LG unveils G3 smartphone with QHD display

first_imgLG Electronics has introduced the much anticipated smartphone, the G3. The LG flagship smartphone is the successor to the company’s well-received LG G2.It was launched in cities like London, New York, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul simultaneously.In a press release, the South Korean tech major said, “Developed under the Simple is the New Smart concept, LG G3 is a culmination of consumer research based on LG’s product development philosophy, Learning from You. The LG G3 was empowered with the best of what current technology has to offer, providing consumers with a user experience more ambitious than anything offered before by LG.””The smartest innovation in a fast evolving smartphone market is creating harmony between advanced technology and a simplified user experience,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “LG G3 is the result of our effort to actualise that idea into a tangible product. And we are extremely pleased with the result,” he further said.LG 3 highlightsThe LG G3 comes with a 5.5-inch Quad HD display with 538ppi with four times the resolution of HD and almost two times higher resolution than a Full HD display.The device sports a 13-megapixel OIS+ (Optical Image Stabiliser Plus) camera with a laser auto focus that can shoot sharp images in a fraction of the time required by conventional phone cameras. It has polished metallic skin on the rear cover that is lightweight and fingerprint-proof.  LG 3 features Smart Keyboard: The device comes with a smart keyboard that reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analysing typing habits and intuitively “knowing” what word the user intended to type. The height of the keyboard can also be adjusted to better fit the user’s hands and position of the thumbs. Individual keys can also be customised with frequently used symbols for even faster input.advertisementSmart Notice: Like a personal assistant, Smart Notice provides suggestions and recommendations based on user behaviour, phone usage patterns and location to offer user information when it’s needed the most. Smart Notice can remind you of a call you declined earlier and ask if you would like to call that person back. But what sets Smart Notice apart from other personal assistants is its natural language capabilities. For example, instead of just displaying today’s temperature and weather forecast, Smart Notice will make a recommendation such as, “You may want to take an umbrella today since it will rain this evening.”Smart Security: Understanding the importance of maintaining and securing confidential data when smartphones are shared, misplaced, lost or stolen, the LG G3 offers a number of enhanced security features such as: Knock CodeTM enables users to unlock their device with a pattern of taps. Merging security and convenience, users can create a personalised code that can be entered anywhere on the screen. With the G3, users have the option of being able to use KnockON to wake the screen to check the time as well as enter the home screen directly via Knock CodeTM.Content Lock: It keeps personal files safe and hidden from view when sharing the G3 with friends. When the G3 is connected to a PC, Content Lock prevents file previews so the data is still safe. The locked files can reside either on the G3’s internal memory or on the microSD card.Kill Switch: The feature gives G3 owners the ability to disable their phones remotely in the event of theft. The Kill Switch also allows content on the G3 to be wiped so personal information won’t be compromised. Kill Switch also includes antivirus scanning and remote wipe and lock, among other essential features.Starting on May 28 in South Korea, the LG G3 will begin rolling out worldwide on over 170 carriers, with UK availability from  July 1, 2014.Key Specifications: Chipset: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 (up to 2.46GHz Quad-Core)Display: 5.5-inch Quad HD IPS (2560 x 1440, 538ppi)  Memory: 16GB eMMC ROM / 2GB DDR3 RAM / microSD slot (128GB max)Camera: Rear 13.0MP with OIS+ and Laser Auto Focus / Front 2.1MPBattery: 3,000mAh (removable)Operating System: Android 4.4.2 Kit KatSize: 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9mmWeight: 149gNetwork: 4G / LTE / HSPA+ 21 Mbps (3G)Connectivity: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth Smart Ready (Apt-X), NFC,  SlimPort, A-GPS/Glonass, USB 2.0Colour: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Goldlast_img
