Could we see another new flagship device from LG this year or early next? If the latest rumour is correct, there’s a chance we will, and it may be a challenger to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. LG has already taken on the Galaxy S4 with the LG G2, and has recently re-entered the tablet market with the G Pad 8.3, so it appears keen to match Samsung step-for-step.
While the Galaxy Note 3 may be LG’s target, the rumour indicates it’ll take its inspiration from Sony’s Xperia Z Ultra. Sony’s smartphone/tablet hybrid is one of the largest on sale, boasting a massive 6.4-inch screen, something which LG may adopt for its own model. A 1080p resolution seems certain if it does. As the G2 has a big 5.2-inch screen, it’s fitting LG should choose such a large display size for its next device.
There’s no mention of which processor LG may use, but as it uses the Snapdragon 800 for the G2, we’d imagine it’ll also be fitted to this device. It could be accompanied by a 3GB of RAM too, just like the Galaxy Note 3.
The report concludes with talk of an 8-megapixel camera and Android KitKat being installed. While no release date for LG’s phone is given, if Android 4.4 is going to be used, it won’t be just yet. Google may have announced the next version of Android, but it hasn’t provided any details on its features or release, so we may have to wait until next year for LG’s new phablet.
