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.

LG is obviously eager to start selling the G3, and can’t wait to tell potential buyers everything about it. At least this seems to be the conclusion following large number of unofficial leaks detailing the phone, the various confirmations from the company’s recent announcements and teasers, and the leaked pages from its official websites. After LG U.K. listed the specs of the handset, saying it will offer microSD support for cards up to 2TB, LG Netherlands has spilled all the remaining G3 secrets, including special software features, Droid-Life reports.

However, the wildest feature yet on the G3 appears to be support for up to 2TB of storage via microSD cards, which appears to be a first for smartphones, at least according to LG’s U.K. site, which mentioned the specs of the unreleased handset.
