lg g3 announcement

As expected, LG took to the stage today to announce the LG G3. Things went off without a hitch, and the new flagship is just as sleek and stylish as we’d thought it would be. It’s a beast, and it’s going to be a hard phone to beat…

There weren’t really any surprises today as LG unveiled the G3, and the company spent a lot of time talking about the new features, “simplicity” and that beautiful display. We’re not going to get technical with it, but we’ll just say that you should definitely notice a difference between the LG G3’s display and that of your typical FHD smartphone.lg.g3-launch

As for the specs, they are exactly what the rumor mill predicted and that’s not a bad thing…LG_G3_Metallic_Black_Front_1

Some other things to note would be the 1watt speaker with a booster amp, touch & shoot, knock on & knock code, a smart adjustable keyboard, and an improved selfie mode.  The back button got a bit of a redesign as well, and as for the material the device is made out of… it’s being called “metallic skin” which is essentially plastic.

The LG G3 looks to be the smartphone to beat at the moment, and it will be interesting to see what surprises Samsung and HTC have in mind for their “prime” editions. Are you sold on the LG G3 or will you wait for to get a water resistant Prime S5 or M8?
