LG G3 photos and specs accidentally leaked by LG itself

Tomorrow is the official launch day of the LG G3. So why then has the company decided to publish all photos and specifications a day before? LG Netherlands are the offending leakers and have taken the page down, but not before Android Authority managed to pull all the details we’ve listed below:

  • 5.5″ display
  • 2560×1440 resolution
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB internal memory (no other sizes were mentioned but there could be other models)
  • Snapdragon 801 CPU
  • 13MP OIS camera
  • A-GPS with Glonass
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Android 4.4
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Dimension of 46.3×74.7×8.9mm

And the greatest mystery of the LG G3, a black dot to the left of the camera, turns out to be an auto-focus laser. This is the first time we’ve heard of this innovation and despite most smartphones boasting an auto-focus features, the LG G3 will be forerunner of this interesting new hardware feature. There are a bunch of special software features and a circular protective case which holds one of six QuickCircle apps (call log, dialler, music player, messages, clock, settings). That laser-focus camera has now been dubbed “Touch and Shoot” and the dual-LED flash should capture night-time shots without whiting-out the entire scene.

Other cool features include a new slim, adjustable keyboard that can be dragged up and down for resizing, a wireless charging stand, metal casing (with a removable battery), a speaker with Boost Amp, “smart notifications”, Knock Code and even new file management features. This is the last leak before the phone launches so enjoy being a little more knowledgeable than any other LG phone fan, at least for one more day.
