After a decent year for LG, but one that still saw Samsung dominate headlines and sales charts with its line of Galaxy phones, the company may be moving towards a May release of its next flagship, potentially called the G3. According to a report from Korean media, the new May release time frame will be done specifically to put it close to Samsung’s April launch of the Galaxy S5.
As you may recall, the G2 was only released in late September as LG’s newest flagship, a device we are actually quite fond of here at DL. With its solid camera, amazing display, incredible battery life, and unmatched performance, one could argue that it’s as good as any other phone on the market. Be sure to read our G2 review if you haven’t already.
For whatever reason, all of those attributes didn’t help the device fully put LG back on the smartphone map. Maybe a release of the G3 shortly after the Galaxy S5 will help, especially with a massive marketing push.
Today’s new report out of Korea also suggests that the phone will feature a QHD display (2560×1440), the new oft-listed spec of the moment for rumored devices of 2014. Samsung’s new phone is rumored to carry a QHD display as well.
Who wants LG to put out a G3 already? G2 owners, would you jump to the next version already?
