LG spoils its own surprise by listing metal-clad G3
With only a few hours to go until the LG G3 is officially unveiled, it would appear that LG Netherlands have gotten themselves a little over excited. They made the independent decision to jump the proverbial gun, releasing the full product page, complete with images, on its website.
Unfortunately they very quickly removed the page, but this is the internet so it wasn’t before the mistake was noticed and the information revealed to the world. The detail that’s caused the most excitement and is being talked about from this is that the G3 will apparently have a ‘lightweight metal housing’. In a previous leak we saw the metallic looking design of the G3 but it was largely assumed that the device was plastic with a metallic look.
We can also now confirm that the G3 will include 13MP camera which, unsurprisingly, will have optical image stabilisation and that the handset has a ‘Smart Notice’ feature, which gives you context sensitive information and reminders. One example given on the product page is that when you arrive at your office it might ask you whether you want to switch Wi-Fi on. How the battery holds up with this kind of processing will be interesting to see.
The 5.5-inch handset looks to have dimensions of 146.3 x 74.6 x 9.1mm, up from the 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm LG G2, this isn’t a huge jump especially considering the jump in screen size. On the inside there’s apparently a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM, bit meagre on the RAM as previously it looked like ti would have 3GB.

The product page also listed the G3 as having a removable 3000 mAh battery, a microSD card slot and a 2.1MP front facing camera, as well as re-confirming that it will have a QHD display. With such a big leak from such an official source its likely there won’t be any surprises tomorrow.
