The LG G2 was met with mixed reviews when it was released late last year, though one thing is for sure: it was one of the most powerful devices at the end of 2013. Whether you love or hate the buttons on the back of the phone or the fact it came with only Android 4.2.2, LG certainly did a good job with the device and I have heard from countless happy owners. It is strange then that there are rumours coming out of Korea that LG is already planning the successor to the G2. This so-called LG G3 is apparently due in mid-May, and while the exact timing of the device can’t be pinpointed yet, it’s unusual that LG is planning to bring out another flagship so soon after the G2.
More than likely, this accelerated timetable while be aiming at combating the release of the Samsung Galaxy S5, expected at MWC 2014 next month, a fact which is apparently not lost on Sony either who has also accelerated its development cycle. Whatever the reason, more competition for the S5 is a good thing and we hope LG is able to create something new and innovative with the G3. The rumour also says that the G3 will likely have a 5.5-inch QHD display with a resolution of 2560×1440 (or 2K for all you HD aficionados), a 16MP camera and a LG Odin octa-core CPU. It’s interesting that LG wouldn’t go with the Snapdragon 805 for a processor, which is doing the rounds already, but it still is just rumours.
What do you think about LG launching another flagship so soon? Did you like the LG G2? Let us know what you think.
