The recently launched LG G3 smartphone will just make its way into the hands of eager buyers over the next few weeks but interesting news emerged again. Following press reports from Korea, an LG G3 Prime variant with even higher specs is in the pipeline.
The LG G3 is a highly anticipated flagship smartphone that has got many fans talking. Previously, there had been mixed rumours over whether it would appear with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 or 801processor, but now, the former was eventually confirmed. The Korean media are coming up with new information about an upcoming version of the LG G3 that would offer an improved download speeds and enhanced processor.
According to reports, the LG G3 Prime variant will sport the Snapdragon 805 SoC and a Qualcomm MDM9635 modem. If this will hold true, the LG G3 Prime variant will have download speeds of up to 225 Mbps depending on network. The same modem is also rumoured for the Samsung Galaxy S5 Prime also known as Galaxy F.
Recently, LG filed different names for trademarking and one of these is the "G Prime," so the LG G3 Prime could be a likely name for the upcoming premium LG smartphone. In terms of specs, the LG G3 Prime variant is said to feature the same as the standard LG G3 except for the improved chipset.
The LG G3 Prime variant is reported to launch in July, according to the same source. Although it is likely to have fresh news about the LG G3 Prime variant pretty soon, you might want to check the LG G3 to have an idea on what the standard version offers.
Thus far, it is worth pointing out that if the LG G3 Prime variant is indeed on its way, it might not be released in all regions, but then again, there is no sure way to tell at this point in time. So, if you are ready to buy the LG G3, it might be better to wait and see if the reported LG G3 Prime variant will be announced in the coming weeks.
