LG G3 to come with Snapdragon 805, 3200 mAh battery, and 13 MP Sony sensor with OIS+, claims insider
0. phoneArena 07 May 2014, 01:53 posted on
LG will apparently be using the same 13 MP Sony IMX124 Exmor RS sensor that is in the OnePlus One, if the source is to be believed. It comes with an f/2.0 aperture, which means good performance in low-light conditions on theory, and, judging from the OnePlus One samples, the results are pretty decent indeed. The tipster also confirms that the camera will be on the same suspension mechanism that is in the G Pro 2, called OIS+...

The article says IMX124, I believe they meant IMX214 ! LOL

Totally love my 3 week old G2 but will get rid of it in a NY minute, if the specs for the G3 are accurate. This will be the best phone of 2014, including any new Apple stuff, and I was an apple fanboi.

Welcome to the Android side :D I wouldn't the the G3 the best phone of 2014 just yet since we still got 7 months to go :P But it will be so beastly for sure. I'm looking forward to the Z3, Note 4, S5 Prime and HTC One M8 Prime, and whatever else that's a beast!!

Snapdragon 805 has been delayed since its performance is lower than expected due to throttling. So it's absolutely not true that G3 will powered by SD805

If it's been delayed then why has Qualcomm already pushed out it's developer tablet with the 805 processor on it as of last month?
Also, there is no indication from any article that I can find that Qualcomm has delayed the 805 processor. In fact, more and more GFX benchmarks are showing the processor on board mystery devices.

I hope you're not going to claim you have some insider information because I can tell you this site has had about a dime a dozen "insiders" that have been proven to be fakes.

HA! How about that! I told you "THERE IS NO SNAPDRAGON 805"

Just an over clocked S800 to 2.7Ghz
A9 can be clocked max upto 2.7Ghz
A15 upto 3.0Ghz

another spam by the "power user"

Anandtech and Arm them self says that
So they are bogus and BS
58. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Did you not know Arm Cortex A9 can be clocked upto max 2.7Ghz
So what's wrong being a power user
So your complaining if people drive M3 Amg55 and Jaguar Xkr and users using intel i7 soc at 3.0+Ghz
So your complain people should drive BS 2.0engine and not 4.0 or above

Stupid comparison, most people who overclock their intel i7 CPU buy aftermarket equipment to cool it down. S800, S801 and Cortex A15 SoCs already generate plenty of heat on stock clocks.

Sounds like a perfect phone. I'm very excited!

It will be a big win for LG if they got some sort of exclusive on the 805.
As it stands now, it is hard for me to believe that Samsung and HTC would launch phones using the 801 if the 805 was going to be available two months later. So I am guessing the G3 will ship with the 801. And will be pleasantly surprised if it shows up with an 805 :)
15. Noble_One (Posts: 60; Member since: 18 Aug 2012)
LG always launches with Qualcomm's latest first though so this is more than likely true. Particularly after q comm said a phone would launch in may with the 805. There are no other choices for a big launch since, as you mentioned, HTC and Samsung already released flagship devices.
19. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3806; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
I hope LG has landed the 805 for the G3. If the G2 had buttons on the side instead of the back, I probably would have bought it instead of the Note 3. It seems that LG has done a good job with the the G3, but again it is only the buttons on the back that hold me back. That and having some confidence that the new model can be rooted. Big brand phones are getting more and more locked down. I would even pay more for the G3 than the OnePlus One as the OPO has a lot of software bugs from what I hear.

Excited.....but Im worried about pricing...looking at those specs....my wallet's gonna cry.
I'll gonna call it now....release price will be 700+
35. fanboy1974 (Posts: 1313; Member since: 12 Nov 2011)
Don't worry about pricing. I bet this phone could hit $100 on contract after 3 days. I've seen it too many times before. Only iPhones tend to stay high after a few months. Not saying that the phone will be bad but because there are so many nice options you need price to entice people to buy as well.

No matter how desperate LG keep on leaking, it's still LG, bad reputation company because of build quality issue, software update issue, and customer service issue, and so forth
People would definitely run away when they see LG logo on it

He's not a fanboy, he's FriendsOfSamsung which is worse than a fanboy.

Straight up company shill that guy is.

When you see FriendsOfSamsung, just ignore him unless he reply BS to you. He likes to see people getting mad because of his BS comments and he also likes getting bad replies, so just ignore him.
He must be the idiot "wendygarett" that was banned long time ago, because these two have same personalities which hates everything that isn't Samsung.

I miss Wendy lol. He/she/it was funny lol. So stupid.
39. refillable (Posts: 832; Member since: 10 Mar 2014)
Lol, I think he/she/it was banned because he/she/it was a disgrace towards Samsung itself... BTW it's quite entertaining to see these kind of people. But I prefer those guys who's trying to be smart with factually no idea on what they're talking about.

you cant forget Troll because he is right above you disguised as "Power user"
76. ArtSim98 (Posts: 3503; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
lol. The similarities between the two are way too big. They must be the same-

sorry but note 4 is under way
18. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3806; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
I think they run away when they can't find the buttons because they are hiding on the back, not just from the logo :)

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Samsung fanboys like you, who don't think anything else is good except for Samsung, are the reason why I HATE Samsung devices.
You must be Richard Yarrow, that idiot who runs around Google+ and Twitter all day yelling "Samsung Knights Assemble"!

"FriendsOfSamsung" - stop making shame for Samsung! :D
86. Ctt04 (Posts: 2; Member since: 16 May 2014)
Haha, that's hilarious. LG's first attempt at a top tier smartphone, the optimus g, was a fantastic phone. It blew the s3 out of the water and even though it's specs are a little less than the s4's, it was more reliable and arguably a better phone overall. The successor to that phone (not counting the g pro), the G2,is much better than the s4, and I would rather have it than the s5. Samsung has always had a reputation for cheap build quality, LG's high end phones feel much better. And don't even get me started on software updates. Ever since the S2, Samsung has consistently royally screwed up each of their phones with their software updates. They make it so the phones won't charge (even when they say they are charging), they make the phones randomly lock and then unable to unlock for five minutes, and tons of other issues. I work as a tech and sales associate for a major cellphone carrier, and Samsung has, by far, been the worst manufacturer when it comes to software issues. They make the phones virtually unusable in a lot of cases. So yeah, I would rather own LG, Apple Motorola, and HTC over Samsung any day of the week.

I will say, however, that the Note 3 is their only truly great phone. But honestly, that's it.

Sounds like e great device! LG is definitely doing well this year!

If the front facing camera isn't 5mp and the speakers are on the back then fail.

23. MarkArigayo (Posts: 240; Member since: 18 Dec 2013)
Oh, at least G3 much much better than the AMOLED ones.
55. StraightEdgeNexus (Posts: 3682; Member since: 14 Feb 2014)
f@rt$. Super Amoled always the best.
59. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
And the SuperAmoled+ will destroy every screen out there
67. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
Agree LCD are STILL better than OLED based screens.
27. GreekGeek (Posts: 959; Member since: 22 Mar 2014)
OUCH !!! goes to Samsung S5, SONY Z2 and HTC M8
30. Dr.Phil (Posts: 1006; Member since: 14 Feb 2011)
I believe there's a typo. It's the Sony IMX214 not IMX124 that was used in the OnePlus One.
