Despite the fact that the LG G3 has barely seen the light of day, the Korean tech giant now plans on releasing a more powerful variant boasting LTE-A capabilities.
The news broke back in June when we came across reports from Korea suggesting that the said device should be released by the end of July. Less than two weeks ago we’ve also spotted the so-called “LG G3 Prime” in Korea, where an online retailer listed the device for registration purposes. Today we make a full circle and refocus our attention on the LTE-A-enabled LG G3 variant, as the Korean tech giant appears to have set the handset’s release date in stone.
LG G3 Cat.6 to be Released on July 25?
During our daily stroll through the mobile blogosphere we came across a new report suggesting that the LTE-A-enabled LG G3 “Prime” will hit the shelves on July 25. The information surfaced earlier today in Korea, so if the handset will indeed go live on the aforementioned date, then it will first and foremost do so in LG’s homeland. Once the smartphone will be launched in Korea, it remains to be seen when, or whether or not LG will expand the smartphone’s reaches to other countries / regions.
For those of you who are not familiar with the LG G3 Cat.6, the said smartphone is expected to pack a Snapdragon 805 SoC boasting an LTE-A modem, allowing the gadget to reach download speeds of up to 225 Mbps, where the network supports the feature. In addition, the handset will supposedly sport a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 (same as its non-LTE counterpart), 3 GB of RAM, a 13 MP main camera and a 3,000 mAh battery.
We’ll continue and keep our eyes on LG, so stay tuned for more. In the meantime, let us know if you’d be interested in buying the LG G3 Cat.6 in your region, assuming of course that it will be launched outside of Korea.
