Golden LG G3 reportedly confirmed to arrive this summer, retail box leaked

It appears that LG’s next-generation flagship smartphone will indeed be called G3, as we heard many times until now. The Verge received a photo (see below) that allegedly shows the retail box of a golden LG G3.

Unfortunately, the handset itself hasn’t been pictured, but The Verge says that, as we assumed earlier this week, the device will resemble the recently-leaked LG isai FL (which should be launched in Japan later this year). If that’s the case, we’re expecting the G3 to have extremely thin bezels, and - like the G2 - a set of buttons on the back.

According to unnamed sources that talked to The Verge, the LG G3 “is set for a summer release.” It should feature a display with 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) that likely measures 5.5-inches. The G3 will probably be the first Quad HD smartphone released by a major company. Until now, only China-based Vivo and Oppo unveiled handsets with Quad HD screens.

As you may know, LG's current G2 flagship also has a golden variant, besides black, white and red models. LG could officially announce the G3 in May, or June. In the past, Google used two LG flagship handsets (albeit modified) for its own Nexus smartphones. However, at the moment there’s no word if the same thing will happen with the G3. Anyway, we’ll be here to let you know when new details about this arrive.
