Alleged picture of the LG G3 appears, flaunting a Quad HD display and Snapdragon 801 processor

We've got what is claimed to be the first photo of the upcoming LG G3 flagship, displaying the device info set of the AnTuTu benchmark. There we can clearly see 1440x2560 pixels listed as the resolution, while the graphics processing unit (GPU) is shown to be Qualcomm's Adreno 330. 

If the photo of this bad boy is legit, we can deduce with reasonable certainty that the handset will indeed sport a Quad HD display, and the new Snapdragon 801 processor, that is in the Galaxy S5 and the Xperia Z2. That jibes with all the rumored specs so far, which also include 3 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP camera with OIS+ technology.

We've come to expect a 5.5" display from the handset, with the said 1440x2560 pixels of resolution, which returns 538ppi pixel density - this will be the highest ever announced on a brand name flagship. Don't be fooled that AnTuTu lists 640dpi, as that's how it displays screen density, while in pixels per inch the number is lower. Still, the LG G3 should be the first phone from a large Android manufacturer that breaks the 500ppi barrier, and for the actual difference between a Quad HD and 1080p display, you can check the closeup shots here. LG already announced one 5.5" panel with Quad HD resolution, so it's reasonable to believe this will be the panel the G3 is going to flaunt. Moreover, we already have a phone announced with such a dislplay - the Oppo Find 7 - so an LG G3 with 538ppi is certainly plausible.

Flex would be a pain-in-the-@ss with my pants. The only smartphone series I love is Note. Always much more completed and sophisticated than the S series. But I agree with you about the SoC. Easily to see a down in perf and battery life as the trade-off of the negligible insual increase.

So a 2.2-2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 is low end hardware? Since when did that happen?

It is the lesser of the two for this year. Every year QC releases two soc. One higher an one lower. So that happened a couple years ago, an repeats yearly FYI.

So I guess Samsung should be using their octa core CPUs in the S4 & the Note 3 in new low end phones, since those chipsets have been released last year.

S4 came with S600, Note3 with S800. They were built an classed correctly.

Your might be talking about the US version. I'm talking about the international versions of those phones, which have the octa core CPUs

First gens of them soc had no LTE, so of course not in N/A. Had to add it in later off chip, from broadcom I believe. Not an ideal set up, and they lagged worse then their Qualcomm counterparts.

They were going for the same time frame as HTC, Sony, and Samsung that is why. They planned the release too early for the SD 805. Let's hope that Google insists on the SD805 for the Nexus 6 if it's going to be based on the G3. Usually it's Sony first with the Xperia Z at CES, then HTC at MWC. then Samsung at their own date, and then LG Q4 with the G series.n This year they all tried to release early or mid 2014 because they realized that they can't give Samsung any type of a head start. However, since we have heard nothing about the G3, I think they should just delay it to add the SD805.

Does LG learn from oppo? I mean the 7a beats the 7 in benchmarks because it "only" feautures a FHD screen

Looks great! Now release a WP version of this beast LG! :D

LG is picking up momentum, it'd be silly to adopt a boat anchor of an OS now. No one buys high end WP, its a entry level sales phone.

What momentum is LG picking up? Where I live, Lumias sell more than LG's handsets. And who says no one buys high end WP? I bought one and so did many a million. You are a disrespectful little fandroid troll. Go away!

Show us the numbers of high end WP sold. I'll wait, for a bit. Its common knowledge if not for the 520, they'd be non existent.

BTW, you're trolling in a android story. You've a perfect memory for WP, no idea of the burned bridges along the way. I flicked a quarter over the side for you, now be quiet.

I did not troll on this article. I just expressed my wishes for a WP version of the G3. Now there wasn't any reason to hate on WP in your comment. That shows that you actually cant get enough of WP. Hence, you bring it up on any opportunity you get. Also, could you just transfer the quarter into Indian Rupees and send to me?

I loathe Apple an their ifans. I dislike WP for how many its burned along the way only to not be all that, yet. I use Android as i have since dual booting it with wm6.5 on my HTC touch. It simply is all that, an growing faster then any other, bar non. Sorry about troll comment, I know your not sippy, but that one an Roddy just taint any interest at looking at WP with a serious effort.

Funny how you (and some other guys) wish every android flagships like htc m8, z2 and g3 to have a wp counterpart. But at the end of the day you go and buy a nokia. No offence but this is the truth. Other OEMs dont have money and market in WP.

17. NokiaFTW

Posts: 2072; Member since: Oct 24, 2012

I would like to see more variety in the WP market. Is that funny? And also, many fandroids cry their arses out for a Nokia Android phone. And I would buy a HTC M8 WP version. I'm waiting to buy a decent high end WP other than a Lumia.

Cry for nokia android lol if you asked me this 2 years ago i would have say yes. But now that nokia married with MS, nokia is not that good ol' beloved its now rude, i will say no. And i bet you arent in love with wp. you would still buy nokia forever.

29. NokiaFTW

Posts: 2072; Member since: Oct 24, 2012

Nope, I would never buy an Android phone in my life, even if its from Nokia. If Nokia would have gone the Android way, I would have switched to an iPhone but never continued with Android. Don't go by my username, I love WP & MS more than Nokia.

Oh please stop lying, As if i'm going to believe. MS fanboy lol dont make me cringe. If nokia would have stayed with symbian or anything else WP would be like a desert OS without attention. Show your comment to anyone they will be laughing their arses out. Your post was BS.
