LG G3 Screenshot Leaked, Could Pack In A QHD (2560 x 1600 Pixels) Display

By April 10th, 2014 AT 9:59 AM

LG missed out on releasing a flagship Android smartphone in the same cycle as the Sony Xperia Z2, Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8. But they are preparing the successor of LG G2 for a May 17th release as per rumours. The only details that are kind of available right now are that it will feature a 5.5 inch QHD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution screen and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor.

The leaked screenshot shows off LG’s new flat UI for Android, moving in a direction away from current overly skeumorphic one, a path taken by Apple, Samsung, HTC and many others. Also, there are no on-screen buttons on the leaked screenshot. It also appears that someone in Bangalore has the access to the device. This screenshot was found on a Dutch website (LGG3KOpen.NL).

Computer science engineer turned technology blogger. Following consumer electronics industry closely from 2006, he can now predict pretty much where the market is heading. He has a dream to own Android, Windows Phone and iOS smartphones all at the same time.

This uses MT6595 processor and consists of 2.2–2.5 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A17 and 1.7 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 (ARM big.LITTLE with GTS)

There is also chance that LG will use it’s own SOC called Odin, which is an octa-core chip that is based on based on ARM’s big.LITTLE architecture and uses four Cortex-A15 and four Cortex-A7 cores

*Believing you I did some research and the only website to showcase this is gizmo china. *First of all mediatek chipsets dont stand against Qualcomm chipsets in terms of quality and that’s a well known fact. *Secondly Qualcomm chipsets have inbuilt modems which support LTE much better than mediatek chipsets. *In all possibility a Snapdragon 805 would make more sense on a flagship like G3 raher than a MT6595. *Apart from all this is the fact that LG was last year rumored to develop its own octa-core processor codenamed odin and if LG really wants a octa core processor in… Read more »

The UI looks better than the previous LG devices.. I myself own an Optimus L5,but I never liked its UI.. Hope LG can make this a hit with decent specs at a decent price.. What say, @Rama?

*I really think that a resolution of 2560×1600 is not required in a smartphone display.Its totally insane!!. *According to me a Full HD screen or a HD screen is more than enough for a smartphone.See basically more resolution on a smaller screen means more pixel density and more pixel density means clearer pictures but beyond a certain pixel density the human eye cannot distinguish between picture quality. *The disadvantage of having such a display is that since its just a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600 which results in a very high pixel density of 500+ ppi(may be)… Read more »

@Rama +1 I totally agree with you. But the Oppo Find 7 too comes with same res right? I found not much lags on LG’s UI (Optimus L5, 4.1.2) . But now it doesnt matter to me because I am always on a Custom ROM (right now making an AOKP 4). However, for L5, the problem with Custom ROMs (Kitkat) is that Cell Standby is taking a lot of juice and overnight drain comes upto 9%. BTW, Rama, Connecting USB on Moto G doesnt show up any battery bugs.. The only thing is that, battery drain is still present when… Read more »

*Yes but the Oppo Find 7 comes with super-fast charging capabilities too that can charge the device from 0 to 75% in just 30 minutes.So the battery problem gets solved over there 🙂 but I am not sure if LG will bring the same. *Apart from that every manufacturer has his own market of target. For example take Apple which has been concentrating only on the premium segment and hence they dont run blindly behind specs and dont add cores to their processors or gigs to their rams or pixels to their displays with every iteration.Instead an iphone does the… Read more »
