LG's G3 flagship smartphone seemingly pictured again

Here we have what’s believed to be a (not so great) new image of an LG G3 - you know, the upcoming flagship smartphone that’s supposed to be officially announced on May 27. The image was revealed moments ago by @evleaks, but it doesn’t come from one of his own sources, instead being obtained via a tip.

It appears that there’s a protective case around the G3 (or what’s believed to be the G3 anyway). The device that’s beneath the case certainly resembles what was previously presented as the LG G3, featuring very slim bezels around the screen, a rear camera with dual LED flash, plus a few buttons that are found on the back. Even with that case on, the handset seems to be pretty thin.

It’s believed that the G3 will be LG’s first smartphone to offer a Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display. Other features should include a quad-core Snapdragon processor (801, or maybe the 805 - who knows?), 3GB of RAM, and Android 4.4 KitKat with a new UI developed by LG.

Assuming that this is indeed the LG G3, do you like what you're seeing so far?

That's not what speakers looks like. I'll put you a picture of my M7 to show you how they look like. That looks more like a pager speaker tbh, or like that thing that was very cool some 25 years ago, that sang a little song every time you whistled or dropped your keys. ti di ti di ti di di di ...something like that.

You mean the holes in the front of the M7 and M8? Looks really weird to me, couldn't they found a better way to put them without ruining the beauty of the device?

I noticed that too. Definitely appears to be a stylus near the top of the phone. With the screen being 5.5" it definitely fits in the Phablet range.

Is it a 6 inch screen, or just another 5 inch screen? I mean if you are going to have super dee duper high res on the thing, you may as well make it with a man's size screen...

IMO, anything 5.5" and above would work well for QHD. Personally, I like the super dense pixels you get at 5.5" :)

Yea I hope they don't do that, I don't care if it's QHD but they shouldn't make it a phablet just for the resolution. They need to make this thing like 5 inches max so it appeals to a wider audience and sells enough to put LG on the map in a bug way, otherwise we'll have to depend on Samsung which has its eyes set on becoming the Apple of Android.
