Latest LG G3 renders show a new, simple lock screen

Latest LG G3 renders show a new, simple lock screen
LG is all set to officially announce its G3 flagship smartphone on May 27, but, until then, it seems like the company just can’t stop the leaks that keep on revealing new images of the device. 

Yesterday, we received several press renders showing the G3 in black (or is that dark grey?), silver, and gold. Not long after that, a couple of alleged live photos of the unannounced smartphone were spotted in Korea. And now we get to see the G3 once more, this time in a few images that reveal its lock screen - which looks clean and quite nice.

The new images were published by @evleaks, who added an interesting detail about the mysterious sensor that's positioned on the left side of the G3’s rear camera. This is supposed to be a “laser auto focus” sensor. We’re not quite sure how that works, but we’ll find out later this month. The rear camera also has a dual LED flash, and Optical Image Stabilization Plus.

The LG G3 reportedly features a 5.5-inch display with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels. Despite the size of the screen, the handset seems to be relatively compact, thanks to the fact that it has very thin bezels. 

Until now, pretty much everything about the G3 seems great. But, of course, we'll have to wait until we can get our hands on it to be sure of its greatness.

Update: We added another image that shows the smartphone's front, back, bottom, and left side.

I really hate the fact that it has a 5.5" inch display ! one handed use of flagship is an extinct practice

Z1 Compact... comes to mind... hopefully the next one has better build quality though and Moto X

Even though the Z1 Compact is available, I reckon he was thinking more along the lines of something like the Moto X

Z1 is near perfect for a compact except the 4.3" screen in a 5" body.

Well that is a complete exaggeration... My Xperia Acro S is almost exactly the same size (but thicker) and it is average for a 4.3". It is near Galaxy S2. There is no 5" screen phone at the size of the Z1 Compact. Even the ZL is closer to a 4.7~4.5" body.

Yes i was exaggerating a little but the screen is small for the size of the "compact" considering the lg g2 mini has a 4,7" screem compard to 4.3" which is a huge difference.

Well the G2 mini is not on the same league of specs... Specially the water proofing

"One-Handed Mode" makes it easy to use one-handed for text and passwords. Condenses the keyboard down to bottom-right or bottom-left of the screen.

I really love the fact that it has 5.5" inch display.... reading, media viewing, user handling will be good

if G3 have the same dimension as S4 then it wouldn't be any problem, you can use it one handed operation unless your palm are so small.

At 5.5 inches it couldn't have the same dimensions

If it turns out to be a premium built device (as it looks) then this device will change everything for LG. This is best looking device till date no doubt about that. I wish them good luck for this device. Also keeping an eye on Premium S5 & Note 4

I'd rather use 2 hands with a big screen than 1 hand with a small screen. And that's speaking from experience when I had the iPhone 5s for 2 months. I started getting the shakes and had to switch back to the Note series and Android. Don't miss the iPhone and iOS one bit. But this is my opinion and I do feel that people should be given a smaller Android flagship choice with the same hardware detail (I also feel the same with having both a smaller and larger iPhone). It's not my place to tell you what you should and shouldn't buy size wise. I even understand now that people prefer Apple and that's fine. But even with a 4.x release for the past 2 years I'm still happy with Android over what the competition has to offer.

I agree and in a perfect word there should be 2 sizes for each model. It shouldn't drop specs and be called a mini. I personally like iOS but 4" is kinda small. Let's see if the iPhone 6 gets bigger. A lot of rumors but I never believe until it's released. Heard rumors before for bigger iPhone but never released. If it doesn't then I would love for the sony Xperia 2 to come to the US.

if the Oneplus One was a 5 inch screen, it would be perfect.

Exactly... The G2 is still the smallest of the big screen phones. The G3 looks like it is gonna be a faux metal plastic affair. A bit gaudy IMO. The bezels look the same as the G2, worse at the bottom from the looks of things. Unlike the iPhone, the HTC, Z2 or even the Nexus, the G2 seemed to lack this 'omnibalance' symmetry in their design. The G3 looks worse in this regard too.

With Snapdragon 801 it cant be, but with 805 definitely.

It all depends of it's size, if it has 5.5" screen with the same size of the Z2 or even smaller then yeah I can see it being the best alongside the Note 4, if it is bigger then we are talking about a phablet and then the Z2 will be the best imo.

Z3 or M8 prime or G3 prime or S5 prime.

Google Hologram Autofocus, Sony uses it for some of their DSLR.

Yes you are right and if i'm not mistaken Sony DSC-F707 is the first camera with a laser hologram AF And this is Sony's patent on the hologram

I still keep my DSC-F717. The hologram AF works great in full darkness and relatively long distance. WOW effect is huge.
