LG G3 set to bring quad-HD displays to market sooner than expected
LG could be set to win the battle to get the first quad-HD display smartphone into the market, after a leak suggested the company is bringing forward the release of its new LG G3 to make it more competitive.
Rumours have been rife in the last few weeks that Samsung is ready to launch a phone with this all new 2K resolution in 2014 with the release of what many believe will be the Samsung Galaxy F, but ZDNet Korea has claimed to have confirmation that LG may well beat Samsung to the punch.
It said that it has spoken to a senior company official at LG, who said that the firm is looking to bring forward the release of the G3 to July, after having initially planned to start shipping in August.
The official is alleged to have told ZDNet Korea that the handset will have its official unveiling this June, with the release being pencilled in for a month later in order that it can exploit a gap in the market and remain competitive for longer.
UberGizmo has also this week released pictures that it says it obtained via a leak from a source described as "proven reliable in the past".
The leaked images appear to show that the phone will be packing a GPU which is a Qualcomm Adreno 330, while it is rumoured to have a massive display with a 5.2-inch and 5.5-inch screen being the most likely realities at the current time.
One of the most important factors for those who may consider trading in their phones to get their hands on this device, however, will be the resolution of the screen, and this appears to confirm that LG is on course for a quad-HD display as early as the July release.
The 1440 x 2560 resolution, which UberGizmo has said it has had confirmation of from LG itself, would put it at the very front of the race for quad-HD release.
