LG G3 Expected to Arrive in June, Sample Image Leaks Online




South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics has been long rumored to plan the launch of a new flagship Android-based smartphone before the end of this year, yet no specific info on when the device might hit shelves has been provided as of now.

According to the latest reports out there, however, we might see the mobile phone made available sometime in June, provided, of course, that LG’s plans on the matter pan out. Moreover, the upcoming smartphone is rumored to hit the market as a true Galaxy S5 killer, something that has been rumored a while ago as well. The info comes from giga.de, which has it on good authority that the device will become official sometime in June, in line with previous reports on LG’s plans on the matter, which suggested that May could be the earliest when we’ll see the new smartphone. LG has already confirmed that it is working on a successor for the LG G2, but it did not provide further details on what to expect from the device or on when it will release it.

However, the phone’s availability in early summer appears almost confirmed, as another source claims that LG could have it on shelves sometime in July. A recent post on ortud.com brought to the web a leaked camera sample coming from the LG G3, while also unveiling some more info on the device and its capabilities. As phonearena notes, the source of the leaked photo claims that LG could launch the mobile phone sometime in July. Moreover, the poster claims that one of his friends has been testing the G3, and that the camera sample should prove it. The sample photo indeed appears to have been shot with an LG G3, given that the EXIF data attached to it clearly mentions model number LG D972, previously associated with the upcoming device.

The smartphone is also said to come to the market with a 13-megapixel camera on the back, with a sensor identical to the one included on the LG G Pro 2. Optical image stabilization capabilities are also expected to be available for users. However, with no official confirmation on the matter available as of now, we’ll have to take the info with a grain of salt, at least until some more consistent proof of LG G3’s existence emerges, if not until LG formally introduces the new model. LG has been long trying to grab some more market share on the smartphone segment from Samsung, but it has had little success in this regard until now. However, should LG G3 indeed prove to be the Galaxy S5 killer that it has already been teased to be, we could see the odds turning in its favor, that’s for sure.
