Just five days after the G3’s May 28th release in South Korea, LG had already sold 100,000 units, the fastest opening week sales of any smartphone is LG’s history. Korea IT Times reports that the daily sales volume has been estimated at 20,000 to 30,000 units. As a point of reference, the G2 was estimated to have sold less than 10,000 units per day when it launched last year. More →
We still have a bit of a wait before LG’s new flagship G3 smartphone launches in the United States, but consumers in LG’s home market of South Korea already have access to the company’s latest and greatest. Announced just last week, the G3 is the first mass-market smartphone to feature a quad HD display that packs twice as many pixels as the full HD 1080p screens on devices like the Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8). The G3 has plenty more to offer smartphone buyers as well, and it looks like LG’s new flagship phone is flying off the shelves so far. More →
The recently announced LG G3 is one of the most impressive Android smartphones we’ve ever seen, even though a majority of the specifications had already leaked prior to the official reveal. Most of those leaks turned out to be spot on, but one detail in particular was sadly inaccurate — the LG G3 features a plastic body instead of a metal one. More →
LG last week unveiled its 2014 Android flagship phone, the G3, which is now ready to give the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) a serious run for their money. At the same time, however, LG didn’t reveal many details about the phone’s international launch schedule or pricing. The phone is already available in South Korea, and will launch in the U.S. in the coming months, according to local operators, while Europe may get it in early July. More →
It wasn’t exactly a surprise since specs and details surrounding LG’s new flagship smartphone have been leaking for months, but the company finally unveiled its new G3 handset on Tuesday. We took an early look at the phone in our hands-on LG G3 preview, and we found that LG’s new flagship phone outshines its predecessor in just about every way.
LG certainly has an uphill climb if it hopes to compete with top rival Samsung, but thanks to cutting-edge technology and a few innovative features, there are also several areas where the G3 doesn’t just top the G2, it outshines Samsung’s market-leading Galaxy S5 as well.
The G Watch, LG’s first Android Wear smartwatch that will soon hit stores, may ship with an unexpected hidden feature, Korean publication iNews24.com revealed – a built-in, non-removable SIM card. The device is apparently going to be further detailed during Google’s late June I/O 2014 developers event alongside Motorola’s Moto 360, and it could start selling from Google’s Play Store as well.

Although LG kept preaching “simplicity” at its big G3 launch event on Tuesday, the company did highlight some added features for its new flagship device that it believes will set it apart from rival Android devices. To give us a quick look at all these new features, LG has put together a slick new video that succinctly shows them off in a little over two minutes. Among other things, the G3 video shows you all of the key technology used in its new 13-megapixel camera, including optical image stabilization, laser autofocus and dual flash; its new KnockON security system; its new Smart Keyboard that lets you adjust your keyboard’s height to match your preferences and to simply swipe up to choose an autocomplete word; and a while lot more. The whole video, which is so intense that it might give you seizures if you’re not careful, can be found below. More →
Just a few short months after the release of the G2, LG is back with a brand-new flagship device. The G3 has been leaked more extensively than any other phone in recent memory, but the leaks don’t distract from what might be the best oversized Android smartphone ever made.
As with last year’s model, the LG G3 features top-of-the-line specifications. At 5.5 inches, the G3 towers over its competition, making a strong case for the ever-increasing size of the flagship smartphone. Inside, the G3 contains a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. More →
The LG G3 is now official and will be available in its home country starting with May 28th, after which it will be launched worldwide by more than 170 carriers. However, the company failed to mention any specific launch details for the U.S. or international markets, and did not confirm any prices for the two G3 versions that will be available to buyers. Even so, three of the main four U.S. carriers have announced plans to sell the handset, including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, without offering any particularly useful details. More →
LG on Tuesday finally unveiled the G3, its 2014 Android flagship smartphone that appeared in so many reports ahead of its major media event. However, the device was hardly a secret anymore, as LG revealed its name, 2K display and special case accessory well ahead of the event, while LG local sites in the U.K. and Netherlands mistakenly listed everything there is to know about the phone.

LG’s G3 smartphone probably won’t “kill” the Galaxy S5 but LG would be more than happy to see it peel away some customers from Samsung’s latest flagship phone. LG on Tuesday finally took the wraps of the G3 and as expected the new device features a a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera with an optical image stabilizer and laser autofocus, 2.1-megapixel camera, microSD support, a replaceable 3000mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. LG says that the device will release this summer on all four major carriers in the United States. More →
Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to meet one of the most exciting new smartphones of 2014… again. Details surrounding LG’s new G3 smartphone have been leaking constantly for the past few months, and things came to a head when LG Netherlands accidentally posted official press images of the G3 as well as the flagship phone’s complete specs.
Thanks to that massive leak, we know we’re in store for one of the most impressive Android phones of all time. More →
Rarely do we see a smartphone leak as extensively as the LG G3 did ahead of Tuesday’s official unveiling — just about everything you could possibly want to know about LG’s 2014 flagship phone has already leaked. In fact, LG itself became the biggest culprit on Monday when LG Netherlands accidentally published a dozen official images of the G3 along with the phone’s complete specs. LG put a lot of time and money into its three simultaneous G3 press conferences on Tuesday, however, and BGR will be on hand at the New York event with live coverage. After all, the least you can do is play along and act surprised.
