LG G3 Multi-angle Press Renders in Titanium, Gold, and White

Just when you thought the LG G3 had been leaked in its entirety, the proverbial floodgates open yet again. Over the weekend, famed Twitter personality @evleaks posted multi-angle press images of the G3 in gold, white, and titanium. If you’ll recall, those are the colors expected to be available at launch.

LG G3 rumors have run the gamut, but the leaks over the past week have given us a pretty good idea of what to expect. That odd second sensor near the phone’s 13MP rear camera is likely a cutout for laser autofocus, and the phone is sporting either a Snapdragon 801 or 805 processor. 3GB of RAM is a likely shoe-in, as is a high-capacity battery greater than 3000mAh.

On the software front, a reworked Android skin – LG’s so-called Flatter UI – is imminent, possibly along with a new virtual assistant or contextually-aware widgets and apps.

All in all, the G3 is shaping up to be LG’s biggest smartphone launch ever. Who else is excited for the launch event on May 27?

  • Byrd

    Oh hey m8. Wait, never mind…..

  • dsass600

    Where’s the charging port?

  • Laser Auto-Focus?!

    My body is ready

  • sonicyoof
  • Daistaar

    No headphone port top or bottom?

  • JB

    Rear facing speaker is a no go for me ….I can’t handle that I mean at least put it on the bottom

  • Rob

    Is this really going to be a metal exterior or is it that faux metal look that Samsung used on the S3?

  • Detonation

    From other leaks and pics, isn’t the back still just plastic but with the brushed metal look? I don’t think it’s going to be actual metal like the M8

    • Bob G

      I wouldn’t want it to be. Rather have wireless Qi Charging!

  • tu3218

    This needs to be water resistant. If the S5 is water resistant, and the M8 Prime is going to be water proof or resistant, this needs to be as well imo. I love the Samsung did that with the S5. Set a precedent for all companies to do the same. Just about the only good thing Samsung did with the S5.

  • Jake L

    Honestly though for the $700-$800 it will likely cost I would rather buy the One Plus One for much cheaper. Ill make my decision when the actual announcement comes a week from Tuesday.

  • RXG9

    I wish this had a removable battery.

    • Chippah

      How do you know it dosen’t? we see no indication of a side mounted sim slot like the G2… This is evidence of a removable back cover.

      • RXG9

        I don’t know, I was just assuming, because the G2 didn’t have one (except for the Korean version). It would be awesome if it does have a removable battery though because then this might be my next phone.

  • Rodeojones000

    The only thing that will keep me from trading up from my G2 to this will be the availability of root and a bootloader exploit allowing custom recoveries.

  • yeah


  • AndrewScottRox

    Good looking device. I may actually like the white more then the black. Can’t go wrong though with either. I wonder if they put the notification light on the back again or moved it to the front.

  • htowngtr

    Ok, I want it now.

  • M3D1T8R

    I thought this phone looked pretty good until seeing these very odd two tone front pics. Hideous. That and the bad rear facing speaker makes this a no go. Too bad, everything else looks pretty good about this.

    • bogy25

      Black electrical tape should take care of it for me….that or some window tint

      • Ray

        There will be decals I’m sure no need to Redneck it up

  • Chris Wilkey

    This will be my m7 replacement if it has the 805.. Otherwise the 801 is going to be working quite a bit harder pushing all those pixels..

  • LightofHonor

    The asymmetry is ugly.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      I’m more of a bsymmetry kind of guy

  • Josh

    Man they could have totally put front facing speakers and this phone would be perfect

  • mcdonsco

    I just picked up a perfect condition G2 on eBay for under $300…how much cheaper do you need it?

  • Josh

    If LG didn’t put their name on the front this phone would be so sexy

    • joe23521

      If they made the phone, I’m okay with their name on it. Provided it’s done tastefully. Most all consumer products are branded.

  • duke69111

    I hope the G3 doesnt suffer from the battery problems the G2 now has after the Kit Kat Update. It destroyed my battery.

    • Chris Choncek

      Factory reset takes care of this most of time.

      • duke69111

        I started with a fresh install unfortunately.

    • Silky Johnson

      What problems are you having? My battery life has been phenomenal still after the kitkat update

      • duke69111

        My battery life has been cut in half since the Kit Kat Rom came out. I even did a fresh install to begin with. Sitting idle, my phone uses 10%-20% battery over 2-3 hours, where before it would not leave 100%.

        Numerous comments on the OTA update post show people are having major problems with battery life.


        That’s good though that you are not have any issues.

        • Mike

          I’m having the same issues with battery since the KK update. I am now constantly killing apps and checking to see what is using my battery and there is nothing out of the ordinary. Did a factory reset I was so bummed. No change. Used to have 10% battery before bed and wake up to 8-9%. Now if it’s under 15% before bed, it’s dead when I wake up. Used to charge every 48 hours and now it’s twice daily.

          • duke69111

            I hope they push out a fix soon or I’m going back to 4.2.2.

          • flosserelli

            I think letting your battery drain that low every day shortens its life more quickly. I may be wrong, but I have read that from multiple sources.

