It has hardly been four months since the South Korean consumer electronics giant launched its flagship LG G2 to global market. Now a new report has surfaced online according to which the company has already begun working on its successor.
Media house, The Korea Herald citing company insider, claims that LG has begun testing a prototype of the company's 2013 marquee smartphone G2 successor and is expected to launch it as early as February 2014.
The new LG smartphone touted as G3 will boast of QHD (aka 2K) 2560x1440p resolution screen, a 16.0-megapixel main camera and run on Android KitKat OS powered by an 2.2 GHz Octa-core processor. It wil also boast of finger-print based biometric technology for secured screen unlocking, which was first introduced in the Apple iPhone 5S in September this year.
Other key specifications such as RAM and battery capacity is still under wraps, but the revealed features of LG G3 are clear indication that the company is trying to make up for the disappointing global sales of G2 this year and go head-on with its South Korean counterpart Samsung, which is also expected to launch Galaxy S5 with similar specs in early 2014, probably by March/April.[to know about the expected features of Galaxy S5,Click Here]
