LG G3 Launched With 5.5 inch Quad HD Display

The much anticipated LG G3 was launched today at an event which took place simultaneously in London, New York, San Francisco, Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul. The LG G3 will be available in Korea from 28th May and the company will announce roll-out plans for the overseas markets later on. The G3 has metallic skin with matte finish which will keep it clean and fingerprint-free. The G3 will be available in five colors: Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red. This smartphone will also have the Rear Key and a newly designed power key and volume buttons.

The only error made by us was in speculating about the front camera. We had mentioned that the G3 will have 5MP front shooter whereas it houses the 2.1MP camera. Rest of the specifications are exactly the same.

The G3’s breathtaking Quad HD display has 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 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. Rather than having to focus on the subject in preview mode and then pressing the shutter button, with the G3, tapping the subject to focus will simultaneously also trigger the shutter. Moreover, the G3’s 2.1MP front camera incorporates several new enhancements such as a larger image sensor and larger aperture for more light throughput and better-looking selfies.

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. 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 customized with frequently used symbols for even faster input.

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. If you have a large number of un used files or apps on the G3 taking up valuable space, Smart Notice will ask if you would like to delete or uninstall them. 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.” Wheter the last feature will work in India, will be interesting to see.

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.

The LG G3 will also offer the recently announced new premium accessories including QuickCircle case, LG Tone Infinim Bluetooth stereo headset, and compact and foldable wireless charger. The prices of these accessories have also not been disclosed by LG.
