LG’s work has pretty much been done for the company leading up to its event next week. Its next big device, the G3 smartphone has been leaked endlessly before any formal unveiling has even been held, so LG can basically go on stage next week and do nothing. We’re still really excited for the device, however, and it seems as though it’ll be available soon after an official announcement judging by its quick stop by the FCC.
There’s a confidentiality letter attached to the device that means no pictures of the handset are shared. But we’ve already seen the G3 pop up on multiple occasions, so that isn’t even necessary at this point. The FCC basically reveals the device’s radios—nothing too exciting. But it does hint that, in addition to LG’s announcement next week, a release could be imminent. And we’d hope that would be the case, too, because there’s nothing worse than a device being announced only to be released months later.
From what we’ve heard, the LG G3 will sport an aluminum body, redesigned back buttons, flatter UI, 5.5-inch Quad HD display, 13-megapixel camera and 3000mAh battery. In terms of both design and specs, the G3 already has a leg up on the competition (its closest rivals being the HTC One (M8) and Galaxy S5). LG has an event scheduled for May 27, where we’ll officially hear all about the device from LG’s lips.
