We’re barely six days until LG officially takes the wraps off the LG G3 and the phone has already all but been revealed. Aside from the recent string of leaks showing off the phone in every angle thanks to leaked press images, the only real question is exactly how big the phone will be, and its expected launch date.

At least one of those questions is being answered in — you guessed it — another leak, this time from LG themselves who held a special preview event in their homeland of South Korea.

Leave it to someone (hopefully not an employee) to capture images of the slides being shown during the event, spoiling nearly every detail we expect to see during LG’s official May 27th reveal. The most noteworthy slide showed the phone’s actual dimensions, which helps the phone measure in just a hair taller and wider than the Samsung Galaxy S5. Here are the specs confirmed in the leaked slide:

LG G3

  • 146.3mm x 74.6mm x 8.9mm
  • Android KitKat 4.4
  • LTE, LTE-A
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
  • 32GB internal storage, 3GB DDR3 RAM
  • 5.5-inch Quad HD (2560 x 1440) IPS
  • 13MP OIS (optical image stabilization) camera / 2.1MP front-facing camera
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • USB 2.0 / Bluetooth 4.0 LE / NFC

Also discussed was a powerful new 1W speaker for a volume boost — an area sorely lacking from the previous generation LG G2. In a later slide we find mention of the LG G3’s mysterious black sensor which, according to recent leaks, suggested could be some sort of laser sensor to help with auto focusing. According to the slide, that sounds about right, but the exact technology involved wasn’t made clear.

Of course, we’ll keep an eye out for any other leaks as they come in. Now that we know the exact size of the LG G3 — almost the same height as the HTC One M8 — has that changed anyone’s opinion about the phone?
