Gold LG G3 teased by leaked retail packaging

Mimicking the rival Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, latest reports have suggested that the upcoming LG G3 will be made available in a jazzy gold hue.

Expected to line up alongside the standard black and white coloured offerings, the gold LG G3 has been teased by claimed images of the phone’s retail packaging. Sight of a gold box – along with word from unnamed Korean sources – has pointed to a lustrous handset within.

With a gold LG G2 having been added to the standard monochrome offerings post launch, it is unsurprising that a gold LG G3 is reportedly in the works.

A trend of the current smartphone movement, further phones to have adopted a gold sheen include the iPhone 5S, LG’s own LG G2 Mini and the super slim Huawei Ascend P6.

Far from the first word we have received on the LG G3, recent rumours have claimed the future flagship phone will adopt a new 5.5-inch display, with the oversized screen packing a special visual punch.

According to recent LG G3 rumours, the phone will become the first from a leading manufacturer to move beyond a Full HD panel, adding a stunning 2560 x 1440 resolution.

Although LG has remained tight lipped on all of the LG G3 claims, it is believed that the Android-powered handset will be formally unveiled early this summer ahead of a potential July release.
