It’s been several months since LG released the G Pro 2 as a response to the latest gadgets on the market, but we all know that the bigger fish is the LG G3. Ever since the G Pro 2 hit the shelves in Korea, the handset has been referred to as a “placeholder” device for the upcoming G3. Now, with the passage of time, the launch of the G3 draws nearer, and lately there have been numerous reports hinting at the smartphone’s hardware configuration and release date time-frame.
Today we bring you more news surrounding LG’s upcoming top-range device, as not one, but two G3 variants seem to have paid AnTuTu a visit. Check out the screenshots below and join us after the break for the full story.
LG G3 Specs Exposed by AnTuTu
First, let’s discuss the screenshot above, and point out that the gadget in question has been, more or less, undercover. The model number and various other details that could point at the device’s identity are missing, and on the face of it, what we’re looking at might be the international G Pro 2. However, we don’t think it would’ve been necessary for LG to keep an international variant of the already launched G Pro 2 a secret, so we’re guessing that what we’re dealing with is a Full HD version of the G3 flagship, or a different phone altogether. But, there’s more.
This is a second new model exposure (above) and this time around it’s pretty clear that what we’re seeing is the LG G3. The handset appears to be running on a Snapdragon 801 SoC (MSM8974-AC judging by the 2.45 GHz CPU frequency), an Adreno 330 GPU, and 2 GB of RAM. The handset boasts a QHD display (2560 x 1440), a 13 MP main camera complemented by a 2 MP front-facing sensor, and Android 4.4 out of the box.
It’s interesting to note that the QHD G3 appears to be making use of only 2 GB of RAM instead of 3 GB, so we’re not sure what to make of this. If the first model (boasting a full HD display) is indeed a G3 spin-off, then why does it have 1 GB of RAM more while delivering a lower-res screen? That’s an interesting question, and we’re sure that the answer will be dug out soon. As such, we’ll keep you posted, so stay tuned, and don’t forget to share your thoughts below.
