  • LG D855 (possible G3 variant with a 1080p display) certified in Indonesia

LG D855 (possible G3 variant with a 1080p display) certified in Indonesia

LG D855 (possible G3 variant with a 1080p display) certified in Indonesia

LG this morning revealed that it would host several press events on May 27, and all signs are pointing to the fact that the company intends to announce its new G3 flagship smartphone then.

As reported many times until now, the G3 will have multiple versions. One of them may be the LG D855, which recently received a certification from Indonesia’s Postel (the country’s equivalent of the FCC). The D855 was certified by Postel on April 22.

D855 also has its own User Agent profile over at LG’s website. However, the UA profile currently lists a 1080 x 1920 pixels display, although it’s said that it initially mentioned a Quad HD (1440 x 2560) one. This could be a mistake, or we might look at a lower-specced variant of the G3 - but that's just us speculating. In any case, Android 4.4 2 KitKat and LTE connectivity also appear among the features of the new D855. 

Not long ago, we told you that another alleged G3 model, the LG D850, had an official UA profile, too. This one is still listing a 1440 x 2560 pixels screen.

Of course, the D855 might not be a G3 after all. That’s the problem with speculations: we can’t be sure of anything until official details are announced. Hopefully, we’ll find out everything there is to know about the LG G3 and all its versions on May 27.

I've been a Samsung phone guy for years but I've got to hand it to LG they're stepping up their game big time. Samsung could learn from LG on how to get maximum display while keeping overall phone size down. Keep up the good work LG!

Tradeoffs for water proofing.
Perfect example, Xperia Z1 and Xperia ZL

No need for a 2K Display, 1080p seems more than adequate for a 5.5" IPS Panel.
They'll beat everyone if they are able to incorporate a S805 Chip in the G3 as it will keep them in the battle for the long.

Seems like it's too soon for the S805 cpu. It seemed more likely that the S805 would be released in the fall. But who knows if they can manage to release the G3 with the S805. Unless the 1080p varient uses the S801 and the 1440p uses the S805 chip.

A 2K display, like that one of the G2, and a S801 on the G3 wouldn't offer much of an upgrade over the G2, similar upgrade to what we saw between the flagship phones of the fall of 2013 and the spring phones of 2014. A 2k display with a S805 would be a better upgrade for the G3, but the way LG can stand out and beat the rest of the OEM's is with a 2.5k display.

Hopefully a 1080p G3 would be a lower end model and not their flagship.

didn't they say the same when 1080p was introduced in the begining? It won't hurt, if the price is reasonable, I will welcome with arms wide open :)

Should come with a native resolution changing app.

I'm more excited about this possibility as long as the rest of the specs are top end. I don't look at my phone from 6 inches away from my eyeballs, and I'd rather have increased battery performance.

Probably LG G3 lite.

I have been speculating in a 1080p/16gb/2gb/SD801 version for people who don't want the latest and 1440p/32gb/3gb/SD805 for those who want the absolutely best.

I think it made sense if every major company follows Oppo when it comes to QHD display. They want to see which variant will sell better, I don't think that even PR guys are such stupid to think that everyone will throw his money at QHD display.

Vivo announced and released the first QHD phone, not Oppo...

I'm pretty excited to see what this phone will incorporate. I like LG's UI so I hope they get the hardware quality up. The G2 was amazing that I had other than the squeaky body.

Maybe there are going to be many version of the G3... But nevertheless our expectation on LG is very high, probably highest that it can get historically, so LG should be serious this time :).
