|LG G3 Announced, 5.5-inch Quad HD Display, 13MP OIS+ with Laser Auto Focus Camera|
LG Electronics announced today the much anticipated successor of the 2013 King of Smartphone - the LG G3, which the company claims empowered with the best technology currently offered today.
The LG G3 features a 5.5-inch IPS display with Quad HD (2560x1440) resolution, which translate whooping 538ppi making it one of the best, if not the best screen in today's smartphone generation. Do not get confused with QHD and qHD since the latter has only 960x540 pixels. So how sharp is QHD? It is exactly four times the resolution of HD (1280x720) and twice as much of the Full HD (1920x1080).
What is ticking inside is a Quad Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with each core clocked at 2.5GHz each. It comes in two variants of ROM/RAM combination, 16GB with 2GB RAM and 32GB with 3GB RAM.
The main camera resolution remains the same with its predecessor, but this time it boasts an Optical Image Stabilization Plus with Laser Auto Focus, a first in the mobile industry. This technology measures the distance between the subject and camera using a laser beam making accurate focus at a fraction of time.
The latest LG phablet runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat with a redesigned user interface to match LG's concept "Simple is the New Smart." It has lots of new features such as Smart Keyboard, Smart Notice and Smart Security.
Starting today, the LG G3 will be rolled out in 170 carriers worldwide, however there was no mention about its price. Let us wait for the LG Philippines local announcement and hopefully it will have reasonable price like when the LG G2 was released in the country.
