LG G2 features all-gesture controls, various camera modes and HD display. But with the non-stop improvements in mobile devices, LG may release a successor called G3 for 2014. As an early look, here are the killer features LG may sport on G3.
Reports claim that LG G3 will have 2K display resolution or 2560 x 1440 pixels on its 5.3 to 5.5 inch display screen. LG may remain to use True-HD IPS LCD display type for wider viewing angles, improve pixel density and install Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for better scratch protection.
Although LG G3 may not sport the upcoming Qualcomm 64-bit processors, reports suggest that LG could use Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.5 GHz with four-cores. RAM chipset features 2 to 3 GB capacity, internal storage of up 32 GB and microSD card slot that supports up to 128 GB storage.
New Camera Technology
The LG G2?s rear camera is not so bad, but it does not feature an Optical Image Stabilisation unlike with the Nexus 5. Rumours claim that LG G3 will have 16 MP camera with OIS module and various additional camera modes on top of default G2 features such as stereo sound recording and video stabilisation
Like with HTC and Sony, some reports suggest a possible turn for LG to add dual front-facing speakers to improve audio experience. Additional sound modifications may also come from Dolby mobile sound enhancement software.
IP certification seems to be a growing trend after Sony used it for their Xperia flagship smartphones and recently by Samsung on Galaxy S5. Although HTC One 2014 did not have ingress protection, some rumours believe that LG G3 may feature IP 67, similar protection found on Galaxy S5.
Depending on the release date, LG G3 may either have Android 4.4.3 KitKat or Android 4.5. Google is yet to unveil next-generation Android in June and possible to be released by the following month. In any case, LG may simply release a firmware update to bring latest features of Android to G3.
In the United States, LG launched G2 to AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon, which we can also expect on G3. Additionally, LG G2 has been made available in Europe and Asia via local stores.
LG G3 is not the only smartphone coming out from the company due to their close working relationship with Google. LG is also expected to co-create and launch the upcoming Nexus 6 smartphone for 2014.
