The LG G3 event took off in London today and for the first time in a long time I was actually excited to watch it. As we all know LG has been leaking details about the LG G3 (for about 3 weeks now) and they still managed to surprise me with their new flagship device. Let me tell you why.
I am a sucker for a pretty screen and boy does the LG G3 have a pretty face. The LG G3 is using LG’s Quad Core HD IPS display which gives you a resolution of 2560×1440 along with 538 ppi. The display measures 5.5 inches and takes up 76% of the front face. That’s right 76%. That means less bezel and more screen for you to drool over. The age of QHD is coming and I think LG maybe winning.
Ok not real lasers that will allow you to destroy every iPhone in sight but a Laser that will allow you to Autofocus almost instantly. The LG G3 has been upgraded with Laser Autofocus which allows for faster automatic focusing on your subject. To give you a specific number, the Laser Autofocus focuses in 0.276 milliseconds. To put that in perspective for you, the human eye takes an average of 0.300-0.400 milliseconds to blink, that basically means the Laser Auto focus is pretty damn fast.
If you have or have read up on the LG G2 then you know of the knock knock feature. You double tap on the screen and it automatically turns on, simple and useful. This time around LG decided to build on that feature by making it a lock screen, thats right, now you can knock to unlock. The feature will allow you to create your own unique knock code (series of taps) that will unlock your device and take you straight to your homescreen. According to LG this Knock Code lock method will give you more than 80,000 possible combinations.
Aside from the hardware I mentioned above LG the G3 will also have a beefy Quad-Core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM (Sucks right?), 2.1 Megapixel front facing camera, 13 Megapixel rear camera, 3000 mAh battery and Micro SD card support. The LG G3 will also launch with Android 4.4 KitKat. So what do you think? Will you be going after the LG G3 this year? Let me know in the comments below.
