First LG G3 press renders appear, showing the QHD flagship in all its brushed finish glory
Want to know how the LG G3 will look like outside of blurry spy shots and murky concepts? We got tipped the first press shots of the upcoming LG flagship, telling us that the golden chassis trend has laid its eggs deep in the host. We kid, but the hotly-anticipated flagship is indeed going to be available in the fashionable golden color, as well as titan grey and silver colors. All rumors that the phone will feature a special finish that looks like brushed metal, seem to hold water, though it's still likely to be made of polycarbonate.

As a reminder, the LG G3 unveiling is just around the corner, expected for a May 27th unveiling, and the handset is expected to be the first smartphone from a big brand-name manufacturer, which will feature a 5.5" display panel with the breathtaking Quad HD 1440x2560 pixels resolution. The latest Snapdragon 805 chipset and 3 GB of RAM are cited to round up the pretty offering, as well as a 13 MP optically-stabilized camera with what seems like a two-tone flash. The Optimus UI might have also received a thorough overhaul, judging from LG's teaser video, as well as numerous reports for a more "personalized" experience

According to the press renders below, the G3 might still feature the excellent screen-to-body ratio of its predecessor, offering a huge display bordering on the phablet realm, in a comparatively compact chassis, just like the G Pro 2. From the looks of it, the signature rear keys have been redesigned with a different, more premium look, and a finger-friendly texture. There is also a mysterious elliptic opening next to them, so we can't wait to put this puppy through its paces the first chance we get. Do you like what you see so far?

Thanks for the tip!
