LG G3 Prime surfaces in Korean advert



For Korea’s big smartphone manufacturers, it seems the best isn’t always good enough. Just as Samsung quickly offered an upgraded LTE-A variant of their Galaxy S5 in the region, it appears LG is ready to take a similar tack. Appearing via LG Best Mall is an advertisement for the G3 Cat. 6, a rumored device that has previously been referred to as the G3 Prime.

The Cat. 6 name refers to the phone’s faster LTE speeds and hints at the sort of changes we can expected between the new model and the G3 already on sale. As it stands, the currently available LG G3 runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 platform, a chipset that maxes out at Cat. 4 LTE. The Snapdragon 805, on the other hand, is more than capable of tapping into Cat. 6 LTE, and makes sense as the processor we will see in this LTE-A edition of the phone.

Otherwise expect a pretty similar compliment of hardware in a package that is practically identical to the original G3. This includes a beautiful QuadHD display measuring 5.5 inches, 13MP camera with laser autofocus, and simplified user experience.

LG has yet to officially announce this latest edition of the G3, so the advertisement itself is a bit of an anomaly. When the G3 Cat. 6 (or G3 Prime) does launch, don’t expect to see it outside of South Korea.
