Ask anyone with a remote knowledge of the smartphone world what the most anticipated smartphone currently is, and chances are a majority of folks will say it is the LG G3. Being the first phone from a major manufacturer to sport a QHD (2560×1440) display and features like an infrared sensor for faster camera autofocus, the G3 is one of the best handsets at the moment, and soon, it will be available for purchase outside South Korea.
LG has announced that the G3 will go on sale globally on June 27, starting with Asian countries including Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines, followed by the rest of Asia, Middle East and Europe in early July. Sadly, LG hasn’t given any indication on when its newest flagship will go on sale in the United States – a leaked Verizon document revealed earlier that it would launch the G3 on July 17th, but it remains to be seen if that is the final date and whether it will be the same for other carriers in the country.
LG also confirmed that the European and Asian variants of the G3 will feature wireless charging. Otherwise, the specs will remain the same as before, including a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16/32GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 5.5-inch display, a 3,000 mAh battery, and Android 4.4 KitKat with a flatter, more colorful version of LG’s Optimus UI.
