LG today announced the LG G3, its flagship smartphone for 2014. The G3 follows design ideas set by the G2 and later refined by the G Flex. The defining feature of the device is the display, which is one of the industry's first quad HD (2560 x 1440) screens. It measures 5.5 inches across the diagonal, making for a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch. The G3 has a "metallic" (but made of plastic) rear cover to boost its visual and tactile appeal. Like the G2, the volume toggle and home buttons are placed on the back of the phone rather than the sides. LG claims this makes the buttons more natural to use when the device is held in the hand. The G3 has a 13-megapixel camera aided by optical image stabilization, laser-assisted auto-focus, and dual-LED flash. The device has a 2.1-megapixel user-facing camera with wide aperture. The G3 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with four cores at 2.5GHz each. The device will come in several different configurations with respect to memory, including a 2GB model and a 3GB model. Internal storage will range between 16GB and 32GB. The G3 has a built-in 1W speaker with Boost AMP for improved sound reproduction. The phone has a 3,000mAh battery that is removable, and it supports wireless charging. The G3 runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat and includes a new, redesigned user interface from LG that is flatter and more closely resembles that of native Android. Some of the software features include a kill switch that owners can use to disable the device; Knock Code for personalized device security; Content Lock to secure and protect individual files; as well as Smart Keyboard for adaptive learning of the owner's typing habits; and Smart Notice for a personal assistant (akin to Siri or Cortana). The LG G3 supports global LTE networks and will be sold by all four major U.S carriers later this summer. It will be offered in a handful of colors.
