LG has unveiled the 5.5-inch G3 device that would compete in the smartphone world for 2014.
The new phone tugs a massive Quad HD 2460 x 1440 screen resolution with 538ppi, a rear-facing 13MP camera with a laser autofocus system, a standard Snapdragon 801 chip and 2GB of RAM.
Camera-wise, the G3 is a pretty complete package and certainly looks to take the fight to the likes of the HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. The aforementioned laser autofocus works through a laser detection unit on the rear of the phone that comes from LG's robot technology for measuring distance. It works by measuring the time it takes for the laser to travel between the phone and the object you're snapping.
There’s also a dual LED flash and the option to tinker with the likes of white balance and ISO. For selfie fans, there’s a front-facing 2.1MP camera to take advantage of. And, just to reinforce the purpose, LG is actually officially calling it a "selfie camera".
Rounding out the mentionable specs are the fact that it has a removable 3,000mAh battery and microSD card slot for expanding on the 32GB of internal storage.
Global pricing and release date haven’t yet been made available by LG.
