LG G3 for Sprint will have 3GB RAM, 32GB storage

Sprint announced its launch plans for the LG G3 a few days ago, revealing that pre-orders will open on July 11, ahead of availability on July 18. The carrier did not disclose which variant of the G3 it would offer, but more recent leaks have now clarified this. 

LG announced the G3 at the end of May, boasting a list of impressive specs. The real headline-grabber was its 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560x1440px) display, along with a quad-core 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset. Two different versions of the G3 were revealed: one includes 16GB of onboard storage with 2GB of RAM; the other features 32GB of storage and 3GB RAM. 

As GSM Arena reports, two separate sources have now revealed that Sprint will get the latter variant with more storage and more RAM, matching T-Mobile which will offer the same version

The G3 will be priced at $600 off-contract with Sprint, available for $25 per month on the carrier's EasyPay instalment program. Sprint will exclusively offer the gold version of the handset in the US.

Im sorry but the only real selling point of the G2 was the price. At 600 off contract it doesnt seem this attractive anymore. Sure, it has some impressive specs and all but most people (outside the tech circle) dont give that much attention to those but to the price.

That makes sense. Sammy has been taking the android crown. LG struggles to be as popular and I think they shouldn't price themselves as high as a Sammy phone.

Kind of reminds me of amazon trying to price their offering just as high. -_-*

android is now like windows and the computers running it - tons of low quality devices running the most popular mobile OS, which is also low quality

While there are low-quality Android smartphones, I don't know if I would call the LG G3 that.

the LG G3 is like ALIENWARE, same could go for Samsung GS5, and HTC One M8, some others too, but its pretty much like i described it, i know, im a self-centered douche

Won't be happy till they bring out 4k display in a sub. 5" phone.

I hope this isn't crappy pentile either like the s5 2. Coz even at that dpi is #####house for crisp text. The htc one with LCD is much sharper for reading.

If this is full LCD it would be amazing. And yes I can tell the diff between 1080p. Retina. And higher.

Greater than 1080p in a phone is useless. You have to hold it inches from your face to see. Read the Anandtech review. It brings no benefits and a host of downsides. And it murders the battery life too. And yeah, it's RGB.

RGB 1080p is all you need.

Text isn't sharp enough. Why do people insist on telling u what u can and can't see ??

Because you can't see it unless you're holding it 3 inches from your face.

Sigh. I can. And when typing ant reading I hold it about 15cm away from my eyes. There's a massive difference. When looking at the letter X or inflection of an R you can. Just because u might not notice dosbt mean other can't. Some ppl wouldbt know the difference between $2 fish an chips and a nice $50 salmon dinner. But it's there. Playing it down is just embarrassing for you. Give the people what they want.

Have you seen an optometrist lately? 15cm is way too close to hold it. Does it even fit completely in the center of your vision? I put my Nexus 5 15cm away from my eyes and I have to move my eyes a lot to look at the top and then at the bottom. People just want bigger numbers even if they aren't better. And that's what LG is giving people I guess.

Lol I could do much better things with the $48 remaining that you would've spent. I mean unless you love food more than anything else and you want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on quality...

Better is subjective. Ur world isn't one I would want to live in. I eat salmon 3-4 times a week and want my 4k phone that looks sharper than reality.

I like how everyone is crapping there pants about 4k resolution. Facts are facts. More pixels per inch are EASIER on the eyes because the retina doesn't have to focus on the foreground as much. When browsing a web page such as "eBay desktop" on an lg g3 vs a Samsung galaxy s5 and an Lg g2. While fully zoomed out you can see the entire web page clearly with all text aligned we're they should be. Cmon people. In the 90's hasnt anyone ever compared 800x600 to 1280x1024? Yes that's right, the higher resolution is easier on your eyes. But if your still pondering on 1080p then do what you do. The switch will inevitably be non optional. Funny thing is, on a 4k phone,while reading text messages or browsing the web, you could just zoom in closer to 1080 or 720p resolutions. Which you cant do backwards on 1080/720 devices. 4k is so powerfull,you could essentially split that single screen into 4 720p screens basically giving you desktop powered resolution space and rendering on a tiny slim device that still manages 10hr+ screen on time.

I have a 50" 4k TV in my

The 801 processor kills it for me. I'm afraid of the lag pushing that resolution.

Also I've heard the device gets quite "hot" and throws out overheating warnings.

Look's like I'll be waiting for the Note 4. Upgrading from the SG3.
