LG has launched its G3 smartphone this week, providing a successor to last year’s LG G2. The ‘G’ prefix is used for LG’s premium devices.
Running Android on a Qualcomm quad-core processor, the LG G3 has a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 pixel (538ppi) display. There’s a 13 megapixel rear-facing camera with ‘laser auto-focus’, a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
Customers in South Korea are able to buy the phone from this week; worldwide availability will follow. LG’s G3 is being sold in a choice of five colours: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red.
Dr Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company, said “The smartest innovation in a fast evolving smartphone market is creating harmony between advanced technology and a simplified user experience. LG G3 is the result of our effort to actualize that idea into a tangible product. And we are extremely pleased with the result.”
