LG G3 flagship confirmed by company in earnings call along with second quarter launch

LG has already confirmed that it’s working on a new flagship smartphone for 2014 and that it will feature a QHD display, but it’s yet to disclosed whether the device will be called the LG G3 or not. Well, in the earnings report announced today, the company has officially revealed the handset’s branding and also the launch timeframe.

So LG G3 is here to stay and we can expect the smartphone to go official before the end of Q2 2014. This matches previous leaks that suggested the phone would make its debut in June with availability in July which is the start of Q3. The earnings report also mentions that there will be a wider rollout for the L Series III smartphones.

The LG G3 has been leaked one too many times. Just yesterday, we got the first peak at the handset’s rear panel, while full press renders of the Japanese variant which goes by the name LG Isai FL, have been posted online multiple times.
