LG G3 specs leak suggest two model variants

LG G3 specs leaked in new AnTuTu benchmark listings suggest LG has plans to launch two variants of its 2014 flagship.

According to a pair of AnTuTu benchmark listings, there are two LG G3 models currently being tested by LG for launch later this year.

Recent rumours point to the LG G3 featuring a QHD 2560 x 1400p resolution display, but it seems that might be the higher end model available.

The AnTuTu leak shows that there is also a 1920 x 1080p full HD version of the device floating about.

Aside from the screen resolution the two LG G3 variants have extremely similar specs. However, the full 1080p HD version has 3GB of RAM in comparison to the 2GB of RAM offered by the 2K edition.

It seems a little bizarre that the higher resolution smartphone display would have 1GB of RAM less than the full 1080p HD version. Could that mean a difference in display size? Or even that the full HD model is a different handset entirely?

A launch has been tipped for June with an early July release date, so we won’t have long to wait to hear some official details on the LG G2 follow-up.

If these benchmarks are correct, both versions will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and feature a 13-megapixel rear camera and a secondary 2-megapixel video-calling snapper.

Both run the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box too, which is reassuring.

Previous rumours suggest that the LG G3 will come with a 5.5-inch display with 32GB of internal storage as standard. If the G3 does pack a QHD display, this would mean a stunning pixel density of 530ppi.

We haven’t seen such a high resolution display on many smartphones so far, except the Oppo Find 7 or other more niche handsets.

There are a few tablets on the market with screen resolutions to match though, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2, Google Nexus 10 and the Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 8.9.

If its going to be July then its a real shame LG doesn't use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor and really set this phone apart.

I think it will be an 805. LG has been known to partner with Qualcomm to be the first to release a new product with their latest chip in it. I wouldn't be surprised if we start seeing leaks of the 805 in the G3 in the upcoming weeks, as the release approaches. Seems they're using the 800/801 to test. It would be cool if there were 2 variants, I'm not convinced better than 1080p is beneficial, and I'd prefer 1080p for sure.

i believe as you do that it will be the 805 chipset, particularly if it is being released mid year.
There has been talk of an in-house octacore processor but I think we will see this in early in 2015 configured to handle 64 bit processing.
I am a big supporter of LG, but right now Oppo's flagship is what is really impressing me with its ultra fast charging, the same (literally) 1440p 5.5" screen and a 50mp camera (industry's best......see Youtube) all for a reported $599.
Question is will you buy a major brand high end smartphone on contract from your local telco or take a leap and buy a less known device on-line sim free and pre-pay month to month.

It actually has a 13mp camera but it is claimed to be as good as a 50mp camera when using the super zoom feature.
