LG G3 in the U.S. and South Korea will not support wireless charging: Report


Planning to get an LG G3 in the U.S. next month? Well, we’ve got some bad news for you. According to a new report, the upcoming LG flagship will lack the Qi based wireless charging feature. It is said that the company’s agreements with carriers in the two countries doesn’t allow for the feature to be used. It is clear however that unlocked and global variants of the smartphone will support wireless charging.

For those in the U.S. and South Korea, the feature can reportedly be enabled by adding the QuickCircle case. The case should be available shortly after the handset is launched in these regions, so it’s not much of a hindrance.

The LG G3 comes with a 5.5 inch 2K resolution display, a 13-megapixel camera with OIS and a laser autofocus sensor, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2/3GB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of storage, Android 4.4.2 KitKat and a 3,000 mAh battery.

Does the exclusion of the wireless charging feature concern you? Let us know in the comments below.
