LG G3 specs fully outed by official LG site ahead of launch

There are only a few short hours between us and the grand unveiling of the LG G3, but even more leaks are rushing in for last minute spotlights ahead of the big show. LG Netherlands’ site has accidentally posted full product information about the LG G3, and while it doesn’t tell us anything the rumors haven’t already it’s nice to see them somewhat confirmed.

Here’s how the full spec sheet lays out:

  • 5.5-inch 2560 × 1440 display
  • 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor (Snapdragon 801?)
  • 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, laser-assisted autofocus, 2.1-megapixel front camera
  • 16GB storage and microSD card slot with up to 128GB
  • 3000mAh battery
  • Android 4.4.2
  • WiFi, Bluetooth, NFC, 4G LTE, FM Radio
  • DLNA and Miracast
  • Metallic Black, Silk White, Gold Shine colors
  • 146.3 x 74.6 x 9.1mm

The site also mentions the device will come with metal housing, something we weren’t entirely sure about from all the leaks before (it’s always looked metal, but it wouldn’t have been the first time we’ve seen plastic perpetrating as something it’s not). The site has been fixed, naturally, but it shouldn’t be long before LG throws it back up. for the world to see.

The LG G3 shaping up to sound like a rather nice device. I’d say it’s ordinary for today’s flagship standards, though none of LG’s biggest competitors are quite living up to that ridiculous display being stuffed inside.

We’ll be making our way downtown like Vanessa Carlton later on today to get our own look at the thing in person. In the meantime, let us know if this is a smartphone you’d be likely to buy in the weeks or months to come!

    16 GB phones need to die. MicroSD isn’t the crutch it used to be due to KitKat changes.

    • AS

      Yep, I was really expecting 64/128 to be the norm by now

  • toomuchgame441

    Nice device… But once again. My M8 will suffice.

    • worldclassflame

      Amen to that same here!

  • J Cav the Great

    OK so is it metal or not? metal housing? I always had the feeling it would be metal… but no biggie…clearly a phone to be consider in November.

    • Tony Lai

      It was never said to be metal lol
      It’s always plastic with metallic type of finish.. it’s a removable back after all with a removable battery.

  • paddylaz

    Can someone explain what that big black gap is below the screen but above the lg bit? Is that just an error with the screen picture placement??

    • Josh Martin

      That would be the phone’s bezel. Now that you point it out, it looks ridiculous lol. I would get used to it tho.

  • TechGuy

    2GB RAM and 16GB storage…. ok not the phone I was waiting for after all. Rather disappointed.

  • James_C_L

    Shame on LG for still going with a 16gb on board. Sd support or not.

  • namesib

    2GB RAM? Still? Whhhhyyyyyyyyy? -__-

  • KiwiBri

    Yes ! A fricken Fm radio .. ! This is my next phone Glad never settled for one Plus Crap

    • oneyedmonkey


      • KiwiBri

        lol.. nice. No, serious. I was all over the oneplus until it launched with a large device (lied about fitting in 5″ form factor), no wireless charging, no fm radio.
        LG G3 not perfect but looks to be pretty good. Also I want to be able to get support and accessories from 3rd party companies for my devices

        • oneyedmonkey

          I am totally on the same page with you about these two phones, I am losing interest in the Oneplus with the whole invite system, I am actually getting pretty excited about the g3 now

    • james macy

      You know the One Plus has an FM radio right?

      • KiwiBri

        ah.. dont think so.. got proof? If it does, I’ll be surprised. It was one of the features that was dropped/lied about

  • Andrew White

    2GB of ram and 16GB of internal storage is very much a backward specification on latest gen flagship smartphones. LG is I’m sure more than aware of this, my guess is it will be 3 and 32.
    To justify the near $900 price tag the processor would have to be the Snapdragon 805 or LG’s own 8 core.
    Wireless charging and waterproofing may mean the battery is non-removable. In the absence of fast charging (Oppo Find 7) I hope the 3000mAh battery does in fact last 9-12 hours of fairly heavy use.
    Can’t wait to see or read a comprehensive review….soon.

  • BronzeLincolns

    quite the fail if this is truly it. and they’re gonna charge me $600 for it and even if there is a premium version it’s gonna cost more than that.

    meanwhile, whats offered here isn’t any better than what 1+1 offers at half the cost while both phones will be available at the same time.

    oh well…lets see what HTC and sammy’s prime phones turn out to be.

  • arkard1

    Ugh 16gb storage. Glad I didn’t wait for this.

  • J Cav the Great

    what happened to 3GB RAM? 32GB Storage?

  • Foramex

    All the commentora here are sold. It takes a nut-head to understand there will be 2GB/16, 3/32.
    Anyone who deliberatly ignores that then GTFO.

  • bbqsfire

    I might be the only one that is still interested in this phone. I’m waiting for some hands on videos but since the note 3 didn’t impress me I’ll just stick with my old faithful note 2.

  • cory

    I’d like to see the nexus 6/android silver based on this phone.

  • Andork

    Solid phone. 3 GB of ram would have been nice, but this isn’t running TW so I’m sure the phone will fly. I could Jump on my TM plan, but I’ve been spoiled by my Note 3 and the Note 4 will undoubtedly raise the bar even higher.

    • J Cav the Great

      I see what your saying… but I must say that we do not know how much more LG has added to their UI….Before you know it….they will have a 4GB software….like Sammy. but I do hope it does not need that 3GB….

      • Andork

        Good point. The G2 was and still is a great phone. Let’s just hope they move forward and not backwards in terms of the UI responsiveness.

  • Tony Lai

    I hope 2GB/16GB is not true….. at least for the US variant!
    And I thought front facing camera as 5MP?

    • JointhePredacons

      Youre thinking the HTC One M8, the ONLY smartphone with a 5MP FFC as far as i know.

  • Hvacmanjc

    After the bloatware…you will be lucky to have 11-12 gigs on board.

  • Libby Valentine

    I still think at the end of the day, the LG G3 still packs alot of bang for it’s buck. Considering the price, it is rocking alot of of features that are on par if not better than alot of it’s competitors. I mean, look at this comparison with the Samsung Galxy s5, http://versus.com/en/lg-g3-vs-samsung-galaxy-s5. The models are in 3D so you get a good idea of their size and shape but it’s obvious that the LG is comparable if not better…Samsung should be quaking in their boots!

  • Sana Kaur

    In the comparison of other phone i think this phone is solid phone. i want to buy this phone. currently i am using galaxy s3
