Time for teasing: LG shows some elements of the G3 in a brief video teaser

Time for teasing: LG shows some elements of the G3 in a brief video teaser
Just two weeks from now, on May 27, LG will announce its future flagship – the G3. As we already summarized in our rumor round-up, the much-anticipated device will probably flaunt a 5.5-inch LCD display with the spectacular resolution of 1440x2560 pixels, Snapdragon 801 SoC, and 3GB of RAM on board. Well, May 27 can't come soon enough.

In order to further tease us about its upcoming high-end device and probably build even more hype around it, LG just uploaded an official video teaser of the G3 on its YouTube channel. The teaser hints us that G3's camera will indeed sport optical image stabilization, just as rumored. Additionally, LG seemingly puts emphasize on the rear cover of the flagship. Although we can't say what the build material is, it appears that the cover will indeed have a brushed metal finish, which falls in line with the rumors we heard recently.

The video also seemingly confirms that users of the G3 will make use of LG's Knock Code, but that is a no-brainer, considering that the nifty feature is present on most of the company's devices of late.

Without further ado, you can check out LG's teaser for the G3 below.

I hope it's not like faux metal plastic like the Note 2 has.

Agreed, they have some style here not normally seen. This is only OEM non Nexus that has my attention. I hate half baked phones that need two releases.

With the LG and its QHD screen, it seems that if Apple doesn't have "RetinaHD" that more people will understand that Apple is truly behind the times. Apple's version of "retina" will look like VGA in comparison with LG's QHD.

Lg always, uses top soc at time in latest flagship. That's true since first soc hit 1ghz, this is not Samsung or HTC that have a clear history of that.

lol....Even Samsung releases the best SoC in its flagship at the time of release. Its just that Samsung releases its device much earlier then LG.

The note is a exception. Unless it's the defacto flagship now?

Nope, I wasn't referring to note. GS5 came out with SD801 which was the latest chip couple a months ago as SD805 didn't hit the production belt by then. GS4 had SD600 as SD800 wasn't released at the time of its launch. So based on the timing of their releases Samsung always the latest chips in its flagship this also includes note series.

Which is the flagship then, version one or two?

47. AfterShock

Posts: 4146; Member since: Nov 02, 2012

Forgot to poke/add that, You're correct the gs4 came firstly with a s600 then later with a s800. This is totally ignoring exynos, but is not focal point when talking about current mainstream snapdragon soc.

GS4 with SD800 wasn't globally released so I wouldn't really count that in the equation.

That was to complete with the G2. Like this GS5 V2 is to the G3. This begs, which then is flagship, V1 or V2 each year? Then is it only the one with no attached name like, Active, Prime, Camera etc. LG shall lose no shine to Samsung here, LG flagship use best available soc of year, released once a year. SS an HTC, take a couple runs at it. So what were you saying about SS always using best soc in their flagships? Right, then I gave you the answer, notes come with best of years soc, but galaxies do not.

Re-read your earlier post you never said 'best SoC of the year', you said 'top soc at time in latest flagship'. In that regard, SS does release its phone with the top SoC at the time of its launch. 'That was to complete with the G2.' - Again, how a phone which wasn't released globally can compete with an international phone ?! BTW, I don't think G3 will be GS5's competitor. With size they're going for Note 4 would be a better competitor to G3.

Actually the LG Optimus G Pro was the first phone announced, even before the Samsung galaxy s4, to have the Snapdragon 600 chipset. It also had smart screen and smart video. It was released 2 weeks before the S4, which leads me to believe that LG pioneered those features

Well they copy samsung in everything So yeah, since samsung uses the latest hardware .. they are doing the same.! And this copy thing is why I dont buy lg. I'll prefer a little less performing samsung handset over a good performing lg one just because it gives me satisfaction that I am not buying a knockoff !

America at its best..ignorance because of a brand name. I'm pretty sure samsung has copied off others plenty of times. Nothing has been set in stone yet so I don't see how they have copied anything when it hasn't been unveiled yet..which by the way it will most likely have a better thinner design than samsung phones. No I'm not a fan boy I have a gs5 that I'm typing this with right now.

I stopped reading your reply after the first line. I am NOT an american.:) Overconfidence at its best.! Where are you from btw?

Your nationality being unknown has nothing to do with overconfidence. Lol. I wasn't talking directly to you I was generalizing.

Targeting america is generalising.? Seriously. ?

75. skatrdie0

Posts: 37; Member since: May 09, 2014

Yes "targeting" America is generalizing . I'm talking about the general public so yeah I'm generalizing. If you want to take it Personal go ahead. You're only embarrassing yourself making statements about a phone that has no even been unveiled yet.

So only Samsung is allowed to use the best hardware? Is it copying if two OEMS decide to use the Snapdragon 801 in their latest flagship devices? Think about what you're saying.

73. TheGenius

Posts: 339; Member since: Mar 06, 2014

No .. hardware is just tip of the iceberg. You look at lg flagships and you'll find almost all apps or additional 'features' they have are copied from samsung.! Best example.? - smartstay, smart rotate, quick view flip covers aand many more.

LG was the first to utilise the smart video feature, so naturally they would also use "smart stay" because it's somewhat related to smart video. Just like samsung also started featuring smart video on their phones. LG also introduced the double capture feature for the camera where you can see both yourself and your subject. Samsung copied that as well.

Exactly. Ignorant samsung fanboys. I'm a samsung user and I have to say that this g3 is going to be killer I really enjoyed the g2. If you're worried about samsung's features being copied then go cry to them and tell them to patent them. I don't see why it matters it just betters all our smartphones. The g3 is definitely not going to be a knockoff of a samsung.

And they don't have smart rotate.

No no no. That is absurd. Do you thing Samsung is the only one to come up with such apps and additional features. All phones have their own kind. Be real .
