LG G3 screen to feature 2560 x 1440p WQHD display?

Forget the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One 2, newly surfaced leaks have suggested the LG G3 will launch later this year with a stunning 2560 x 1440 WQHD display.

According to claimed source code from the as yet unconfirmed handset, the LG G3 will become the first flagship smartphone to move beyond a 1080p Full HD panel, jumping to a WQHD offering.

Based on the leaked code – which has surfaced thanks to the usually reliable tipster @evleaks – the LG G3 is currently in the works under the codename of the LG D850. Although the phone will benefit from a market-leading display, it will reportedly miss out on voice input capabilities.

Despite the LG G3 screen resolution being premature teased, the display’s overall size is still a mystery.

Last year’s flagship LG G2 wowed us with its 5.2-inch Full HD display which was further enhanced by a heavily reduced, almost bezel-free design. If the Korean manufacturer could manage a similar feat with a WQHD panel we think the company could finally break into the smartphone elite.

Far from the first time the phone has been teased, earlier this week reports emerged suggesting the LG G3 would land with a dust and water resistant coating similar to that found on the Sony Xperia Z2.

Further LG G3 rumours to have done the rounds recently include the introduction of a new 13-megapixel camera and the addition of an integrated fingerprint scanner – the latest smartphone trend following. It is believed the phone will be announced in July, months after its flagship rivals hit retailers.
