We now have an official confirmation for the LG G3 release date. After months of speculations regarding the launch of the next-gen LG flagship smartphone, the South Korean company finally revealed when they will release the successor of the LG G2.
LG has started sending out the invites for the G3 launch. The new smartphone will be officially unveiled during press events that will be held on May 27 in 6 cities around the world. We’ve seen both Samsung and HTC introducing their flagships in dual events, but LG’s going big this time. LG G3 launch events will be held in London, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Istanbul and Seoul.
The press invite reads “To be simple is to be Great” with the emphasis on the G. Even though it doesn’t mention anything about the LG G3 we have no doubt that this is what the press even is going to be about. The name of LG G3 has been recently mentioned in one of the company’s press releases where they presented their financial results for Q1 2014.
Recent leaks have shown that the LG G3 will come with a completely new design, also revealing that the rear-mounted keys are here to stay.
Hardware-wise, the LG G3 is expected to sport a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) display, 13 MP or higher camera with OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilization), and a 3,000 mAh battery.
The LG G3 will most likely run Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, of course customized with LG’s proprietary Optimus UI. We are eager to see what new software features the Koreans will introduce this time.
