LG G3 Cat 6 is now official, comes equipped with a Snapdragon 805 processor

LG G3 Cat 6 official

Yesterday, rumors that LG would officially announce the long rumored Snapdragon 805 toting version of their flagship later this week may have had some truth behind them. In a smartphone arms race for market share dominance, the Korean manufacturer has officially unveiled the LG G3 Cat 6, a phone nearly identical to their original flagship that launched only a few short weeks ago.

Before you get too upset, it appears this model is only meant for the device’s homeland of South Korea and the few networks therein who have deployed LTE-A services. With Category 6 LTE, the phone is faster than your average run of the mill LTE device, capable of 225Mbps data speeds — faster than what you’re paying for back home. Cat 6 is made possible thanks to the very latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and the Qualcomm Gobi 9×35 embedded modem.

Other than that, it’s the same LG G3 that launched a few short weeks ago so don’t feel too left out (although we admit, the prospect of a Snap 805 has us drooling). Maybe things will change once our networks get up to speed with South Korea.

      It might be hard to see from that high horse you’re on but, it was reported on when it was announced, this is a follow up article reporting that it’s now actually available.

      • EarlyMon

        Really? I didn’t think that reading the Korean article giving dates, prices and specs directly from LG a few weeks ago constituted a high horse. :D

        So, aside from the West still believing that this is a rumor with a new confirmation date, what part did I miss?

        Probably, not much.

        And now my horse died laughing. Guess I’ll walk… :D

          I’m pretty sure that high horse of yours is dying from being overfed.
