Last weekend, the LG G3 was no stranger to the world. We saw the alleged beast in white, black with a case, and again in white with a case. Then we saw it with the display on. Now we have another look at the G3 covered by a case, but this time the image is of very good quality.
On the front we are looking at an incredibly slim bezel, something LG is no stranger to. Again, there are no physical buttons on the front or sides. Everything is on the back. Below the camera is a refined volume key/power button setup. Could it support a fingerprint sensor? Maybe.
To one side of the camera is the flash and the other side has an unknown component. Some say this is the IR blaster, and that could be true given the LG G Flex has it on the back.
LG officially released the LG Isai via KDDI in Japan yesterday. The smartphone is supposed to be a KDDI exclusive for that market. Historically LG’s Japanese phone releases have been a precursor to the release of new flagship devices around the world. Many people are expecting that to be the case again and are looking at the LG Isai to be a good indication of what the LG G3 will look like and what hardware will be included when released.
According to LG, the forthcoming LG G3 and the LG Isai are “completely different” products. Despite that claim, comparing images of the LG Isai to leaked images of the LG G3 reveal devices that appear to be very similar. That probably means the hardware is similar as well, like the 5.5-inch QHD display of the LG Isai.

The LG G3 has leaked again folks, this time in a gold paint job. As you can see, the images confirm what we have already seen, which is a very thin bezel along with a redesign of the rear button layout. However, there is one more new thing that we can share with you that the tipster also shared.
That thing to the left of the camera lens is not an IR blaster, nor is it a heart rate monitor. It’s some sort of “laser beam” that will be used for night shots. Unfortunately we don’t know anymore than that. The tipster did say the camera is going to be the focal point (no pun intended) of the device and confirmed a 13MP rear shooter along with OIS+.
One more image of the front of the device after the break.
While some thought that LG would be releasing the G3 as the first QuadHD (QHD) phone, they’ve gone in a different generation. First leaked by evleaks, the LG Isai FL was slated for Japan and KDDI and the company doesn’t disappoint as it has launched the LG Isai FL — the first QHD device solely for Japanese markets — and while it’s not the G3 it does shed some light on what to expect with LG’s 2014 flagship.
Waiting for the LG G3 to be announced on May 27? We are, too. So this should make our mouths water even more. LG just announced a new 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD panel for smartphones. Clearly this is going to be the display technology LG opts to use in its upcoming flagship device.
The exact resolution comes in at 2560×1440 pixels and this is four times higher than your standard high definition display. Aside from being extremely crisp and clear, LG’s QHD LCD display will be very thin and have a narrow bezel. This fits perfectly with LG’s thin bezel design language.
Hit the break for the full press release.
Last week, the specs of the LG G3 were leaked, but the processor wasn’t mentioned. Today we get a new leak that confirms most of what we saw last week , but the processor is revealed.
Let’s start with what specs were already leaked – a 5.5-inch QHD (2560 x 1440) display, 2GB (16GB model) or 3GB of RAM (32GB model), microSD for expanded storage, 13MP rear camera with OIS+, 3,000 mAh battery, and a rear speaker that delivers 1W of power.
While the LG L90 is heading to T-Mobile and MetroPCS without any special name, it looks like it will carry a different name on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. With those two carriers, the handset will be known as the LG Volt. The image above was leaked by @evleaks and shows the Boost Mobile variant in black and the Virgin Mobile in white.
LG may finally be choosing a premium material for a flagship device, much like HTC does with its One (M8). The image above leaked earlier this morning and it is a closeup of the alleged LG G3 donning a metal backside. This would make sense at LG’s invitation for its May 27 event features a brushed aluminum background with an engraved message.
Today T-Mobile is supposedly rolling out the KitKat OTA update for their LG G Flex device. Problem is, is it even KitKat? According to the source link below, it shows Android 4.2.2 as the software. At first I thought it may just be a typo, but the file size is a mere 149MB’s. Seems a little low considering the G2′s KitKat file was about 1.5GB’s in total. Of course, these are just my speculations. Also, it seems users from XDA are reporting that the update has been pulled with no reason given.
If you have a T-Mobile G Flex, have you gotten the update notification today? And if so, is it KitKat?
Verizon has taken the LG-L70 and re-branded it into the LG Optimus Exceed 2. The device is available for pre-paid customers and comes in at just $79.99 without a contract. As for specs, the Exceed 2 comes with a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU with 1GB of RAM paired with 4GB’s of native storage, although that’s expandable via an SD card slot. The device also comes with a 4.5-inch display with a resolution of 800 x 480. With the Exceed 2, you can expect some of the features that are on LG’s flagships such as the QSlide, Quick Memo and even their much popular Knock Code unlock system.
