Is this the LG G3: specs for top-shelf Sprint-bound LG phone leak out

Bits and pieces about the LG G3, LG’s anticipated next Android flagship, have leaked out here and there, but this latest leak of a UA Prof file of a mysterious device could turn out to be one of the biggest of them information drains.

The file was spotted on Sprint’s official website, and it reveals details about an upcoming LG-LS990 device, a phone that could turn out to be the LG G3.

The leaked specs paint a picture of a device with a large, 5.5-inch display that has a Quad HD resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels), higher than current-day devices. Other spec highlights include a quad-core Snapdragon chip under the hood, and a 13-megapixel main camera. All in all, it’s clear that we’re looking at a top-shelf device with pretty much the latest specs. 

The only slightly confusing detail of the LG G3 puzzle painted here is the system chip. The UA Prof file lists a variation of the Snapdragon 800, and it’s reasonable to expect newer hardware (like the Snapdragon 801) on such a device. 

Take a look at all the leaked specs for this LG G3 candidate yourself below:

Should we trust this leak? It’s important to know that it comes from a User Agent Profile (UA Prof) file, a type of specification files that describes the model, screen size and other features of the device before it gets officialized. Making such a file is not obligatory, but usually when released it is comes from the phone maker itself (in this case from LG), and is a near-official confirmation of a device’s existence. This does not mean that LG can't change things in the last moment, though, so we'd advise you not to take anything for granted until the official launch of the device.

LG will go with the 805... G3 will be my next phone. I know they will go best of the best on spec. I hope they add water resistance. Loving my G2 for now and loved my Optimus G before.

Normal phones are entering phabletry size. Phablets are taking over the tablet space. Tablets have no where to go.

Tablets will take over Compact 13" Notebooks (Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro). Notebooks will take over Home PC systems (Acer 18.4" laptop). PC systems' market will not survive. Only Enthusiasts keep those.

Just a side note, the M8974AAAAANLYD2145A.1 is the baseband version and not refering to MSM8974/APQ8974. Might as well be using the same(-ish) modem with SD805.

Well, there's simply no way the G3 is going to have the S800 chip, coz its plainly absurd. It would atleast have the S801 if not getting the S805 for sure. The things I'm looking forward to are hge imprvements to the camera, display and battery department with no compromise on raw power, in short a complete upgrade to the awesome G2.

its not fair if they didnt put Snapdragon 805 chip in there.. cos then it'll just be a bigger screen size of G2,QHD and just some software upgrades.. we want hardware upgrades too LG!

With these specs, this will be a fail and just for one reason...its size. With 5,5in screen, it enters in NOTE turf, it is not a phone anymore, yet a phablet, and we all know who is the king in that castle. Not to mention that N4 will come also with QHD screen, at least SD805 cpu, probably 4GB rams, its unique S-PEN and all of other goodies that can be found only in NOTE series. If it remained on 5,2in screen it would have a lot brighter future and could compete with S5, M8 and Z2...Surely it will be a great phone, but NOTE4 is just to strong competitor to fight with...

The screen size itself is not going to make it a Note 3/4 competitor, it will still be an S5/M8 competitor based on price alone. The G2 is a bargain compared to the S4 while beating it's specs, but there's no comparison to any other phone demographic, despite being only .3" smaller than the Note 2. This is also how buyers will be deciding between them, by price. LG also did a great job keeping the G2 very compact for its screen size, which they did for the prior year's Optimus G and I'm sure they'll do for this year's G3. Bottom line, it won't be compared to the Note 3 or 4, nor the G Flex or any other phablet type device. There's no doubt that the line is getting blurry, however...

I Want A Snapdragon 805 Chip in that Beast. Qualcomm stated a couple of months ago that the first consumer Snapdragon 805 device will be released in May. Dunno Whats wrong...

I'd be really surprised if it didn't come the 805 myself.

5.5 inch? then what will the next G-Pro 3 be? 7 inch? I hope the G3 is not 5.5 inch, thats what the G-Pro is for, the G3 needs to be more compact.

I think the a smaller 5.2 inch display like that of G2 would be better than this 5.5 inch. But anyway, this phone will be a killer for sure.

I want removable battery like korean G2 available in EU + better quality pictures than G2

I want powerfull flash, USB3 and if it has a 5.5" screen better be in a 5-incher's body, not bigger than G2's. I don't care about waterproofing, fingerprint scanners, heart rate monitors, gimmick cameras.

And not less than 32GB internal storage. 16GB is not enough anymore. I also don't care about more than 1080p.

Maybe it's not the G3 but just a screen and ram upgrated G2

29. g2a5b0e unregistered

Dude, the G2 has some of the slimmest bezels on any phone to date. It would be impossible to fit a 5.5" screen in that body. Be realistic.

Then they should shrink the screen size. I don't want to call a 5.5" a phone.

I somehow doubt LG gives a f*ck about what YOU want. If you have a problem with the size of this phone, buy another one. It's very simple.

What's wrong with you with being very rude with me?

35. g2a5b0e unregistered

I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just tired of people constantly complaining about the size of phones. It's gotten so old. Either suck it up & see that it's the direction the industry has taken or buy a smaller phone. The choices are simple. But, telling LG to shrink the phone because it's too big for YOU is a pointless endeavor.

It would still be logical to complain, as a 5.5" phone would be very hard to use with only one hand. What's wrong with telling LG on what's good for them? They're surely going to lose some potential buyers if they keep it at 5.5". Sure, I won't buy the G3 if it's, 5.5" because I don't like it. You don't have to tell me. I will buy an S5 instead. You could believe on your own opinion, but we just prefer the other way around. Please respect that.
