camera and front grills break the uniformity of the device.

Anyways, why is there ZERO branding on the back (which is a good thing but unlikely)? May be a dummy concept model of the actual G3?

I'm more concerned that they moved the speaker from the side to the back of the device.

As long as it comes in black I'm game... Have to wait to see what Apple brings to the table before I buy my smart phone this year.

If you're gonna wait for the iPhone 6 you might as well wait to see what the Galaxy Note 4 brings too.

I'm a Sammy fanboy but I think this looks better than my GS5

IDK….I'd go with the Back of GS5, and Front of this, and slap them together.
Screw what the haters say. The back of the GS5 looks real nice.

S5's back does not look like a band aid. I can't believe we're still arguing about this. If you really saw the GS5 in real life you can't possibly come to the conclusion that it's ugly. But I really do like G3's simplistic design.

It's personal opinion. Tbh, the S5 in gold color do look like a band aid imo. But still, the S5 feels way better than the older Galaxy flagships with glossy plastic.

There's nothing wrong with being a fanboy, as long as you're not ignorant or pathetic like the dude above you then it's okay. Anyone can be a fanboy, but a pathetic fanboy (like the dude above you) will be looked down as a loser and criticized by everyone.

FriendsOfSamsung is indeed a loser. Enough said.

Everything looks better than what Samsung brings to the table.

I've handled this phone (G2). I just can't like the power and volum buttons on the back. I tried.. and tried.. but can't.

Lack of physical buttons or capacitive below the screen is a big fail as well. After having the Nexus, I will never support on screen buttons. Takes up my valuable screen!

As for the S5.. sure it looks like a band-aid in gold color. Who would buy gold??? ISH. Take any design and it looks like something familiar these days. Have you handled the S5? It feels pretty good in the hand. The back lost it's glossy, slick, fingerprint magnetic finish.. I'm glad Sammy changed from the faux leather to the band-aid finish.

Agreed, I think it is ugly too. The display however with UHD and no side bezel is a different beast altogether.

I swear that is just a case! It should Have LG or carrier branding on it, ESPECIALLY since it is in Korea.
