First glimpse of the LG G3 in official teaser video

Earlier this month, we got a clear look at the LG G3, the company's new flagship Android phone, thanks to leaked images of the device. But ahead of its launch in a couple of weeks' time, LG has now given us our first official views of the device, with the release of a teaser video. 

The video is, of course, intended to whet our appetites while still holding something back for the official announcement, so LG has been careful to give us only the scantest glimpses of the latest addition to its range. Our interests have certainly been piqued though, thanks to the fleeting views of the G3's slender profile, a floating camera lens (hinting at optical image stabilization), speaker close-ups and what appears to be brushed aluminium bodywork. The unusual rear buttons of the LG G2, located below the camera, have also been carried over to its successor. 

The G3 is expected to be a pocket powerhouse, with specs rumoured to include a quad-core Snapdragon 800-series processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13- or 16-megapixel camera and a 5.5-inch display with Quad HD (2560x1440px) resolution. 

The company has added a product page for the device to its website but, predictably, it's rather lacking in detail at the moment. LG will be unveiling the G3 on May 27 at a launch event in London, so with less than two weeks remaining until the big day, at least we don't have long to wait before we get a proper look at what could be one of the most exciting handsets of the year.

oh man I JUST ordered a pair of the LG Tone Ultras and now they show some Infinim which are awesome looking!!

Ugh, metal phone. Dislike.

It's a common misconception that making a phone out of metal makes it tougher. It's quite the opposite.

Metal is much heavier, in order to make it light enough it must be thin metal and/or soft weak aluminium alloy.

Metal dents and bends permanently. Polycarbonate flexes, bends and springs back into shape.

Very happy with my plastic G2, don't give a rat's ass that some don't think it looks "premium".

The big thing I really like about it is that it's the smallest phone in the world with a 5.2 inch screen :D

Looks like they are improving the screen size to phone size ratio even more with the G3, which is a good thing. Most other manufacturers seem to have stopped trying to shrink bezels and look dated by comparison to my G2.

Actually G3 will be policarbonate, with metal look. So you can rejoice.

Old phones, old OS. We are talking 2+ years here. The Galaxy Nexus only went up to Jelly Bean and it's possible that you didn't even keep it past the first incarnation of it (JB goes from 4.1 to 4.3).

Get a KitKat device, rejoice.

Have you used an Android phone since Nov 2011? Doesnt sound like it. And the Galaxy Nexus was a pretty good device.

I used the Nexus S until about mid-2012 the galaxy nexus from then until December of last year.

Mine isnt. Still like my G2 and probably wont get the G3. G4, maybe but that depends what Nexus/Silver devices are out there as well as what Moto comes out with. Of course, still watching HTC.
