More LG G3 accessories revealed, case available for order on Amazon
In light of the stellar success of the Samsung Galaxy S5, and the positive reception the HTC One (M8), not to mention the excitement surrounding the OnePlus One, the OPPO Find 7, and Sony Xperia Z2, one would think 2014 is all said and done with cool devices to take a bow. There is one notable flagship left, and if it were not for the awesome feature set of its predecessor, we would not be all that excited about it, but we are, and that is the LG G3.
A couple years ago, it seemed like Samsung was leaving everyone in the dust. HTC was struggling as was everyone else it seems, including LG. Then HTC chimed in with the HTC One (M7) and folks fell for the build quality. Shortly thereafter, Samsung opted in with the stellar Galaxy S4. It would be months before we would feast our eyes on the LG G2 which brought with it that little bit extra that the other flagships lacked.
At the time of our review of the G2, its spec sheet was second to none, and it can be argued that it was Samsung’s and HTC’s turn to play catch-up. Even today, the LG G2 has more in common with the current flagship line than it does with last year's brood. Now, we are eagerly awaiting for LG’s May 27th event where we are expecting all eyes to fall upon the LG G3.
If the rumors turn out to be true, the competition will be playing catch-up. We have been seeing plenty of leaked images of the G3 as well as renderings for cases and we know LG is going to promote some accessories for its new flagship too. That has us excited for a very big announcement.
If you know the LG G3 is going to be in your future, then you should know that you can pre-order a case for it right now. The Rignke FUSION bumper case has a thin profile and is clear to show off whatever color G3 you get. According to the page, it will be in stock on June 30th and is only $10 plus shipping. While we are tempted to correlate this case's in-stock date with an actual release date of the phone, we are holding back since the new G3 is sure to greet several markets and carriers at different times. These case renders look just like some other images we have seen already, but at least now we know which parts these images belong to.
Thanks for the tip Asaf!

What's the cut-out on the top of the case for? Looks like some S-Pen or maybe TV antenna?

no , if you saw the leaked pictures of g3 , 3,5mm jack at the bottom

It's a tv antenna for the korean and other asian markets. Samsung also offers this feature in some of their models.

That is what we believe too. The LG G Flex we first got to try was a Korean model and had an antenna for TV too.

This version of the phone is for Asian market.. this is why it has a tv antenna.. :)

Nice neat and slick looking slightly wider looking phone like Nexus4
But if only it had Xneon flash
5. maherk (Posts: 806; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
I would rather have led flash over a xenon one, for videos in low light and also using it as a torch. I don't remember which Nokia phone had both the led and xenon flash in thw same handset, that would be great if OEMs started going for it

Hmmm, that black area to the left of the camera might be a fingerprint scanner. It's placement is a little questionable...
10. marcski07 (Posts: 311; Member since: 25 Apr 2014)
or maybe a sensor that can help the g3's camera to focus in low-light/dark.
13. maherk (Posts: 806; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
That's what I was thinking. I do believe that LG will present a groundbreaking technology when it comes to the camera. If Samsung didn't step their game up with the Note 4 LG G3 followed by the Z2 will be the best Android phnes in 2014(and no I am not talking about the design, because if one thing we should by now realize, is that design isn't a priority for the majority of people)
15. fzacek (Posts: 1443; Member since: 26 Jan 2014)
Oh yeah, there was an article about that. Looks a little large to be a sensor though...

Only potential negative i see is the speaker location. If only it had stereo speakers on the front like M8, it would have made it PERFECT !

The front logo looks nicer in these images than in the renders. The renders had huge logo panels at the buttom that were finished differently than the rest of the phone. These case images show what looks like black glass.

These picture of the lg g3 are off, notice the lower bezel is different than other leaks?

G3 has still more aces to show off. We don't know its exact specs or what t the sensor will really be, though we do know what they'll probably be. For M8 we pretty much knew everything in detail.

That black coloured bezel looks so much better than the one with different colours.

This phone is beautiful. Wish it came with touchwiz and a sammy camera.

Not sure the June 30 date corresponds to lg g3 release date, as there is another case listed on amazon...LG G3 Case - 3 in 1 Bundle Armor Grenade Stand Hard Gel Case...which shows an in-stock date of June 8. Guess we just keep guessing!
