Rumours of a 1440p Screen on the LG G3 Persist

A series of specifications linked to the LG G3 have been discovered inside a list of technical details on US network Sprint’s website. Once again, the included specs show the phone will have a Quad HD screen, which means the pixel count will be an amazing 2560×1440.

We’ve already seen the first smartphones with a 1440p screen announced this year, such as the Oppo Find 7, but the LG G3 could be the first mainstream device to come with  such a high resolution. It’ll almost certainly be the first to be widely available in the UK. LG Display has also already shown off a 5.5-inch 1440p screen, but it’s not certain the G3 will have such a large display.

The phone has the model number LS990, and is also shown to run Android 4.4.2. Recently, a screenshot was leaked supposedly showing the G3′s home screen, and it hinted LG would be introducing a brand new design for its 2014 flagship smartphone.

The profile also states the G3 will be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM. We’d be surprised if the chip is the Snapdragon 800, and not the newer Snapdragon 801, seen in most high-end Android phones this year, such as the Galaxy S5.

LG will be the last company to announce its top-end Android phone in 2014, but we’re still waiting for a launch event – or a press release – to be confirmed. Previous rumours have said the phone will be coming on 17 May, which gives us a little over a month to prepare.
