LG G3 specs leak points to integrated fingerprint scanner

LG G3 leaks again with biometric sensor tipped

The upcoming LG G3 specs sheet has leaked again, with latest reports suggesting the future flagship phone will feature its own integrated fingerprint scanner.

Seemingly set to follow in the footsteps of the rival iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5, the latest LG G3 leaks have seen the phone’s inbuilt biometric sensor tipped for inclusion alongside an improved camera and Full HD display.

Surfacing courtesy of a claimed user agent profile from the currently unconfirmed phone, the LG G3 leaks have offered an insight into both the phone’s hardware and software packages.

With the phone shown to pack pre-installed PayPal, McAfee Mobile Security and LG Account software, it has been claimed that an integrated fingerprint scanner could be on the cards. However, LG has yet to shed any official light on the claims and as such we must stress these reports be taken with a pinch of salt.

On a hardware front, the LG G3 will reportedly play host to a new 16-megapixel rear-mounted camera, with a secondary 2.4-megapixel snapper to be located on the phone’s fore.

Tipped to run 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, contrary to previous reports the LG G3 is said to be heading to launch with a 1080p Full HD display in tow.

Recent LG G3 leaks had claimed that the phone would be the first from a leading manufacturer to step beyond a Full HD panel, moving instead to a 1440p resolution display.

As with the LG G2 before it, it is believed that the LG G3 will play host to rear-mounted power and volume controls. It is expected that any fingerprint scanner would be integrated within this button housing.

I believe the author may be getting his leaks and specs mixed up. The Sprint user agent profile leak was confirmed to be the LG G3 and it had a Quad-HD display. There was another leak of what is likely the LG G3 Mini that will only have a 1080p display. I also think the author gets the RAM wrong also. The mini leak showed 2GB of RAM all other leaks including the Sprint UAP says the G3 will have 3 GB of RAM. Consdiering he lists no sources on his supposed "leaks" I would assume the author didn't do his homework and got confused.

I'd go the HTC for many other reasons too. My old Desire is still going strong, despite an unplanned toilet expedition. I have no Lucky Goldstar because it has all shat itself.
