LG G3 specs leak, 2K display, 13MP camera in tow

It seems evleaks does not want LG to keep any secrets about the G3 as he has shared a screenshot of the AnTuTu benchmark running on the device, revealing its specifications.

LG is gearing up to launch the G3 on Tuesday, but the recently leaked screenshot from the device has revealed the majority of the smartphone's hardware specifications and has left very little for LG to share at its event. As the phone's press images and advertising material are already making the rounds online, the users only need to know the pricing and availability of the device from LG at the official event.

The leaked screenshot has confirmed the previously rumored specifications of the G3 which include a 5.5-inch display with Quad HD 2K (2560x1440) resolution, a Snapdragon 801 quad core processor with Adreno 330 GPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage and a 13 megapixel rear camera. The phone will run Android KitKat out of the box with LG's customizations.

LG will be holding a global event in six cities including San Francisco, New York, London, Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul on May 27th and we will know more about the smartphone and any other companion devices that the company may launch then.

if there was 1080p version I would get than instead of this one...this is where the higher res screen is actually a handicap rather than a feature.

Why do they keep going so much bigger. I understand that sizes stay similar in dimensions but with screen stretching in all directions you lose the ability to use it casually. I don't need phablet to use everyday just a regular phone like A moto X.

what a waste of screen. a 1080p would have provided the same optical fidelity while allowing the cpu and gpu to work less hard which would translate into battery and cost savings.

why aren't they innovating in other areas like sunlight readability, refresh rate, pixel latency, color accuracy, etc.

so many areas which would have a more tangible effect than yet another row of pixels.

For once i'd like a company to brag for the best battery ever and lowest consumption ever, rather than the biggest resolution or camera... jesus!

The difference between 1080p and 2K is 128 pixels in width (at standard 16:9), which indeed would make it hard to differentiate. :) What is mentioned in the specs/ss is a QHD display (4 * 1280x720), not a 2K display.

Edit: This was supposed to be a reply to philcruicks.

Yes, 2K is about 2000 pixels in width, which is muss less than what QHD offers. It wouldn't be fair, nor correct, to call this a 2K display when it's a vastly superior amount of pixels (~66%) being offered. The difference in width and height is 25% and ~33% respectively.

For example, double the width and height of QHD and compare it to 2K being doubled in the same manner, and I doubt you'll find anyone with a straight face to call them both 4K.

Pretty much. I am still more than happy with my G2 so while the G3 looks like a good phone, it has nothing that will make me want to upgrade.

I wonder how far this resolution war is going to go, who on this planet has the bionic eyes needed to see the difference between 1080p and 2k on a 5.5" device...unless you've got it glued to your face.
Don't get me wrong, higher resolutions are generally better, but there comes a point where its just silly, 2K on a 40" TV or even a 27" monitor is noticeable...but at 5.5" I seriously doubt it. Just adds to the cost of the phone with little to no benefit to the user.

The point is this phone will be slower than G2 because the resolution is higher and the GPU Adreno 330 is marginally faster than the same 330 found in the G2. The games like Real Racing 3 and similar will play at lower resolution or will stutter on native 1440 x 2560 resolution. Also no 64bit. That's where real future proof stuff lies.

So the current generation of Snapdragon 801 phones are just a stop gap till the real deal Snapdragon 810 based phones get released. Those who already having S800 based phones have no reason to waste their money.

That is a big downside to the resolution increases, my Note 3 with its snapdragon 800 stutters playing the GTA games, my nexus 4 stuttered with its S4 Pro running GTA at 720, not all the time mind you, but just often enough to become noticable and annoying
