LG G3 to come with Snapdragon 805, 3200 mAh battery, and 13 MP Sony sensor with OIS+, claims insider
Those Snapdragon 801-laden LG G3 rumors must have been of prototype devices, while the real slim shady will be arriving with a Snapdragon 805 processor, according to the latest tip. Let's not forget that Qualcomm itself mentioned not long ago that the first device with an 805 chipset will be arriving in May, so the G3 seems like a prime candidate. 

The insider claims that LG will be going all out with the specs of the G3, putting a 5.5" Quad HD (1440x2560 pixels) panel, Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3 GB of RAM, while the phone itself will still be made out of polycarbonate. Their specs source is the phone's repository, which has also divulged that the G3 will come with 32 GB of internal memory out of the box, as well as a microSD card slot for storage expansion. Last, but not least, the phone is said to house a rather generous 3200 mAh battery pack, which should result in some good backup power for the extra resolution and appetite of the Quad HD display. The insider mentioned that this battery will be joined by improved power management, hopefully along the lines of the Lucid Logic's tech found in the Galaxy S5.

LG will apparently be using the same 13 MP Sony IMX124 Exmor RS sensor that is in the OnePlus One, if the source is to be believed. It comes with an f/2.0 aperture, which means good performance in low-light conditions on theory, and, judging from the OnePlus One samples, the results are pretty decent indeed. The tipster also confirms that the camera will be on the same suspension mechanism that is in the G Pro 2, called OIS+. The optically-stabilized module will thus be able to produce super-steady video footage, and keep the shutter open for a longer time when it gets darker. All of these claims will be put to the test very soon, as the LG G3 is expected to be unveiled at a global event starting May 27th, which will take place in spots as diverse as Istanbul and New York.
