Purported first photo sample from LG G3 surfaces, you be the judge

Then a fella by the handle of “Geek” shared his two cents. Stating that a friend of his was testing the LG G3 for a carrier and was on the receiving end of a couple pictures from that device. He shared one of the pictures, ostensibly of his friend’s cat, to show what might be coming this summer.
The EXIF data shows LG-D972 as the camera model. Based on some model numbers we caught wind of in January, maybe this D972 number is legitimate to consider for the upcoming LG G3, but we are not 100% sure. However, the model number does not line up with anything in LG’s current stable of devices. We tried zooming in on one of the cat's eyes to see if we could catch the reflection, and thus a glimpse of the device, to no avail.
“Geek” shared that the camera that took the picture is nearly identical to the sensor on the new LG G Pro 2, 13MP with optical image stabilization. He also noted that we would see the G3 "probably" in July. That information does not jive with some data that came out of Korea, but just like this image, the rest is anyone's guess.
What a picture too, the dimensions are 4160 x 2342, and the level of detail is outstanding. If this is the G3, it may very well add to the hype that have some outlets talking about it being a Galaxy S5 killer. Click on the image to get the full resolution.
Thanks for the tip Hans!

Nokia has the worst camera software interface I've ever seen, it's soooo complicated that it makes Samsung's camera interface look like iPhone camera interface. Hate Nokia and their BS products, hope they close down

It's call advance interface, not complicated. Have you ever used? They have good and quality interface. Nokia not going to close down buddy. It will rise again - wait and watch, And that's my words.

Actually they have Nkolsen, go on youtube and watch pro photographers using them for short films, national geographic shoot, and more. But i understand Nkolsen when your mobile phone is severely inadequate

Never understood why people wish a company to fail and reduce competition. Competition drives innovation and advances technology in many industries. Kill competition and you'll have the cable industry. No competition, high prices, and crap product.

I definitely would not buy the G2 now. Either wait for the G3 to come out (which will almost certainly be better than the S5) or wait for the G3 to come out and THEN buy the G2 when it will be reasonably discounted.

the g2 is already a good device. if they will be using the same 13MP sensor in the g3 and you are looking for something that take great photos, the g2 should be enough. you may only need software updates to improve camera performance.
