LG Plans Snapdragon 805 Version of LG G3

South Korean mobile phone maker LG Electronics might be set to make official a new flavor of its flagship LG G3 handset, the latest reports on the matter suggest.

Apparently, the company is considering the release of a Snapdragon 805 version of the device and could make it official as soon as the next month. No official confirmation on the matter has been provided as of now, but rumor has it that LG is planning the launch of this handset so as to counter the premium Galaxy S5 phone iteration that Samsung has been long rumored to be working on. For those out of the loop, we should note that Samsung was initially said to release the aforementioned premium handset in the form of Galaxy S5 Prime, but that it is now said to have changed its mind. Instead, the company will kick off a new series of premium smartphones, called Galaxy F, and the very first device in the lineup might become official as soon as the next month. The phone is said to arrive on the market with a Quad HD Super AMOLED touchscreen display, a Snapdragon 805 processor, and 3GB of RAM.

However, it seems that LG is already getting ready to counter the device, and the aforementioned Snapdragon 805-enabled LG G3 will help it do that. The handset should include the same specs as the currently available variant, except for the faster processor, of course. LG G3 went official last month with a 5.5-ich Quad HD touchscreen, a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 chipset inside, and 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal memory, or 3GB of RAM with 32GB of storage. Moreover, the high-end mobile phone features a microSD memory card slot, as well as a 13-megapixel camera on the back, with support for 4K video recording, and a front camera for video calling. LG G3 runs under the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system, with LG’s own set of customizations and exclusive applications loaded on top.

The existence of a Snapdragon 805-based LG G3 is only a rumor for the time being, but chances are that LG will indeed release it, as it does need to ensure that it can keep sales high. However, with info coming from Naver also suggesting that the new G3 model will be capable of providing users with download speeds of up to 225Mbps, chances are that LG will release it only in South Korea, at least in the beginning, as PhoneArena notes. Hopefully, more details on this smartphone variant will emerge in the near future, so keep an eye on this space for updates on the matter.
