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

LG G3 Official Specs and Pictures

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.

The specs of the handset have basically been confirmed, and will include a 5.5-inch Quad HD display (2560 x 1440 resolution and 538ppi), Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, advanced 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization (OIS+) and laser autofocus, 2.1-megapixel camera, microSD support, 1 watt speaker, user replaceable 3000mAh battery and Android KitKat on board.

The phone will also feature a lightweight metal case with buttons on the back and will support wireless charging.

When it comes to special features, the G3 will come with Knock Code support, which is also found on the G Pro 2, some sort of assistant-like Smart Notice feature, a new Slim keyboard app and special apps that can be used with the already announced QuickCircle accessory.

LG says its new handset will feature a new, “easy to understand and attractive interface.” “All unnecessary visual elements have been removed,” the company writes. “Each function also has its own color, so you have an easy overview.” Furthermore, LG says the phone will pack a simple file management system, allowing users to “easily remove apps” – it’s not clear though whether that includes bloatware apps as well.

Pricing details and release dates have not been mentioned on the page. LG will unveil the G3 on Tuesday, via a special media event taking place in many cities around the world.
