Is this the back of the LG G3?

Earlier this week, we saw what appeared to be the new UI that’s going to be featured on LG’s upcoming G3 flagship smartphone. And now it looks like a photo of the handset itself was revealed by GSM Arena.

Unfortunately, said photo - embedded on the left - is heavily altered, and only shows the back of a white G3 (or what’s believed to be the G3 anyway).

The rear of the handset matches the design of these protective cases that are purportedly made for the G3 (although we can’t confirm their authenticity). We can see a rear camera with a Flash on its right side, and a a mysterious sensor on the left. Below the camera there’s a set of buttons - similar, and yet different from what we can see on the LG G2, or on the G Pro 2.

LG might officially announce the new G3 in the next few months. The smartphone should feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, most probably being the first handset from a well-known manufacturer to offer such a screen.

Besides white, the LG G3 should also have a gold version - and we’re thinking that black and red may also be among its color options (since the older G2 is available in these colors).

If this is indeed the back of the LG G3, do you like it so far?

Why so much fuss over the back of a phone? Overall design matters but a distorted image that might be fabricated doesn't mean much. I thought it was what the display that mattered......some people

Oh, common people, this has fake written all over it. Who takes pictures like this? With some written data in the background...

It looks too big and I don't want to risk being annoyed with the back buttons. Hopefully the Nexus 6 rocks. Last chance for a 2014 phone to get it right.

I don't spend a lot of time looking at the back of my phone. I like the button placements for practical reasons, and other features LG has been including this past year. Take my money.

This is no fake. But still not sure if Duo camera (probably not) or Fingerprint scanner and Camera or Camera and Heart rate sensor? o.O

Some companies like HTC and LG like design awards instead of selling phones. LG would sell far more phones if they let go of their "buttons on back" fail and made nicely integrated side buttons. They seem to be doing this a little on the G3, but will probably wait until G5 before they finally release a phone with usable buttons -- after they realize they lost $10 billion in sales due to their "buttons on back" stupidity.
