Fresh LG G3 trademark confirms device’s forthcoming launch


We’d be fools to think LG wouldn’t bring us a follow up to their best smartphone last year. We’d already heard murmurings that the South Korean electronics company was working to launch a sequel to the LG G2 this May, and now we’re beginning to see the first movement on those supposed plans.

LG has recently trademarked “G3” under the “mobile phones” category over at the USPTO, which confirms they’ll be sticking to the simple naming scheme for their biggest flagship series. The trademark itself doesn’t tell us anything about the supposed device, though earlier rumors have given us enough to start dreaming.

The device is said to sport a display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, though we’re not yet sure what size that’ll be coming in just yet. We’re also told to expect a 16 megapixel camera sensor, one which likely features optical image stabilization).

One interesting swerve is that LG is reportedly going for a home grown processor instead of the usual Qualcomm-built affair. We’re not quite sure what to make of that just yet, but we’ll have to await more information about the supposed silicon before we make any assumptions.

LG has been quite busy to start 2014, with the company said to be revealing the LG G Pro 2 anytime between now and Mobile World Congress later this month. They’ve already let loose a few official details about that particular handset, namely that it’ll be coming with a 13 megapixel camera that can shoot 4K video.

Said camera will feature new “optical stabilization plus” technology that utilizes both software and hardware to create sharper photos. Unofficially, we’re told the G Pro 2 will have a 6-inch 1080p display with a Snapdragon 800 processor. We imagine LG will want to get through the G Pro 2 launch before focusing too much on anything else, but it’s clear they have a solid plan to launch a solid stable of great devices in the year to come.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Just got a G2. It doesn’t seem like it’s worth it for an upgrade for me. This phone needs a little Xposed love and debloating but it’s worth it. $425 sealed is a steal

    1. What carrier?

      1. AT&T. I don’t know why it was do cheap. It wasn’t opened and it wasn’t a refurbished device neither.

        1. I can do you one better, I complained several times to AT&T about my S4 battery life and they gave me the G2 for free and let me keep my S4.

  2. The 2560 x 1440 resolution on this phone is 3.5 times that of my 11.6 inches netbook (1366×768) and 3.6 times that of a Dell Venue 8 inches tablet (1280×800). Is there any real benefit for such a high resolution on a smartphone? Or may be a phone screen costs the same price to manufacture regardless of the resolution?
