It looks like LG’s next-generation flagship phone for 2014 might have something a bit more impressive to tout than buttons on the back of the device. According to a report from ZDNet Korea, LG may have leaked the specs of its next generation flagship phone, the LG G3. It is rumored to have a 1,440 x 2,560-pixel quad HD display. Quad HD is another name for 2K resolution, which refers to a display that has a horizontal resolution (or vertical resolution, in the case of smartphones) of more than 2,000 pixels. The rumor does not specify how large the display will be, but LG showed off a new 5.5-inch quad HD display this August. ZDNet Korea’s report also says that the G3 will feature a 16-megapixel rear camera and an eight-core processor. The G3 isn’t expected to launch until the second half of 2014.
LG is facing an uphill battle with its new flagship phone. The LG G2 certainly had impressive specs, but as we said in our review in September, the G2 suffers from a focus on useless features such as its awkwardly placed buttons. As a result, the G2 has struggled, only selling 2.3 million units to date, which is far below the company’s expectation of 3 million units.
