Times haven’t exactly been fine and dandy for LG with major competitors having eaten up its market share in 2013, but this year it seems, the company is looking to win back its customers with the upcoming G3 flagship. This rumored smartphone is set to be released on May 17, according to a new leak.
This is a strange departure from last year’s strategy which saw LG unveiling its G2 flagship as late as in September. One would have expected that its successor too will be launched in the same month of this year, but it seems some drastic changes in the release strategy have been made by the company in order to counter competition from the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5.
According to G4Games, Korean site Naver has quoted ‘industry sources’ while revealing that the LG G3 will be seen totting a quad HD (QHD) display which means it will feature 2K (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution. Previous rumors too had hinted at this possibility, and at the likelihood of the device sporting a 5.5-inch screen. A 16MP snapper is also said to form part of the new handset.
But if the LG G3 is brought out so early, what will happen to the LG G Pro 2 which is also due at that time of the year? A weird as it may sound, the company is supposedly planning to release it prior to the G3, in February. This smartphone too is expected to kick in a 2K display, but its other details are still unknown.
