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
Of special noteworthy mention is that the device is billed with an IR blaster, and it features that same mysterious back sensor that the LG G3 does in its leaked shots. We wouldn’t be surprised if that’s where that infrared goodness is coming from on both the Isai FL and the LG G3.
Design wise, KDDI’s phone does have rear facing volume buttons, but they’ve either elected to keep the power button in a more traditional spot or remove it altogether in favor of LG KnockOn (double tap to wake). It’s a phone most of us will never see, but it’s nice to get a preview of sorts of what the LG G3 might offer when it’s unveiled later this month.
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.