    • Rodeojones000

      Problems? I never have to charge my phone during the day (probably could skip charging at night quite often as well) and can easily get 4+ hours of screen on time with KitKat. In fact, my battery life improved after the update.

    • No problems with battery life on my g2 and kitkat (t-mobile Europe). Over night it uses around 5%of battery without turning anything off.

  • Mark Aaron Collado

    http://i.imgur.com/qVZZL.gif G3 is always a YES

    • Skrewee Lewee

      AJ Lee is also a Yes! Yes! Yes!

      • Justin Hall

        One more YES!

      • michael arazan

        I’ve only got that excited when their tops pop off during a match, great videos of women wwe wrestlers continuing the match even though their tops came off, I’ve seen a few

  • Jonathan Williams

    Still waiting for release so I can get a cheaper G2.

    • gambit07

      I just picked one up for $200 on VZW! They are fairly affordable right now if you keep a close watch

    • duke69111

      Unless you are buying off contract, its currently free on Verizon.

  • Ray

    The 2 tones on the front isn’t nice but I’m sure I can stick a decal on the top to match the bottom

    • SplashMTN

      I was really hoping they’d keep the all black front like they have for the G2. Not a huge issue IMO, but it would look nicer.

      • Ray

        Im guessing they did that because the botton bezel is actually metal and the top black part is covered by glass. The metal was probably to thick to fit under the glass but they could have painted the black to match each phone.

        • SplashMTN

          I was under the impression it was plastic (just an assumption, nothing really to back it up). If it’s metal then it makes more sense.

          • Ray

            if it’s plastic well then they just made a bad design choice.

  • joe23521

    After being disappointed by both the M8 and S5, all my hope lies in this thing not having any deal-breaking features.

    If it comes with the 801 and not the 805 processor, will it be able to handle the QHD display with buttery ease?

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    So is there still a question about Metal vs Plastic? If it is plastic I don’t mind since it looks really nice and not like Samsung Glossy/Chintzy plastic. Though are we sure yet?

    This phone is kind of growing on me…and as of a year ago you couldn’t get me to look twice at an LG device.

    • Same here, you couldn’t get me to look at any phone that wasn’t Samsung but this thing is growing on me also. Especially the on screen button deal. I’ve been dying for those.

    • LSH99

      I have to think we’re looking at plastic here. I’ve gone back and forth based on the rumors, but seeing the white version really makes me lean towards plastic. Otherwise, it’d be silver, I think.

  • paul_cus

    And you thought the m8 was leak city.

    • joe23521

      This gives me hope that it will be available immediately, like the m8.

  • Defenestratus

    Might ditch the Note 3 for this guy. Screen size is similar. Just want to know if it will have wireless charging.

    • PoisonApple31

      Just wait until the Note 4 is released, then you can decide if you like the G3 or Note 4 better. If you still want the G3, it’ll be cheaper then.

      • Defenestratus

        I’m on T-mo so when the Note 4 comes out I can decide then. I can change phones like underwear if I want.

        • jimbob

          So, not that often?

      • Maxim∑

        By then the G4 might be announced

        • PoisonApple31

          Cause the G3 and G4 will be announced this year?

          • Maxim∑

            Dont need your sass, Samsung does it all the time. And the G2 isnt even a year old

          • PoisonApple31

            I feel bad, did I miss something in translation here? You get down-voted for a comment that makes no sense, then up-vote your own comment to get rid of the “0” in the counter, and then make another comment that suggests LG could release the G3 and G4 in the same year because Samsung does that all the time. Are you on a bad trip or what?

          • Guest

            its not what I am not was, it cannot be and when I did it wouldnt go Samsung wouldnt and 4GS becmause it cannot be same as when did.

    • The Narrator

      You’ll be much more pleased with LG.

  • ToddAwesome

    Aside from that tiny speaker, this is the new hotness!

    • PoisonApple31

      The only thing I don’t like about it is that the speaker is on the back of the phone.

      • flosserelli

        Meh. I am used to cupping my hand anyway, so it won’t be a dealbreaker.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          If you had an HTC M7 or M8 you can use one hand to cup something else and be free.

          • Ray

            Good one its like that Taco bell commercial who need a one handed breakfast lol

          • flosserelli

            I bought a M8 as a gift, and I must admit the speakers are awesome. But for me personally, I just need something that is loud enough to hear calls/text ringtones. I use earbuds for music and videos.

          • Big EZ

            It’s a really good idea, but man that’s just way too much bezel for the front facing speakers on the M7 & M8. Maybe next year LG can keep the bezels the same and add front facing speakers. That would be one hell of a feat.

          • JB

            The new Sony xperia Z2 has front facing speakers while keeping the bezels at a minimum

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Speaker on the back is a horrible idea. It doesn’t make sense honestly. Though as long as it’s loud enough

      • AndroidUser00110001

        The F Flex has speaker in back and it’s louder than the G2. So maybe the G3 will have similar setup as G Flex.

        I am hoping the G3 is not as locked down as the G Flex. Still no root yet for KiyKat update.

