LG is widely tipped to launch its LG G Pro 3 phablet later this year and ahead of the launch, several leaks have revealed the specs of LG’s upcoming flagship big-screen smartphone. Over the weekend, two leaks revealed the specs list of the G Pro 3 along with a feature that will have every tech lover salivating at the mouth.
The G Pro 3 is the successor to last year’s G Pro 2 phablet
If both reports are correct, the LG G Pro 3 will be equipped with a 6-inch display offering 1440 x 2560 pixels resolution (QHD), which works out to be a pixel density of 490 pixels per inch. The handset is expected to be one of a raft of devices powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 820 chipset and should include 4GBR AM, 32GB internal storage and a microSD card slot to expand the storage.
On the back, the LG G Pro 3 is expected to have a 20.7MP rear camera with laser autofocus, dual-LED flash and possibly the color spectrum sensor from the LG G4. Presumably, the handset will also include Optical Image Stabilisation and 4K video recording although this is yet to be confirmed. On the front, the LG G Pro 3 will have an 8MP camera, which should capture outstanding selfies and will be one of the highest on current flagship smartphones.
The G Pro 3 could be inspired by LG’s G4 flagship
The first G Pro 3 rumor suggested that LG would include a fingerprint scanner while the second rumor confirmed the fingerprint scanner before adding that the handset could also support pupil recognition. The addition of pupil recognition would make the G Pro 3 the first smartphone to support iris detection as manufacturers try different methods of providing smartphone security.
If these rumours are correct, the G Pro 3 will represent a significant upgrade over last year’s G Pro 2 with the G Pro 3 expected to have a better display, faster processor, fingerprint sensor, better camera, iris scanner and a lot more. While some manufacturers opt for incremental updates, LG is seemingly set to offer the best features possible in the G Pro 3, which is likely to cost $760 USD once it does launch before the end of the year.
