LG G3 confirmed to feature 2K display [exclusive]

Kris Carlon

LG has confirmed that the upcoming LG G3 will feature a 2K display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, as the image below confirms. We received the AnTuTu benchmark image claiming to be from the G3 and reached out to LG, who have officially confirmed that the G3 will have QHD resolution. This is great news for anyone feeling a little let down by other manufacturer flagship releases so far this year.

While there's no juicy information in the image leaked to us relating to the processor, it seems highly likely that the G3 will pack at least a Snapdragon 801 chipset, backed up by Adreno 330 GPU. This will put it ahead of the pack even further, even if it is released several months later than the Galaxy S5, Xperia Z2 and HTC One (M8). While 2K resolution on what we expect to be a 5.5-inch screen will be a power-sucker, if anyone can handle battery and display with finesse it's got to be LG.

If the G3 does indeed arrive with a 5.5-inch display, the resolution will come in at 534 ppi. While we can't confirm that the bezels you see in the image come from the actual G3 or not, they do look similar to the LG G2, and there are no visible hardware buttons on the side of the pictured device. We're still hoping that LG will manage to squeeze that display into a chassis not much larger than the G2, but with the same bezels that might be a tall order. At this point we can assume that the G3 will house a quad-core Snapdragon 801 or 805, depending on its actual launch date and the availability of the Qualcomm chips, along with 3 GB of RAM to match its next-gen specs. We're expecting to see the G3 sooner rather than later, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement before too long.

[Update: our friends at UberGizmo got their own benchmark shot from what looks to be the same source. Their AnTuTu screen comes an hour after ours and shows slightly different details. Their pic shows a pixel density of 640 ppi, which seems highly unlikely. The LG G3 would need to have a 4.6-inch screen for that number to be accurate.]

Are you happy to see LG is leading the pack on the display front? How do you think LG will manage the power requirements of 2K resolution?

    It's also interesting to note that there are no buttons visible on the side of the device in the benchmark shot, making the likelihood of it being a G3 with rear-key configuration like the G2 even more likely.

    Since I bought my first LG phone(4X HD), I'm a fan. I would still have that if didn't get all wet and I didn't know what to do. Anyway, I'm glad LG is "upping" their game with these big and beautiful displays. LG is using the latest specs on their phones too. I have a G2 now and it's fantastic! Good for you, LG!

      @Carmelo, for future reference (I hope you don't need it though!), just drop a wet phone in a bag of rice for a day or two and resist the urge to turn it on until it's fully dry. Generally speaking, attempting to turn it on while wet is the real problem, not the fact that it got wet in the first place.
