LG G3 may have 16 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM
The LG G3 is coming soon, that’s clear. It may get announced in May or June and could be in stores in July. Earlier this month someone found a user agent profile for what seemed to be Sprint’s version of the G3, and that got us a list of specs for the handset.
And now, that user agent profile (UAProf) has been updated. Previously, the main camera was listed as being a 13 MP unit, while now it’s been bumped up to 16 MP – matching the snapper in the Samsung Galaxy S5, which is basically going to be the G3’s biggest competitor. Something similar has happened to the front camera, though on a whole different level: it’s now a 2.4 MP shooter, up just 0.3 MP from before.
RAM amount wasn’t in the UAProf a few days ago, but it is now. 2 GB is what the G3 will get, it seems. LG once again matches the Samsung Galaxy S5, while not, for whatever reason, wanting to best it in this regard. The internal storage amount is unchanged at 32 GB, and there will be microSD card support as well. Most importantly, the 2,560×1,440 touchscreen is still in.
The software version running the show (at least for now) is Android 4.4 KitKat. The chipset used is still the 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, but My LG Cell Phones suggests that this is what Sprint and LG are currently using to develop the software atop of, and is not necessarily the silicon that will be used in production devices. For LG’s sake, let’s hope so, since spec fanatics will be sure to dismiss this particular chip as being too old in the summer of 2014. After all, it is the exact same platform that the LG G2 sports, and that’s the G3’s predecessor.
What these changes to the UAProf probably mean is that development of the G3 is still ongoing over at LG HQ, and the company is testing multiple hardware versions of its next flagship smartphone.
