LG Electronics had just announced their latest flagship, the G3 smartphone, the successor of their award winning LG G2. The new smartphone sports a new look, featuring a lightweight polished metallic skin on the rear cover with a Floating Arc form factor that they are claiming to be comfortable for one handed use. It also features their innovative Rear Keys.
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.
Highlights of the new G3 include:
- 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
- 13MP OIS+ (Optical Image Stabilizer Plus) camera with a revolutionary Laser Auto Focus that can shoot stunningly sharp images in a fraction of the time required by conventional phone camera
- Polished metallic skin on the rear cover that is lightweight, fingerprint-proof and most of all, beautiful
- Floating Arc form factor that feels incredibly comfortable in one hand and incorporates the innovative design heritage of the Rear Key

LG will also be offering a collection of new premium accessories to accompany the LG G3:

In addition to the QuickCircle Case, LG will offer a lineup of Slim Guard Cases and premium Slim Hard Cases to protect the G3 in handsome style.

LG G3 will begin rolling out worldwide on over 170 carriers on May 28, starting with South Korea.
Wow. Talk about top of the line features. This phone has most of the newest tech. I’m a bit curious about the Laser Auto Focus and how it’s executed, and the new “redesigned graphic user interface” that is consistent with the Simple is the New Smart concept they are espousing. I hope they go with flat icons or something like that.
