LG Netherlands slips, publishes product page for LG G3; leak confirms 2GB of RAM on board
We all know the story about the little Dutch boy, who plugged up a leak in a dam using his finger. Well, there is no finger big enough to plug up the damn leak that came out of LG Netherlands on Monday. The day before the LG G3 is to be unveiled, the LG subsidiary accidentally published its full product page for the LG G3. Some of the information has been taken down, but a surprisingly large amount of information was left online for some time.

As we know, the LG G3 will come with a 5.5 inch screen, featuring a resolution of 1440 x 2560. The quad-core processor under the hood is the Snapdragon 801. Unfortunately, the leak confirms the information that came out of LG U.K., which means that the phone will be equipped with 2GB of RAM, not 3GB as was reported earlier. And while there could be different variants of the device with different storage, the leak today shows that the phone will offer 16GB of native storage, not 32GB. Other specs include the 3000mAh removable battery and a 13MP rear facing shooter. Android 4.4.2 is pre-installed. The phone's dimensions are 146.3mm x 74.7mm x 8.9mm.

In addition, the LG G3 will provide tips to the user "based on the status of your phone, your behavior, and the locations where you are," similar to the information provided by Google Now. A Quick Circle feature arranges the six most used apps in a semi-circle that you can access quickly. And the size of the new virtual QWERTY can be adjusted. The rear camera uses a Laser Auto Focus for rapid focusing of your photos and video. Strangely, there was no word about the capacity of the microSD slot. According to LG U.K., the storage capacity of the slot is supposedly 2TB.

By this time tomorrow, we should have all your questions answered.

The design is nice indeed. However same 801 to push for all those pixels?! Hmmm do no about that. Plus it's big! Ok small bezels but it's big! Keep it 5" same size bezels and a full HD. Now that would be perfect.

I am not worried about the performance of the 801 with a 2k screen, kitkat took care of that. What I am worried about is the 3000 mah battery, who isn't gonna manage to survive with a 5.5" screen and all those pixels, but who knows I might be wrong.

LG so far has the best battery optimization in all truth. Plus metal housing with removable back piece = simply buy a new battery when this one loses charge. This phone is sick, LG doesn't do things they aren't capable of

The Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 is pushing more pixels and has an 800... Runs perfectly.

Runs perfectly if you like lag. This isnt hater talk. Im actually a big samsung fan. But that 8.4 has some serious stuttering going on

I wonder one thing about this phone : price

10. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5498; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)


I don't know about the price in U.S. but here in Europe LG G3 price should be similar to the price of any other Android flagship (release day).

I'm guessing around $600-$700 in the U.S.

This is a lot more than the $465 the G2 currently costs on ATT.

Amen to that. 16gb with 2gb ram? No thanks.

32Gb with 3Gb Ram like the Z2 Note3

Yep. Looks like the G3 is the last of the 801 spec bump flagships, but with a bigger and higher resolution screen.

LG could have made this the first 805 flagship instead of the last 801 flagship. I wonder why they didn't do this. Maybe the 805 really is super buggy like the rumors have been saying.

2014 flagships are just expensive versions of 2013 ones. -_-

2014 will be a tale of two halves. All the 1H 2014 phones will be spec bumps and then in 2H 2014, we will see the phones with new technology, i.e. Note 4, iPhone 6, S5 Prime, M8 Prime, etc.

2 gig ram and 16 gig internal means no buy for me that's what my s3 has and it's so bogged down it can't do simple tasks anymore

22. AstronautJones (Posts: 303; Member since: 01 Aug 2012)


Agreed wholeheartedly. Either Note 4 or one of the Primes I hope.

Well that's explained easily. You're S3 is OLD. and it's Samsung, ever thought of thought of that? Plus it employs DDR2 RAM so RAM frequency is very low. Cannot believe you're stuck on ancient tech and moaning about it.

When u run out of 16gb of storage it has nothing to do with technology in a old phone its 2014 storage is cheep now, no phone should come with 16gb and as opposed to ram there is a difference between ddr2 and ddr3 but it's not that huge.. So thanks for your worthless smartly wrote reply

Okay okay I'm sorry. Your argument is totally valid by the way. It's just like OEMS putting 4GB of storage on entry level phones when the OS takes up nearly all of it. They will never yield!

The 2GB of RAM is only a mild disappointment (though it seems an odd choice). I'm pretty disappointed in the only 16GB of internal storage though. They had a good opportunity here to outdo the S5, and dropped the ball.

Oddly, it seems that even after all this time, the Note 3 seems like the best Android handset available...

Only 2 gigs is very sad for me. Waiting for the Note 4 with the 805, 3 gigs and water resistant. As for iPhone I can't get over iOS.
