LG G3 comes in two different variants: LG D850 and LG D851
Big news for LG fans, it seems the company will announce not one, but two different variants of the LG G3. The two variants are pretty similar to the LG model revealed earlier in some leaks (the D855). Now we’re talking about the D850 and the D851.
Both devices are 5.76 inches tall and 2.94 inched wide, which confirms the theory that the two devices are versions of the same smartphone. According to the FCC database, the LG D850 can run on LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7, and 17, while the LG D851 supports LTE bands 2, 4, 7, and 17. It’s also said the smartphones have removable batteries, unlike the LG G2.
Not much was known about the LG G3, but it was rumored that the device would feature a QHD display with a 2560×1440 resolution, 3GB RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There were more rumors suggesting the smartphone will also support a microSD card for memory expansion. Regarding its hardware the LG G3 is supposed to have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and a 3200 mAh battery on board. It’s been also rumored that the smartphone will be supporting Android 4.4.2 KitKat with a new refined UI.
The back of the phone will probably be made of brushed aluminum, so not only will the G3 be a very good looking device, but it might have enough features to compete with the flagship smartphones already on the market, and with those who have not been launched yet.
Of course, we’ll know for sure if all the rumors are true in a week from now, when the devices will be revealed in the US. The two “new” smartphones have just been added to the FCC database, and considering LG was going to announce the LG G3 on May 27th, there’s no doubt the D850 and the D851 are two different variants of the most expected LG flagship.
It would definitely be hard to choose which device would be this year’s great flagship now that LG comes with two smartphones instead of one in order to compete with devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and the already popular HTC One M8. The smartphone market is already filled with incredible devices, so will the LG smartphones be the flagships we expect them to be?
