LG G3 specs and features 'leaked' via LG Netherlands’ product page

Thanks to an 'accidental' leak from LG Netherlands, we know have an even better idea of what to expect from the LG G3.
May 26, 2014

Tomorrow is LG’s big day, at least if there’s anything left to announce. Earlier today we took a peek at the Sprint LG G3, and now a new (massive) leak gives us an even more detailed look at what to expect from the G3.

This leak comes from a somewhat surprising source, LG itself. Apparently someone at LG Netherlands made an “oh-uh” and published the LG G3’s product page early, complete with a list of specs and some details about new software features.

Many of the spec details aren’t exactly shocking, considering they match just about everything we knew from earlier leaks and reports. As a recap, the G3 features a 5.5-inch display with an impressive 2560×1440 resolution, there’s also a Snapdragon 801 CPU, 13MP camera with OIS, a 3000mAh battery and dimensions of 146.3 x 74.7 x 8.9mm.

Interestingly enough, LG’s information does differ in a few areas. First, the handset only has 2GB of RAM according to LG Netherlands. There’s also only 16GB storage. Of course, it’s possible that there are multiple configurations, depending on the region.

LG’s leak also clears up what that little black spot on the other side of the camera lens is. As it turns out, this is a laser that is designed to provide quick, accurate auto-focusing. This is a “first” not only for LG, but for any smartphone out there.


Software goodies highlighted

Although the product page doesn’t tell us everything about the LG G3’s software, it does clear a few things up here as well. First, it seems that you’ll get tips based on the status of your phone. This includes alerts suggesting that you uninstall apps you haven’t used in ages, notifications based on locations and more. Not only does this sound a bit like Google Now, it also seems to match up the previous rumor claiming LG was preparing a “concierge-like” service for the LG G3.


Some of the other software changes include updated camera software with a Touch & Shoot mode that removes unnecessary controls from the interface, a Quick Circle feature for putting your six most-used apps in a convenient spot and a revamped keyboard.

Bottom-line, LG has plenty in store for us tomorrow, and hopefully that includes at least a few surprise features that haven’t be disclosed to us yet. So how about it, excited for the LG G3 yet?
