Rumor: LG G Flex 3 coming next March with 6-inch QHD glass, SD-820, fingerprint scanner
A new rumor regarding the specs for the next iteration of the LG G Flex series has been circulating. As usual, with a rumor of this magnitude, we suggest you quickly pop over to the kitchen pantry and score yourself a grain of salt to take this story with. According to this speculation, the LG G Flex 3 is going to be unveiled in March 2016. And yes, that is more than seven months away.

Because the phone won't be unveiled until March, the device is rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 820 chipset. According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, Qualcomm's new top-of-the-line chipset won't ship until December, and thus won't be found in any devices until the rumored March launch of the Xiaomi Mi 5. But this time frame does allow the Snapdragon 820 to be used in the LG G Flex 3. The currently available LG G Flex 2 happens to have the Snapdragon 810 chipset inside. One researcher has already said that there is no overheating threat with the newer chip.

The LG G Flex 3 is said to feature a 6-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. 4GB of RAM will be inside, along with 32GB of expandable storage. The back to front camera combo weighs in at 20.7MP/8MP and a fingerprint scanner is embedded in the home button.

Obviously we have plenty of time for more leaks before LG reveals its intentions with the next LG G Flex model. Just make sure you have enough salt on hand.

Thanks for the tip!

Considering its harder and more expensive to make a curved display than a conventional one, one would expect the curve to serve a purpose other than aesthetics.

I think they've mentioned it makes looking at videos feel more immersive?

If you want a GIANT phone, just buy a TABLET and a SMARTWATCH. (shaking my head at the stupidity)

I suppose if you have the hands of a young girl, big phone aren't good for you. If you're like me and your hands are huge though, big phones are great.

When you flip it on its side and watch video that way, it is said to have the advantages of those curved television screens. And I thought the flex is flexible, as in you can bend it a little without breaking it?

Yes it does a lot. The phone is more durable since is curve, very difficult for your phone to break. Great phone to watch video. It feels like is a curve TV. Bend, good grip when holding the device. Feel small in hand since is curve. Overall the immense curve actually do a lot. Had my g flex 1 for 2 year now very good fone.. Wanted to get the flex 2 but it size turn me off. Looking forward for the flex 3 if the size is 6inch not 5.5

2016 killer features will be 4k display, iris scanner, mongoose custom cores( about 85000 on benchmark ), auto-eject stylus, full video editing camera capabilites, large battery capacities (over 4000 mah) , 64GB standard internal memory. 》》 NOTE 6 , I can see you .:P

Why are you posting about a 2016 Q3/4 phone from Samsung when the article is about a 2016 Q1 phone from LG? Makes no sense.

makes sense in that ...it's worth the wait than the flex 3... a more powerhouse

128GB is standart for Q3 next year flagship i guess, and 256GB storage will come 4k will be too much, and drain battery really fast, because GPU processing fast more pixel than 2k, especially on gaming. but maybe i'll change my opinion after seeing one, like when heard 2k on S6.. at first i think it will look same with 1080p, but after i saw S6 screen, its really beauty :D

I highly doubt LG is going back to buttons on their flagships. If there will be fingerprintsensor, it will sit in the power button or under the front glass.
