LG G3 specs and 538ppi screen leaked ahead of launch

An LG G3 presentation has leaked online, revealing all of the major specs and some interesting features ahead of Tuesday night’s UK launch, including A QuadHD screen that packs a mighty 538 pixels-per-inch.

A bunch of presentation slides on LG’s G3 smartphone have leaked online, revealing all of this premium flagship mobile’s specs and a fair few of the main features too. LG’s G3 doesn’t officially launch until 6pm on Tuesday May 27 here in London, but the snaps show that it’ll be bigger than last year’s LG G2, packing a QuadHD 5.5-inch IPS screen that stretches beautifully from edge to edge.

The dense 2560×1440 pixel resolution gives a whopping 538ppi, for incredibly lifelike images – that’s sharper than all of the major flagship smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S5, Sony Xperia Z2 and HTC One M8, which typically sport a screen ppi of around 440 (you can see the LG G3 compared with the Galaxy S5 in the above shot).

Looks like Tuesday night’s launch event will hold few surprises, as most of the other specs have leaked too, along with full frontals of the sexy new frame. That 8.9mm body looks pretty similar to the G2’s, complete with rear-mounted power button – but we’re hoping it’ll be a bit firmer and nicer to hold. You’ll get the expected range of features, including 4G LTE support, Android KitKat and a massive 3,000mAh battery (the G2’s two-day battery life was one of its best features).

We’re also intrigued by the selfie cam which appears in one of the slides. Looks like LG may have added some kind of funky gesture control to take the much-maligned selfie snaps, although we’re kind of puzzled as to what it entails. The illustration shows a hand clenching into a fist – could the camera recognise gestures like the Xbox Kinect? We’re sure the usual voice control will be implemented too, so you can take shots by yelling “kimchi!”

LG always crams its phones full of interesting, unusual and original features, so we’re sure there’ll still be some surprises on the night – we’ll be covering the launch live from 6pm on May 27, so check back for a full hands-on review.
