Is this the LG G3? Gold variant follows path of previous leaks


We have seen the upcoming LG G3 rise from being photographed with a case and only showing its unique back to the world to a purported white variant showing up in various low light conditions and even in clearer surroundings. Now we have what we expect will be the crowning variant of them all, the gold-coloured version. GSMArena, the guys who first captured the G3 thanks to a tipster in its hazy surroundings before serial leaker @evleaks did a nice photoshop job with a grainy zoomed image of the same at close range to reveal the unique backside button arrangement, are at it again this time round showing us what is likely the G3 itself in flesh.

The LG G3 will be unveiled on the 27th of May (just three weeks away) in two sets of three cities over a two day period and is expected to top the flagship smartphones released by traditional nemesis Samsung (Galaxy S5), HTC (One M8), Sony (Xperia Z2) and the newly unveiled slim and gorgeous Huawei Ascend P7. New faces Oppo and the startup its holding company has interests in, OnePlus are not viewed as competitors to the established order as the two still have a long way to go in meeting the demand that comes with flagship smartphones and do not have a supply chain even half as expansive and established.

An aluminium body build, a 2560 x 1440 pixels display, 3 GB RAM, a Snapdragon 805 processor, 13 MP camera, 32 GB internal storage and a mammoth battery (3200 mAh) will be some of the specs that the upcoming latest member of LG’s prime G series will pack. In tow will be Android 4.4 KitKat with a super slim custom skin that is said to be more focused on minimalism and better usability than the current horrible experience that the UI in the G2 brings.

Here’s to hoping the device really lives up to all the hype and expectations. After getting the thorny flagship smartphone software updates issue right after a long time, this is their moment to shine.
