LG G3 Headed to Sprint Seen in UAProf, Sports 5.5″ UHD Display and 3GB of RAM

LG logo

Thanks to a UA Profile (UAProf) taken from Sprint’s own servers, it appears that the LG G3, the OEM’s upcoming flagship device, has had its specs outed just a tad early. As we can see from the huge amount of text, the device’s specs are pretty much all known, including its display size, processor, amount of RAM, rear-facing camera resolution, and more. 

According to the UAProf, the G3 is set to come packed with a 5.5″ UHD display (2560 x 1440), a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera (capable of shooting stills at 4160×3120), a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 4G LTE connectivity, a microSD slot, Bluetooth 4.0, and will come running Android 4.4.2. The only thing iffy is the Snapdragon 800, however, it might still not be too late for LG to throw a Snapdragon 801 or higher into this device for mass production.

We still don’t have a date set for when LG plans on announcing its Galaxy S5 and M8 killer, but given that we are already near mid-April, we might not have too long to wait. Many folks here claim the G2 was the most underrated device of 2013, and if the G3 does indeed come toting a UHD display and that same 13MP with OIS built-in, then there is no doubt that this phone will be on every Android lover’s radar.

Below is a screenshot taken from the UAProf. If you would like to examine it yourself, open it in a new tab and the font should be large enough for you to read.

    That’s what they all say… “Oh it’s so big…” until the next one comes along and then you’re listening to “gee I thought it’d be bigger…” and you’re tossed out like last night’s pizza box. They’re never satisfied and we all know in the end size really does matter. So now I’ll have to wait another year but just you wait and see because then mine will be bigger than yours and I will back the title of ” biggest one in the neighborhood”

    We are discussing LG IPS Displays correct? Hehehe

  • http://www.ytmnd.com MH

    So basically a smaller note 3 from LG…or a much more powerful note 2 minus the hideous branded button.

  • Chippah

    snap 800 pushing more pixels = slower performance than G2. ..

  • Chippah

    Still Snapdragon 800? PFFFTTT. GTFO.

  • Noel

    I am certain this device will come with the SD801 or SD805. The specs look impressive and will love to know the battery capacity…this one device on my target list.(HTC One M8, OnePlus One and LG G3)

  • socalrailroader

    LG makes some nice phones, but I have been burned too many times on their slow, and sometimes non existent updates, if they can get those things fixed I might return to them, but I am totally happy right now with my new HTC ONE M8, and HTC is now guaranteeing updates for at least 1 year.

  • Josh

    I hope it has a USB 3.0 port. I tether often and USB 2.0 just doesn’t provide enough power. When USB tethering, my phone either doesn’t increase in charge or even slowly loses charge.

  • John

    STOP INCREASING SCREEN SIZES, seriously, 5″ was already enough for me, Moto X is the best.

  • Na7noo7

    I am soooo pissed off, if it’s for T-Mobile, i’ll upgrade with JUMP.

  • Na7noo7

    I am pissed off. If its for T-Mobile, i’ll upgrade my M8.

    • Scott

      Dude everybody knew the G3 was right around the corner.

  • http://twitter.com/geoff5093 Geoff Johnson

    Finally a rumor we care about!

  • callumshell1

    UHD is 3840×2160. This phone has a 2560 x 1440 display, which is called QHD.

  • Mark Mann

    If this phone is announced before I’m eligible for my first jump with tmo(5 days) I’m holding out for it, otherwise g2 here I come, currently on the only flagship on tmo besides the gflex not on kitkat(xperia z)

  • Sporttster

    Uh…I want this phone. Sd slot? Yessss. 5.5 UHD??? Yessss. I’m not reeeal happy with my Note 3 so hmm….who wants to buy a Note 3??

  • Josh Oberg

    5.5 sounds too big… :(

    • ChristianPasquariello

      You could be right. 5.2″ is just perfect IMHO.

