Hot on the heels of yesterday's leaked press renders of the LG G3
, we are now seeing the phone out and about for the first time, straight from the confines of the Korean subway system. Translation - someone is perusing the golden version of the G3
in a metro car, with what seems like a new Quick Cover
that has a large circular cutout, matching the new Optimus UI lock screen that we already saw
, and was confirmed by the official shots of LG's new tablet trio
The new lock screen sports precisely such a gigantic circle where the time, date, and other pertinent information, will be displayed when the Quick Cover you see in the picture is closed for added protection. One thing is for sure from these pics - the G3 is a largish handset, so the 5.5" Quad HD display
speculation seems primed to pan out. It certainly doesn't look like a phone you can use with one hand, unless you choose LG's Mini View software trickery that shrinks the interface to a section of the display, but that's the price to pay if you want a large screen on your handset, as we've come to realize in the last year or two.
Thanks for the tip!
