It is now certain that LG’s latest flagship smartphone LG G3 is set to launch in India on 21st July as per the updates posted on social networking sites by LG India. Moreover, the LG G3 is up for pre-order on Infibeam.com for Rs 46,990. This website has listed 16GB version for Rs 46,990 and 32GB model for Rs 49,990. According to the website, both the mdoels will be available starting July 25.
One of the key features of G3 is its breathtaking 5.5 inch Quad HD display, with a pixel density of 538ppi, which sets new viewing standard producing images that are sharper and clearer than traditional smartphone displays. LG G3 is equipped with a 3,000mAh removable battery and to further maximize battery efficiency, LG has replaced the metal in the battery cathode with graphite, which will also extend the lifespan of the battery. The G3 runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and its heart is of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with a clock speed of up to 2.5GHz which is paired with 3GB of RAM.
The G3 is equipped with 13MP OIS+ camera with innovative Laser Auto Focus, which is the first of its kind in the smartphone industry. According to LG, this technology enables the G3 to capture the best moment — even in low light — by measuring the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam.
The G3 also incorporates the following new UX features :
Smart Keyboard: Based on Adaptive technology, the smart keyoard reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively “knowing” what word the user intended to type.
Smart Notice: provides suggestions and recommendations based on user behavior, 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.
The LG G3 also offer enhanced security features such as Knock Code, which enables users to unlock their device with a pattern of taps; Content Lock, which keeps personal files safe and hidden from view when sharing the G3 with friends, and Kill Switch, which gives G3 owners the ability to disable their phones remotely in the event of theft.
Going by the hardware and software specifications, the LG G3 is the killer smartphone. In order to be more aggressive in the price-conscious Indian market, LG will have to play with the price to compete with many upcoming brands and the latest launched flagship devices of HTC etc.
