LG could be ready to show us its flagship 2014 Android smartphone, the G3. It has sent out invitations to an event which it will hold in London on 27 May. It gives very little away, aside from hiding its “G” logo inside a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, saying “To be simple is to be Great.”
The company is going all out with the event too, holding the main show in London, but also running satellite events in six other cities around the world. There’s no doubt whatever it has to show us is of global interest. LG is later than the competition with its major smartphone release, with both the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8 already on sale.
It’s not the worst thing LG could do though. Not only does it avoid having its thunder stolen by either of the above companies, but also if the rumours are correct, we’re in for something special.
Apparently, the LG G3 will come with a large – possibly 5.5-inches – screen with an impressive 2560×1440 pixel resolution. That’s higher than its closest rivals, and equal to phones such as the Oppo Find 7, which isn’t widely available. If it’s true, expect the G3 to make a considerable impact. Other possible features include a new look user interface, a revised set of rear-mounted controls, a quad-core processor, and a 13 megapixel camera.
We’ll bring you all the news from LG’s event on the day.
