LG unleashes new G3 teaser, hypes up its 5.5" screen and awesome screen-to-size ratio



With numerous daily appearances in our news section (courtesy of all those enterprising leakers), the LG G3 is quickly becoming one of the hottest topics in the cell phone biz at the moment. We've practically seen it all: the design, the specs... there was even a recent leak that revealed what's hiding under the handset's removable back cover! However, it looks like LG finds teasing us truly enjoyable, as even after all of the hype that's already been built around the upcoming G3 — which is to be introduced on May 27 — the company has just posted yet another teaser video, making sure that its upcoming flagship doesn't escape our minds for a second.

The new video by LG focuses on the G3's larger-than-life, 5.5" display, and talks up the phone's impressive screen-to-size ratio. In the video, LG first asks users to picture typical phones with 5", 5.2" and 5.5" screens. At the same time, the video displays drawings of such handsets, but ones that appear considerably bulky, and having some pretty unattractively-wide bezels. Finally, after LG has made the point that things usually get quite chubby around the 5.5-inch mark, it redraws the phone to have bezels of much thinner type - suggesting that the LG G3 will exhibit a great screen-to-size ratio, just like its predecessor, the G2.

While the G2 had a 5.2" display, though, the G3 will obviously sport an even larger diagonal, at 5.5". We're very excited to see if the company has really managed to keep the phone's dimensions reasonable, considering the massive display! How about you - do you think that the LG G3 will live up to the great expectations and successfully challenge its fearsome rivals, such as the Galaxy S5, One (M8) and Xperia Z2?

Who really cares about the LG G3. Its only a 13 MP camera. a 801 Snapdragon processor. It has the same specs as the Oppo Find 7 which has a 2k display. What makes the LG G3 so special? Nothing! Just another over priced phone.

to be considered over-priced, don't you need a price first?

"Who really cares about the LG G3." I and as I see many other PhoneArena.com members cares about it. "...Oppo Find 7 which has a 2k display." As rumors says LG G3 also has 1440 x 2560 pixels screen. "What makes the LG G3 so special?" How much phones with LG G3 specifications do you know? Also do you know all features of LG G3? Also as expected LG G3 should be the most compact smartphone with 5.5" screen. "Just another over priced phone." Do you know the price?

LOL only 13mp camera? 13mp is more than enough did you not know it has optical & software image stabilization. Much more important. 801 is more than enough to power the screen unlike all the 805 nuts oppo find 7? please where the hell is the 2k oppo find 7 and the phone is huge. Cha you sound really dumb. The g3 is a phone from the year 2015 in 2014

why not just make the screen smaller in the first place? even completely bezelless, 5.5" would still be too big.

My thought exactly, why make screen bigger and go slim bezels. I think it would be much better if they kept the screen the same size at 5" and made the phone even smaller.

You forgot that nowadays there's this ongoing "Mini" variant craze all over the place, that's why.... we can thank Samsung for that...

Smartphones size are growing larger each year and I don't know when will this trend will stop. While human palms need hundreds of thousands of year to grow larger in evolution.

I find my Nexus 5 to be the sweet spot for me, it's not small but nor is it too big to make it unwieldy.. But anything larger than it? Meh.

13 megapixels! According to the leaks the S5 prime is going to have 20 from the leaks, regardless the regular s5 has more. It's just a leak, I will take it with a pinch of salt.

Gimmicky 2K resolution aside, it's just a OnePlus One at... twice the price !!!

So what that OnePlus One is cheap, can you easily purchase OnePlus One ? No!

By the time the LG3 is available, the OnePlus One will be readily available... and the Galaxy S5 Prime also.

"By the time the LG3 is available, the OnePlus One will be readily available..." First of all it is still just a speculation that OnePlus One will be released for masses! Also do you know how much OnePlus One will cost when (if) it will be released for masses? Do you know how much will cost LG G3 to compare price with OnePlus One price? Also LG G3 still will be more world wide available to purchase. Also as rumors says that LG G3 screen will be better. "...and the Galaxy S5 Prime also." What Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime has to do with your comment #11 ?

The OnePlus one can be $5 and it won't matter because you can't buy one.

Rumor has it that OnePlus will never make the One model in volume. It is just an Oppo marketing experiment.

OnePlus one is not actually a match for G3 but yes you can buy 1+1 OnePlus One at the same price

26. Desmortibus

Not that I am interested in buying any of them actually, but please do let me know CONCRETELY why the OnePlus One is no match for G3...

1) LG G3 will be more world wide available to purchase than OnePlus One. 2) LG G3 will have better customers and developers support. 3) As rumors says that LG G3 screen will be better than OnePlus One screen. 4) According to rumors LG G3 will be smaller than OnePlus One even that they both has 5.5" screens. There may be even more reasons...

Rumors say screen will be better? Come on, its a budget screen vs LGs top of the line and newest screen technology. Its going to be epically much better.

2k is not a gimmick. You can tell a huge difference in the picture quality over 1080p. Yes even in a 5.5" screen. Please stop spreading incorrect information like so many. You cant even buy a one +noone Also the one + one is larger and has just the bare bone features. The G3 is a true flagship
