It looks like LG will be putting the QHD display it was showing off in August, on the upcoming G3 smartphone. Wondering what’s so cool about the touchscreen? Well, talk about squeezing Quad HD 2560 x 1440p resolution and 538ppi sharp visuals onto a screen estate of 5.5 inches.
That’s four times more pixels than what a 1280 x 720p display can offer. The South Korean company’s AH-IPS LCD panel can go up to 430nit brightness and is merely 1.21mm thin. It’s even skinnier than LG’s 5.2-inch full HD LCD by about 12% and has a bezel measuring 1.2mm.
But the screen won’t be the only key component that will come from LG. It’s been reported that an octa-core chipset codenamed Odin may power the handset. It will supposedly be used for the future G Pad tablets too. But these are not the last of the details we’ve heard about the smartphone.
According to speculations, this successor to the flagship G2 device will have a 16MP camera on the back panel. It may be launched in the second half of 2014. Phone Arena cites ZDNet Korea as the source of the story.
LG G3 rumored specs:
– 2560 x 1440p QHD touchscreen
– Octa-core processor
– 16MP main camera
– Release windows for Q2 or Q3, 2014
