The LG G3 has been finally announced. The powerful smartphone will be available starting July

After months of speculations, the LG G3 is finally here, bringing upgrades to the hardware but leaving fashionable features behind. The LG G3 is a simple but powerful device, with a spectacular design. The follow-up model to the last year’s LG G2 has been announced and its final specifications have been revealed. This has been probably the worst kept secret in the smartphones industry, but maybe it was just a marketing strategy, who knows? If you thought you knew everything about the LG G3 during the past days, just before its launch, you are wrong.  The co-held event in London and New York City was a success and major upgrades on the new device were unveiled and explained.

Final specifications:

  • 5.5 inch screen
  • 2560 x 1440 pixel display / 3.686 million pixels
  • 538 ppi and 11 million sub-pixels
  • 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 16 GB / 32 GB internal storage
  • 3000 mAH battery
  • NFC and Bluetooth 4.0
  • 13 MP camera + optical image stabilization and laser autofocus
  • 2 MP front facing camera
  • Scratch-resistant, polycarbonate metallic skin / plastic
  • Color options: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet, Burgundy Red
  • Android 4.4.2 KitKat
  • Smart Keyboard and Smart Notice (the software learns each user’s habits)
  • Knock Code security function / Content Lock / Kill Switch
  • Quick Circle Case compatible

The smartphone will be available for sale starting Wednesday, May 28 in South Korea and soon enough in other 170 countries. The Quick Circle Case will be compatible with the LG G3 and will be sold separately (mint, pink, white, gold, black). This will allow the device to charge wireless and to control everything from music to calls. Starting July 2014, Sprint will offer in the US a special edition Shine Gold G3, but pricing has not been announced yet. Retails stores are expecting a starting price of $925, though.
