We’ll be live from LG’s G3 unveiling today at 1:00PM!

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.

Bookmark this link, which will go live shortly before the event starts later today, and make sure to head there for our live coverage and streaming video of LG’s press conference! Coverage will begin just before 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. PDT.

There’s really nothing the LG G3 can surprise us with

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.

LG G3 2TB microSD Card Support

Don’t get too excited about the G3’s 2TB microSD card support

Don’t get too excited about the G3’s 2TB microSD card support

The LG G3 will be one of the best Android handsets around when LG finally launches it on Tuesday. It will offer buyers several interesting features including an already confirmed high-resolution 2K display, metal or metal-like design, optical image stabilization in the camera, removable battery and support for microSD cards (both features unavailable to G2 owners) and a brand new protective case with smart functions. 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.

Guess who’s reportedly trying to follow Apple…again?

Apple already uses sapphire to protect the iPhone 5s’s Touch ID sensor and camera lens, and all the latest rumors point to Apple introducing an iPhone 6 this fall with a sapphire display, likely manufactured at Apple’s sapphire plant in Arizona. So how do you think Samsung is going to respond? Do you even have to ask?  More →

Video: LG gives the world its first offical look at the G3

Even though LG’s G3 media event is less than a week away, the company can’t wait to share more details about the device with the public and generate even more buzz for its 2014 flagship handset. After confirming the phone’s name, display specs and launching a special QuickWindow case, the company has released new teaser ads for its home country, which confirm other G3 rumors including all the recent G3 image leaks. In three very short videos, LG is teasing three G3 features including the display, design and camera of the handset.

LG is apparently taking a more aggressive approach to collecting user data from Smart TVs that can be then sold to advertisers, TechDirt reports, as the company is ready to turn a Smart TV into a rather “stupid” TV for users who fail to accept its privacy policy. More →

This is how big the LG G3 will supposedly be

A new image showing a press render of the LG G3 in a slim case has been leaked, offering some insight on the potential size of the device. According to a picture posted by @evleaks, the next LG flagship handset will measure 150 x 78 x 13 mm with a case on, suggesting the handset will be bulkier than expected. Comparatively, the G2 measures 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9 mm, while the Galaxy S5, one of the G3’s main rivals this year, measures 142 x 72.5 x 8.1 mm. More →

More key LG G3 features revealed in new leaks

LG is getting ready to launch its next flagship handset, the LG G3, this month, much earlier than initially expected. The company is apparently trying to both better compete against the recently released Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8), and also to avoid direct competition with the iPhone 6 that will launch next quarter, which is when the G3 was expected to hit stores. Thus, it’s not surprising to see more key details revealed about the handset, with just over a week to go until the G3 media event kicks off. More →

LG gives us our first official look at the G3 in a slick new teaser video

We’ve seen a lot of the LG G3 through leaked pictures but now LG is ready to give us our first official glimpse of the device. LG on Tuesday posted a teaser video that shows off the G3’s metallic frame, its revamped rear buttons, its new camera and what look to be some of the slimmest side bezels we’ve yet seen in a smartphone. LG is launching the G3 at a special event in London on May 27th and all the leaks we’ve seen of the device indicate that LG has really upped its game to compete with Samsung and HTC after disappointing us last year with the LG G2. Reported specs for the device include a 5.5-inch quad-HD display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 16-megapixel camera. LG’s full teaser video for the G3 follows below. More →

LG G3 Leaked Pictures

New leak shows that the G3 is LG’s most impressive looking smartphone yet

Every leak we’ve seen about the LG G3 makes us think it will be a very impressive new device, even in a year that has already seen the release of three heavily hyped Android phones with the Galaxy S5, the HTC One (M8) and the OnePlus One. PhoneArena has received yet another set of leaked LG G3 pictures that show two versions of the device, one with rear casing that’s white and one with a rear casing that’s black. Apparently, the rear casing for the devices will be plastic but LG has given them a brushed effect that will make them look more metallic like HTC’s latest flagship smartphone. More →
