LG G2 display set to be trumped

LG appears to have confirmed that its next flagship smartphone, the LG G3, will feature a Quad HD or 2K display.

Rumours that the Korean manufacturer would be the first major smartphone manufacturer to put a WQHD display into one of its products emerged last month. Now, fresh spec leaks appear to have confirmed that tip.

Over the weekend, specifications for the LG G3 appeared to turn up on the website of US mobile network Sprint.

According to that leak, the new phone would feature a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, Android 4.4.2 and a 5.5-inch display.

Most interesting of all, however, was the reported resolution of that large screen - 2560 x 1440, or QHD. This would lead to a class-leading pixel density of more than 530ppi.

This has since been backed up by Engadget, which claims to have received confirmation of this Full HD-busting resolution from LG itself.

Quad HD displays (also referred to as 2K) are labelled as such because they feature four times the number of pixels of regular 720p displays, such as those found on the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the HTC One X.

So far, we’ve only seen such technology employed on a couple of Chinese smartphones such as the Oppo Find 7, where the technology comes in useful for rendering the country’s finely detailed script.

We’re expecting to see the LG G3 bring this super-sharp display technology to the wider world some time in July.

Why would LG release their G3 so late compared to Sony, HTC and Samsung yet give it an old Snapdragon 800 chip?

I would think at the very least we should be seeing 801 but maybe they will really pull a rabbit out of the hat and give us 805?!

I just hope it comes with a MicroSD slot and a really decent camera with OIS otherwise its the Z2 for me.
