Year 2013 witnessed a tough competition in phablet class smartphones category mainly among Samsung Galaxy Note 3, LG G2 and htc ONE max.

The LG G3 vs Galaxy Note 4 vs htc ONE max 2 fight seems to be getting in next round with LG working on LG G 3rd generation to pitch into competition.

Unlike Taiwanese htc, both Samsung and LG are big Korean companies with various products lines in consumer electronics including Mobile Phones and Display products.

Thanks to popular Galaxy Smartphones series, Samsung has established itself as world's top mobile phone and display manufacturing champion in past two years. However, with LG G series the number one position of Samsung Galaxy devices is increasingly getting challenged, especially the excellent reception LG G Pro Lite, LG G2 and LG G Flex phones have received.

LG is rumored to continue with its strategy of delivering unique design blended with top notch specifications for its next LG G3 flagship device.
LG G3 Release Date, Phone Specs Rumors 2014

LG has sold about 60,000 units of the LG G2 in South Korea alone, where as the global sales number stand more than 3 millions. The company is rumored to be working on the LG G2 mini phone as well, this device is going be a compact version of the flagship smartphone and will feature hardware similar to the LG G2.

LG G3 Release Date 2014

Although the LG G2 was released in September 2013, but if reports are to be believed the new LG G3 is coming out earlier this year. This seems a bit unlikely, but not impossible considering Sony is also having a 6 month cycle for its flagship phones.

Thus, LG looking to give tough competition to Samsung and htc, might bring LG G3 Release Date back in the Q2 of 2014. However, if all the LG G3 rumors proved wrong and company decides to stick with regular annual release cycle, we'll witness LG G2 launch date in September 2014, ahead of Galaxy Note 4 Release Date.

LG G3 Mobile Phone Specs Rumors

Recently some LG G3 rumors have started floating around the media about the possible LG G3 features we have summarize all the rumored specs of LG G3 cell phone for our reader as follows:
  • Design
    The LG G2 was the first phone with no buttons at the sides, but at the back instead. The G3 cell phone will continue with the same design language.

    Reports also indicate that the smartphone will be using a fingerprint sensor, however unlike Apple’s touch-based sensor in iPhone 5s, LG will be using a swipe scanner. This means that the user will have to swipe his/ her finger to authenticate identity.

  • Display
    LG is in a tough spot in comparison to Sony and Samsung, which build their 2012’s flagship using 5-inch display. LG, on the other hand, used a 5.2-inch display for the G2, which means that if it increases the display then the device would move to phablet category. We think that wouldn’t be the case and the manufacturer will be using 5.2-inch display only for G3, however it will bear much better resolution.

    According to rumors, the device will have a resolution 2,560 x 1,440 pixels, also called as Quad HD display. It’s important to note that LG was the first manufacturer to demo a QHD display.

  • Processor
    When the whole world is going towards 8x power with octa-core processor, LG will also use an octa-core processor to power the G3. Rumors also point that the device might be using LG’s own custom chip named as Odin. However, there is no information about its clock speed. Some speculations also suggest that it will be based on 64-bit architecture, first seen in Apple’s iPhone 5s.

  • RAM
    To complement the processor, the handset will be using a 3GB RAM. This combination will make the device really powerful and bring it at par with other flagship devices set to release next year.

  • Storage
    The LG G2 had onboard memory of 16/ 32GB, which can’t be further expanded. So company might bring more memory options to the consumers with the introduction of 64GB variant.

  • Camera
    Rumors suggest that the LG G3 camera will be sporting a 16MP. Similar to the 13MP camera used in its predecessor, the camera will have Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) technology and LED flash to shoot in low light conditions. The camera might also offer 4K resolution video recording option.

    At the front, the device might have a 3.2MP camera for video calling or self-portraits.

  • Operating System
    The smartphone will be running on the latest Android version 4.4 KitKat. Company will be adding its custom software layer with various useful features, which we also saw in the G2. Features like Knock Knock, Q Slide, Q Memo, Q Translator will definitely be in the G3 along with some gestural interactions.

  • Battery
    LG G2 was appreciated for its long-lasting battery life of 3,000 mAh. LG would aim to continue with such battery life and we think that the G3 will get a Li-Po battery of 3,500 mAh capacity.