    • BobbyG

      possibly. depends how much bezel there is

  • CaptM

    At this point, I am so on the edge of which device to finally buy, went into a VZ store last week to check out the One M8, it was nice that it was right in between the GS4, Note3 and also the LG G2, got to compare all of them side by side, I thought that the displays were so much better on the GS4 and Note3 but did not really care for the overall look of the interface (icons and such), then I picked up the G2, and I was kind of blow away by it, the display looked great and I really did like the overall look of the skin. I have large hands and the bigger phones all felt fine to me, the only thing that made it bad was the security devices that they put on all of the phones and I really could not get a good overall feel for all of them (they have cases on all of the devices, the dot cover for the M8 and the G2 had a cover on it, and I really wanted to feel all of the phones naked). I’m so torn by the button placement on the G2 and would really like to get a feel of it if it is going to also be on the G3. Think I’ll just have to wait for the G3 to come out so that I can really see all 3 flagships side by side to make up my mind but as of right now, I really think the G3 is going to be my next phone.

  • ddd

    Why snapdragon 800? 801 will give even better battery life than the g2 did.

  • Am79

    This is only acceptable if the “mini” version come swith the same internals and very little bezel. LG chill!

  • Zain Kalwani

    I did my first ever custom rom review! Please tell me how it is! I would love feedback! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xiop_GVp2vE

  • joejoe5709

    Yeesh. I hope it comes with zero bezel because that’s awfully big for a non-phablet. I have a tough enough time reaching all four corners of 5.2″ with one hand and the bezels are already so small that I accidentally hit things when holding the phone. If I wanted a phablet, I’d get the superior Note 3 or upcoming Note 4.

    I don’t know guys… shouldn’t we take this with a teensy grain of salt? I have a hard time believing they’ll boost the screen so much in size and resolution, and not increase the camera even one MP. With the GS5 at a whopping 16MP you’d think they would at least meet in the middle at 14 or 15MP. And at 2.3Ghz, I’d say it’s a Snapdragon 801 or above. While still very capable, a Snapdragon 800 would be somewhat of a disappointment. A microSD card slot would be REALLY nice, but not a deal breaker for me. Even though it might be overkill I could see 3GB of RAM for marketing bragging rights alone. There’s no way I’m going to read all of that mess. Any mention of battery size? I wonder if they’ll keep the buttons on the rear?

    And yeah the G2 is STILL by far one of the more underrated phones. I think a lot of people wrote it off for the rear buttons and that’s just not doing the phone justice. Even today compared to the mighty GS5, it’ll hold its own at a fraction of the price.

    • duke69111

      My thoughts exactly on the size. The G2 is about right, maybe just a tad to big. Bring on the sd card, a newer processor and usb 3.0 and you got something.

  • http://batman-news.com Grimlock

    Nexus prototype? Why yes, please and thank you…

    • joejoe5709

      Doubtful. I’m betting on some Moto Nexus action this year. We’ll be seeing some legacy product this year from Google’s reign.

  • Tony Byatt

    nexus, Nexus, NEXUS…

  • wtfsss

    If it still has an 800, it’ll just be a bigger, slower G2 with a flat ui
    No thanks :( I’ll keep my G2

    • joejoe5709

      Agreed. Even thought the 801 is only marginally more powerful, I’d the the bump is necessary.

  • Hans Dirk Kwazneski

    Will it have the same greasy plastic? If so, I’m out. Matte Red Nexus 5 has me sold. Loved the G2 Screen, but dat plastic. Ugh.

  • crazed_z06

    LG stay copying Samsung

  • Allen George

    My wife’s gonna kill me when the G3 comes out on VZW….

  • Oron

    5.5″ screen. I hope it has the worlds thinnest bezels then.

    • gadget_hero

      Well it is LG, they have had an excellent track record of super thin bezels.

  • Arty McBert

    Can we please stop this stupid pixel display war? 1080p is more than enough. Why should a phone have a higher resolution than most computer monitors?

    • OF

      Why not? I for one cannot understand the hate on new tech. I love crazy specs! Do I need a UHD screen on my phone? Heck no! But I sure ain’t going to complain if you give me one!

      • nvitone23

        so youd rather get a phone with a spec you wont even notice than save money?

        • OF

          Yes lol. And I would notice it seeing as how I’m coming from the S3. Also, what money would I be saving?

          • nvitone23

            the point is that a 1080p screen is more than good enough and that a 1440p screen will be more money out of our pockets

    • joejoe5709

      Because LG is desperate to get attention and they’ll stop at nothing to top their crosstown rival, Samsung. Even if it’s overkill, they’ll do it. I don’t know about you, but all specs the same and the software eerily similar to each other… I’d take the higher resolution screen any day of the week.

  • Sutra

    What is the battery size?

  • jer85008

    I have a G2 and it’s already a handful at the current size. Trading it for a Nexus 5 this weekend as I’ve finally jumped ship from Verizon to TMo.

  • Clint O

    Sounds like a great replacement for my note 2..definitely passing up the m8

  • Mickey Jones

    How about a new logo. Wink-guy needs to go.

  • Ryan Callihan

    A SD 800 is iffy…? Wow.

    • Pratik Holla

      When other flagships are coming with 801, why not? I know in terms of performance for day to day use you will probably see zero difference but LG wont hurt itself by putting it in. Just future proofs it that much more

  • Adrynalyne

    UAProf is so easy to spoof.

    Makes you wonder if someone is just trolling.

    • The Narrator

      Yeah, 800/801 doesn’t sound right. Pretty sure it will sport the 805.

      • hkklife

        801 is my guess…..and I would wager a screen smaller than 5.5″ since that was the first-gen G Pro size…maybe 5.3″ to 5.4″?

        Otherwise those specs look great but I’ll go out on a limb and wager that they are spoofed. I don’t see LG bringing back the microSD slot anytime soon on the G series.

  • ASV505

    Stop making our phones into tablets.

    • Guy Pierce

      Wow you’re complaining about .3 difference? Maybe it will have very small bezels.

      • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

        Actually a .3 difference is quite huge. Just look at the G2 next to a Note 2 or Note 3. Significantly larger phone. But if they can fit that screen onto a device that is not much larger, that would be a huge achievement.

        • Guy Pierce

          agreed!

      • joejoe5709

        .3 is a pretty noticeable difference even with nearly no bezel and even then the phone will be very difficult to handle.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    Better be g2 size. 90% screen or something. Or the 1+1 might shine.

  • Kane Desousa

    Wow, c’mon can we not have a 5.5″ screen on a phone…

    • The Narrator

      In a 5in body, whats the problem?

      • Maxim∑

        Not sure they can push the bezels that far

        • grumpyfuzz

          Oneplus one has a 5.5 inch screen, and it is smaller than the xperia Z1.

  • Guy Pierce
    • Shawn Spring

      Mad props for a M.A.S.H. gif in 2014!

      • Guy Pierce

        Gotta get a little M.A.S.H.!

  • SplashMTN

    The G2 is plenty snappy, but they should at least be putting in the SD801 – not saying that they definitely won’t, but just in case. I won’t be upgrading until the G4 though so I guess it doesn’t really matter to me.

    • LionStone

      Wise move to look towards the G4…I don’t think I’d want the first generation UHD, if’n you know what I mean

  • rawson815

    Hell to the yes!!!!!!….. If true

  • Ken Bosse

    I have the G2, and I’m interested in the G3. Not sure I’d upgrade if it had the same same processor though.

    • AndroidUser00110001

      It will have 805 ;-)

      • T_Dizzle

        That’s what we’ve heard all along.

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      It obviously won’t have the same processor. It will surely be significantly upgraded even if it were to be a Snapdragon 800 (which is highly unlikely).

      They aren’t going to jump to 2K screen and 4K camera and not bump up the specs on the processor.

  • NickA

    Love everything about the G2 but the camera. It has the slowest focus/shutter of an camera I’ve used. Takes great outdoor pics, but forget about non blurry indoor pics.

  • XboxOne

    Why no Snapdragon 801?

    • Champloo

      More accurately, why no 805?

      That was a big advantage they had over the S4 and One)m7), they waited a little longer and released a better phone, wish they’d do the same here, especially if it’s going to really have that resolution.

      These specs have to be wrong. I highly doubt they use the SAME processor and SAME camera with a larger screen and higher resolution. Doesn’t make any sense.

    • OpenMitko

      I’m quite sure it will be at least 801 (if not 805), and the display will be the one on Oppo N7b (without the capacitive buttons). The performance of 800 with such high res display won’t be on par with the competition (S5, M8, Z2), and I’m sure LG would like to be on top in every aspect.

  • litobirdy

    Dam was hoping they’d stay with the 5.2 inch display of the g2.I just can’t go bigger

    • XboxOne

      that’s what she said!

      • Ken Bosse

        got emmmmm

    • NickA

      I know. Remember when they released the G2 they said according to their research, the G2 was the perfect size.

      • TopXKiller

        I wish they took into account a case

        • joejoe5709

          Incipio Feather. Or even the Incipio DualPro isn’t bad. Barely notice it.

        • ki11ak3nn

          True. I have the Spigen Slim Armor on my G2. It makes the phone slightly thicker. But to me it’s easier to hold. Since it’s not so thin and slippery. I don’t mind big phones though. I had a Note 3 and enjoyed it.

      • TheD

        You can still make the screen bigger and keep the same size of the phone.

    • Guest

      But if the overall size was the same or a tad bigger but with a bigger screen wouldnt you like that?

    • Uncle Ruckus

      First the Galaxy S5, then the M8, and now this. I seriously don’t understand why OEMs keep making their phone’s larger.

      • The Narrator

        Because we want it.

        • Grandchild David

          Because people with enormous hands want it*

          • Gideon Waxfarb

            Because people with clown pants want it.

          • Ghost

            Not everyone is a tiny person with girly hands like yourself

          • alzeis

            True I have no problem carrying my Samsung Tab 3 7.0 in my pocket

      • cizzlen

        A lot of you must have tiny hands. I have no problems holding the M8 or the G2. I’m sure the G3 will be fine.

      • Tony Byatt

        Maybe the bezel will be the smallest ever so the phone itself won’t be too big…

      • Haroon Dar

        The overall form size is the same maybe a tad taller but the bezels decreasing leads to an increase in screen size which is why the current trends is bigger screens

        • Gideon Waxfarb

          I got big hands, so no problem there. But I’d have to find out where MC Hammer used to buy pants if I want to actually carry one of these in my pocket.

      • Dustin Crooke

        My G2 with 5.2 in screen is narrower and shorter (surprisingly so) than my S5 with its big bezels and 5.1 in screen. I think they will put that 5.5 in screen in a package the size of the S5. It may still be too big for you but when they advertise all that in a size that’s equal to the S5, it’s gonna get some attention..

    • Ray

      maybe the phone is the same size with zero bezel

    • The Narrator

      Uh, the G2 is significantly smaller or slightly larger* than other 5in phones. No bezels brah!

      • Kazahani

        Nope. I just compared it to the GS4 and it’s both taller and wider.

        • The Narrator

          Okay, well it’s much smaller than the Note 2 which is a 5.5in phablet

          • RoninX

            I actually think 5.5″ with small bezels could be the ideal size…

          • ki11ak3nn

            OnePlus One. 5.5 inches. Supposedly little to no bezel. I’m looking foward to it.

          • BenG

            I’d be all for 5.5″ but at that point I’m going to want a stylus and some of the better note style software.

    • geedee82

      I have no problem with screens getting bigger as long as the bezels get smaller.

    • yo mamma

      Thays what she said. …….

    • Alex Boro

      They should just call it a G3 pro. It’s phablet size now.

    • http://www.getintonursing.com/ Jon

      I would love to have the larger screen, but it is interesting. This puts the G3 in the official Phablet territory. Wonder if they’ll have something smaller as well. But if they can get a 5.5″ screen onto a device with minimal bezels as the G2, it would probably not feel too huge, but the display would be geourgeus and appreciated. I think that’s probably the best way to combat Samsung and beat the Note 3 and GS5. A bigger screen that doesn’t feel like a bigger screen.

      I’m ready to jump ship from my Note 3 to the G3 for the screen resolution alone. I do believe the G2 was always a better phone than the S5.

    • max

      i am hoping for the day that they make a smaller phone but with the same specs. i will not sacrifice my specs for the size of the phone!!!!!!!!!!

      • Fresh360

        This is where Sony blows everyone out of the water…

    • Noel

      I was hoping for the same 5.2″ or a slight bump to 5.3″…but if they can achieve a screen to bezel ratio better than the G2 or that of the Sharp Aquos Xx320Sh, the 5.5″ screen can be manageable.