      • The Narrator

        I like headphones

      • bogy25

        I thought all phones have the speaker on the back? My Razr maxx hd does, wife’s Rezound does, Thunderbolt does….what am I missing….

        • Skrewee Lewee

          My Note 3 has bottom speaker.

          • AS

            I keep blocking it with my thumb

          • Skrewee Lewee

            Uggghhhh… Tell me about it?! I do that all the time.

        • jimbob

          From the list you just gave, it looks like you are missing a phone made after 2012.

          But seriously, the HTC One M7 and M8 both have front-facing speakers and several phones have bottom-facing speakers.

      • j

        Yes it makes sense.. honestly. From a mechanical design perspective, there’s more room in that area of the rear to fit the speaker. Front facing speaker would result in a larger bezel, which is NOT what LG is going for.

        • JB

          It doesn’t necessarily mean bigger bezels …look at the new Sony xperia z2 it has front facing speakers while keeping the bezels slimer then htc

      • eee

        Please stop playing stuff on speaker. No one wants to hear you play Bieber.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          You could do better.

  • Another thing is I don’t really care about having a removable battery but this thing BETTER and I mean BETTER have a ext sd slot. That would really kill it for me if it didn’t.

    • TSY87

      with all the issues with kitkat and expandable memory… I wouldnt be surprised if it didnt. I know there are workarounds but its rather annoying.

    • duke69111

      I’m fine with the 32gb’s of internal storage for running the phone, but it would be nice to have an sd slot even for just music, photos, roms, nandroids, ect. Thats what eats up most of my storage.

  • I’m really hoping this phone lives up to what everybody hypes the LG “G brand” up to be, though I expect it not to compare to Samsungs camera and in other areas. I passed on the S5 and I want to get this phone to hold me over until the Note 4 is released..

    • The Narrator

      The G2’s camera kicked ass, and this one definitely will.

      The G3 will sell big time if LG puts in an 805 instead of that last gen
      801 to run that screen. Otherwise, with an 801, it’s just another
      smart phone with slightly lower performance and battery life driving all
      those pixels.

      • The Narrator

        The Find 7 does just fine with an 801. and a few months isn’t last gen, buddy.

        • j

          Not really what he’s saying. The 801 is essentially an 800 with slightly higher clock rates (cpu, gpu, memory). The 805 utilizes next gen cpu core at an even higher clock rate, next gen Adreno gpu, and over double the memory bandwidth. A G3 with massively higher pixel count running an 801 will potentially perform worse than the G2. An 805 will allow it to best the performance of the predecessor. Will LG stay stagnant? Hope not.

          • Jerry

            The Narrator is not the brightest bulb on the tree.

      • Maxim∑

        G2 is doing more than fine with the S800

      • Ray

        i doubt the general public buys/doesn’t buy this phone over a 801/805

      • eee

        At the end of the day, it is just an ARM processor that is no where near as good as x86. It is just a phone, 801 or 805.

        • AS

          Are you saying they should use an x86 CPU in a phone? What kind of battery life would you expect?

          • eee

            It would at least be better life than my gnex.

          • AS

            Really? I donated my old gnex to my dad last November and battery life seems fine. I did get a replacement battery from amazon for it, not expensive.

            I was impressed at how good the gnex looked after 2 years. Almost no wear marks at all and I never put a case on it or screen protector.

        • flosserelli

          Which is why the mobile market is flooded with x86 devices, right?

      • BananaBob

        We the phone enthusiasts know the difference between the 801 & 805. But we don’t make phones sell like crazy. We are probably only 5% of the market! This is a gorgeous phone with a 801 or the 805. I bet you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference, besides a few hundred points on antutu

            That has nothing on the 6000+ Americans that have died as a result of Bush. Lets not forget the financial collapse in 2008 because of him, and the 5+ similar Benghazi attacks. Oh and the much more vacations he took.

            Oh and you liberal apologists seem to think if one person is bad, it excuses the other. Guess what, even if Hitler was worse than Stalin, it doesn’t make Stalin any less of a monster.

            We have no business with Russia, Obama is perfectly fine with worrying about our problems here. Such as not letting religious crazies try and take away equal rights, and getting crybabies out of congress.

          • John

            you mean the cheap vacations to TX? or you want to talk multiple millions obummer uses for all of his vacations? Also, the 6000 figure you’re throwing around is the # of innocents killed under obummers direction by our own police force… this number alone is higher than all the soldiers we lost since 9/11 (I was fortunate enough to live through 3 tours, and I’m more afraid as a law abiding citizen when I see a cop.)

            So no, he wasn’t thinking about bush. He was thinking about OBAMA. I’ll get this out of the way first, I’m not a republican, I hated GW, and I did not vote for obummer.

            Bush had the economy growing at 6 percent, unemployment was down to 5.4 percent; after 2 wars and 9/11, the debt was 9 trillion.

            In six years of Obummer, real unemployment is still around 11 percent, the economy is on life support, and the debt is a whopping 18 trillion…no wars, just stupid spending.

            So yes, that’s obummer, tossing cash (which has no value because he keeps printing it) out of the window.
