    KaChow graciously brought us a great follow-up to our LG G3 spec article yesterday. As you can see from his post here, LG officially confirmed they developed their QHD display technology. More than likely it will be coming to the G3.

    Ironically, it won't be the G3 that gets the 2K Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display first though. Despite this, it will still be an LG device. As it turns out, LG will release a device called the Isai FL to the carrier KDDI in Japan. Here's the full feature-set of the device which will be coming to the Japanese carrier soon,
    • 5.5 inches QHD Display with 538ppi
    • 2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor (type unspecified)
    • 2GB of RAM
    • 13 megapixel camera that can shoot 4K video
    • 3,000mAh battery
    • 32GB of internal storage
    • A microSDXC card slot for cards up to 128GB
    • 1.3MP front camera
    • Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi AC, NFC and more
    Here's a quote with a few more details of this device,

    There are several possibilities which come to mind when viewing this. One, this is the device we have heard repeated rumors about with "lower-end" specs, and the G3 will actually have the higher end specs we posted yesterday. Two, the LG G3 will have these same internals and will not be as cutting edge as we would like. Three, if number two is true, then it is possible that LG is following Samsung and HTC and will offer a premium version of the G3 which will have the higher-end specs.

    One things for sure, we will know all the details in just a couple more weeks.

    I know I'm going to get boo'ed for saying this :biggrin: but it kinda seems like LG is killing 2 birds with 1 stone here. First, they are releasing an S5 killer and Second they are trying to release the first QHD screen to the market before Samsung can release the Prime.

    One of the things that I happened to pick up on with these specs that is different from earlier rumors on the G3 was the Micro SD storage which mentioned the external storage would be limited to 64GB, according to the below and above it looks with this device they are allowing for a microSDXC card slot for cards up to 128GB, which if this is also added to the G3, that would be incredible. I'm also glad to know where those plastic devices are going, but now even more curious to know what metallic colors are coming to the G3.:biggrin:
