LG G3 May Sport Snapdragon 805 Processor, Higher Capacity Battery

LG’s fabled successor to the fantastic G2 may have different specifications than were initially rumored. According to TechManiacs sources, LG was obfuscating the G3’s true hardware with engineering samples, but final production devices will pack more powerful internals.

An insider says the G3 will sport a Snapdragon 805 SoC and a 3200mAh battery. That should allay concerns about battery life and processing power, as both represent a step up from the G2. The source also corroborated other specs, confirming 3GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560) screen, 32GB of storage, a 13 MP camera, and a microSD slot.

The camera is reportedly the Sony IMX 214 Exmor RS, which is the shooter found in the OnePlus One. Of course, OIS+ will probably give the G3 the edge when it comes to low-light image and video quality, but we’ll have to compare for ourselves when both phones launch later this summer.

The beastly LG G3 is expected to be announced May 27. If I hadn’t upgraded to the G2 last month, I’d definitely plan on preordering. Anyone else?

    I have g2 and besides “design” this phone really for the most part in 2013 was miles above everything else the big 4 criteria speed, ppd, camera,and size, seeing the leaks, they have improved design, sound, and yet again hardware specs far above everything else 10 million devices they are projecting to sell, if they keep the price under the S5 as they did with the G2 a very possible feat

    I finally have an lg g2 back in hand now and honestly its BETTER than the recently released m8 & s5 (both of which I bought and returned).

    Its just buttery smooth, FAST, accurate…size is perfect (there’s my one and only g3 concern), great battery life and charges FAST when I need to charge it on the go. App switching and multi-tasking is a breeze, it just does everything instantly when I tell it to. On the s5 it was wait, touch, wait, touch, wait…got real old real fast. I can switch in and out of apps stupidly fast on this on the stock ROM…awesome. Why did I even sell my last one?

    One of the things I can’t figure out is on every phone i have I use the Google keyboard, yet on the m8 and the s5 I constantly had typo’s, run together words etc … It was a headache constantly fixing typing errors. On the g2, SOMEHOW, I dont have the same issues; using the same keyboard?

    Something about this screen is FAR more accurate than other phones…I love it!

    Can’t wait for the g3, just hope that it isn’t approaching phablet size.

    LG is the way to go, my G2 was my first LG phone but not my last. I used and returned the S5 the second I heard the G3 was going to be announced on the 27th.

    Guys this phone is gonna be sick but don’t forget that the software that will be operating on this phone will be updated at most once. I running an LG G Pro thats still on 4.1.2

    The G3 is shaping up real nice. Depending on the next iteration of the Moto X, this might win my $$$.
