    As sometimes happens with rumors and leaks, we can't tell how accurate this latest intel is, but we are hoping it turns out to be true. The earlier rumors of the LG G3 suggested it will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 or even the older 800, but today's rumor suggests that was simply an earlier prototype and the actual processor will be the Snapdragon 805 we have been drooling over since Qualcomm announced it.

    If true, this means that LG will be the first device announced with the new processor. There is precedent for this, as the LG G2 was one of the first phones to come with the Snapdragon 800. On top of the rumored Snapdragon 805, there are hints that the device will include a 13MP OIS+ camera on-board, as well as 3GB of RAM for the 32GB version of the device. Interestingly, the 16GB version of the phone will only have 2GB of RAM.

    The rumored display hasn't changed, and the LG G3 will still have the 2K 5.5-inch 2,560×1,440 (QHD) touchscreen. Finally, this new rumor also suggests the phone's battery will be a 3,200 mAh instead of the 3,000 mAh previously rumored. As always, take these rumors with your daily helping of skeptics salt. If this is true, the G3 will be one of the more exciting Android smartphone launches of the year. Here at HQ, we are now even more anxious to see what the truth is on May 27th. Stay Tuned!

    Hmmm... It'll be interesting to see what it turns out to be.. I like the g2..but not enough to make it my primary device... But it misses that by a slim margin.. The g3 just might have what it takes.. I say this drooling right now.

    Wow. This sounds like it hits the mark in all areas. Best resolution, best processor, best ram, probably a camera with top marks, awesome removable battery, sd slot.

    Definately a spec war power users phone.

    Why do they keep increasing phone size on every device???? Just too big for my liking but it seems all top end android phones are following the trend! 4.7-5" is the perfect size in my opinion!

    I like all the "leaks" and "rumors" cause if they come together and the phone is as good as the LG G2 (it is now my daily driver) - I think it will compete nicely with Samsung and the other top end phones on the market. And by that I mean it could actually take some market share from the top name manufacturers.

    I agree. LG has done a fantastic job with the G2 and they are starting to make a name for themselves. At one time I wouldn't have touched an LG phone, but after owning the G2 LG is at the top of the list for my next phone.

    No, I haven't had any luck getting it sorted out. I might call Verizon, but I don't want a certified like new replacement.

    Drooling over the difference between the 805 and 801 or 800? Really?

    I hate the bigger phone sizes. No, I am not going to get "used to it". People walking around with something like the Note 3 look like fools - YES, you really do! But on the plus side I save my money not upgrading.

    I gotta admit this device looks really promising and if it continues onward in a path moving forward that the G2 has started this is going to be an amazing game changer phone to have. If this device continues to stay open to the Development Community and not locked down as some of the others, there will be a tremendous shift of Development over to this device. I'm looking forward to working on themes and possibly ROM building if this device continues to stay open. :biggrin:

    The size of the Moto X is really better for me than the G2, but that screen and camera made it a worthwhile tradeoff for me.

    I hope @dgstorm doesn't mind but I just found this on confirmation on the QHD that I thought was worth adding in here... source

    LG Display’s 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD Panel for Smartphones

    Receives Certification for Quad HD Quality Ahead of Mass Production

    Seoul, Korea (May 8, 2014) – LG Display announced today that its 5.5-inch Quad HD (QHD) AH-IPS LCD panel for smartphones was certified as a QHD display after passing verified tests by NEMKO, the Norway-based international testing and certification organization for electrical products. The certification comes shortly before the new Quad HD LCD panel will be unveiled with the forthcoming LG’s flagship smartphone to be launched in the first half of the year.

    The certified 5.5-inch QHD AH-IPS LCD panel has 2560 x 1440 pixels, four times the image resolution of HD panels and 1.8 times higher resolution than a Full HD panel. With 538 pixels per inch, this panel also meets the 100 percent RGB color reproduction standard.

    This panel, which will go into mass production shortly, will offer superior performance to other existing smartphone panels. This is an ultra-slim panel with a mere 1.2 mm thickness and has a 1.15 mm bezel, which will be the narrowest available and 0.05 mm less than panels introduced last year.

    In addition, the panel has achieved the same level of brightness as a Full HD panel. It is difficult to raise penetration ratio in higher resolution panels since they have more pixels. However, LG Display successfully achieved higher brightness by improving the penetration ratio through enhancing the pixel structure design and aperture ratio in the LTPS backplane.

    The Quad HD display produces images in sharper color and contrast than regular displays because of the greater amount of pixels. This means that high resolution images and videos in the Blu-ray format can be viewed in a fully vivid and realistic manner. The display retains the readability of letters and images without distorting them when they are enlarged while surfing the internet or working on documents.

    “This product fulfills the core qualities of smartphone displays, which are high resolution and slim design, and I believe the consumers can enjoy vivid images that are close to real life with this display,” said Byung-koo Kim, Vice President and Head of LG Display’s IT/Mobile Development Group. “LG Display will continue to maintain technology leadership in the super high-resolution smartphone display market above 500 ppi resolution, which will take off this year.”

    According to DisplaySearch, the shipment of premium smartphone displays based on LTPS backplanes is expected to grow to 780 million units by this year and 940 million units by next year. These products are going to maintain sufficient competitive advantage in premium product categories where large size, high resolution and low power consumption are key factors.​
