LG to launch the G3, the last big flagship of the season, on May 27
It’s been a busy couple of months in the Android world, with flagship smartphone releases from most of the big names in the industry, but also from a couple of promising newcomers. The last to join the party will be LG’s G3, due for a public introduction on May 27.
LG just sent out invitations for simultaneous media events scheduled for May 27 in San Francisco, New York, and London. Three other events will take place the next day in Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul, and, while the invitation itself doesn’t explicitly mentions the G3, the scale of the event leaves no doubt that we’re indeed going to see LG’s new hero device.
The G2 launched in August 2013, so LG is accelerating its release schedule this year, but that’s no surprise, as sources have indicated the G3 would land in May from back in January. The Korean company is likely trying to make the most of the spring season, which was dominated by Samsung and HTC in past years.
The LG G3 might be late to the party, but when it eventually lands, it will do so in style. Rumors mention a Quad HD display and a gold color option. Leaked product shots tell us that the G3 will sport LG’s signature rear-mounted power and volume buttons, and, if past iterations are a clue, we expect some very thin bezels on the front.
