LG G3 with a 16 MP camera appears in a Sprint user agent profile

LG G3 with a 16 MP camera appears in a Sprint user agent profile
The user agent profile of LG G3 (LG-LS990) for Sprint is the gift that keeps on giving. After informing us on the set of applications we can expect from the handset, now the eventual hardware specifications have been shown, straight from the Sprint website.

The G3's UAProfile clearly lists the expected Quad HD 1440x2560 pixels display resolution, but as far as memory and rear camera resolution go, Sprint's model deviates from the rumors we've heard so far. The LS990 handset is shown with 2 GB of RAM, instead of the 3 GB that we are expecting, and 32 GB of internal memory, in addition to a microSD slot that supports 64 GB cards.

When it comes to the main camera, however, the surprise is rather pleasant, as it shows that the Sprint version of the G3 could be equipped with a 16 MP shooter, instead of the 13 MP unit we've heard so far. It's not the first time we are hearing that LG might put a 16 MP rear camera in the G3, but so far most of the rumors have been for a 13 MP sensor, so different regions might get a different camera piece. Hopefully this higher-resolution camera will also come with the excellent OIS+ image stabilization technology that LG put in the 13 MP G Pro 2.

So because they've put a 16mp camera on the G3 that means they're copying Samsung? By that logic does that mean everyone who puts a 16mp camera on their phone s copying Samsung? Does that mean that Samsung is copying Sony by waterproofing their phone? Or copying Motorola and Apple by using a fingerprint scanner? Or is Samsung copying BlackBerry, Apple and every other maker of a instant messaging/messaging client?

I am talking about lg... they always try to follow the foot steps of samsung... look at their UI, its all altered version of touchwiz... by the way, I am not using the word copy bcoz I dont think its a right word... if so called copy can provide us a better product then let it be... I want good options n a good phone regardless of whatever you name it, copy or whatever... but regardless of any argument/justification LG do follow the foot steps of samsung

As does Samsung with most everyone else. Most notably, the company I despise. Apple.

Perhaps you were absent the day Samsung admitted to copying Apple. In court. Look, I'm no Samsung hater(even though Samsung fanboys are now just as bad as Apple and WP fanboys), but the truth is the truth and fact is fact.

Samsung didnt admitted, they said it is marketing which made them famous... can you copy paste the statement in which samsung admitted?? if they had admitted then case is closed, pay 2.2billion then

What rock have you been living under? Lol Samsung Admitted in the first trial to copying Apple. They just disputed the price in which Apple said the patents are worth.

It still lists 4160x3120 as highest resolution which sounds weird. Also too bad about the ram.

That resolution is for back camera for 4k. GS5 and Z1 are recording 4k with no problems inspite of 2GB ram.

No, 4k resoltion 3840x2160. It also has nothing to do with RAM either, it is done by the ISP.

So. The fact that Kit Kat was optimized for phones with under 1 GB of RAM would also lead one to believe that the need for 3 GB of RAM isn't so great with 4.4. Why is it that everyone is so down on 2 GB if the need for crazy amounts of RAM has been addressed? You don't see the M8 or GS5 both with 2 GB of RAM being so bogged down they run rough. All reviews I've seen say the M8 runs glass smooth. Also not to overlook the fact that the Nexus 5 also has 2 GB of RAM. I'm not talking from some stance that you never need 3 GB. Hell I have a Note 3 with 3 GB and Kit Kat. Needless to say I've never seen a slowdown..... But at the same time I've never seen a slowdown on my buddies Nexus 5s either.

You speak as though the optimization of KitKat makes apps magically need less ram, its the android core that needs less. Also its not about what works today, its about making it futureproof. Most steps in specs arent because they are needed at the moment, but because they will be needed in the future.

What applications require 3 GB of RAM? In fact, which applications require 2 GB of RAM? Apple is still making their devices with 1 GB of RAM and Android shares many of the same applications and games with iOS. Considering that most customers replace their devices in a 2-3 year time span, I would say that this would be more than adequate for the next two years.

Open up a few apps and then open up some tabs in Firefox. You will see why 3GB is really good to have. Android OS may take a little less RAM, but the apps don't take any less RAM. I think it is misleading marketing on the part of Google that KitKat is some sort of RAM savior. It helps a little, but doesn't save 1GB of memory. And that extra 1GB is very nice when you multitask.

2GB is enough and 4160x3120 means that it's going to be 13MP.

2GB is enough for kitkat but 3GB would have been better.

If their G3's back buttons are like what they did with Isai, I might consider it.

LG makes one of the best phones but the phone is ruined by their ui.....please LG change you ui, make it light and less cartoonish a

I like lg g2 ui. I especially like how you can click to add icons to homepage instead of having to drag each icon to the homepage. It's much more efficient. And the g2's ui is much more minimal than say touchwiz which makes it run much smoother. It doesn't look like a cartoon to me at all. I think they've done a good job with it and it will continue to get refined.

Any idea which frequencies/bands the G3 will support? Namely 700 mhz Band 12?
