LG G3 will pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip, 13-megapixel snapper and 3,200mAh battery

LG’s G3 should be unveiled towards the end of this month and that means one thing – the smartphone rumour mill is already hitting fever pitch.

The latest rumour surrounds the inner workings of the next flagship smartphone with an insider telling Phone Arena that the processor will be a Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chip and not the Snapdragon 801 that had originally been spoken about.

In addition to this it will also come with 3GB of RAM as well as 32GB of onboard memory and a 3,200mAh battery with superior power management – all this coming from a copy of the phone’s repository that was pilfered by the anonymous source.

When it comes to the camera, the device will feature a 13-megapixel Sony IMX124 Exmor RS sensor complete with an f/2.0 aperture for improved low lighting shooting and the same OIS+ technology that is found in the G Pro 2.

The G3, which is expected to be unveiled at launch events taking place across the globe at the end of May, is widely expected to be packing a 5.5in Quad HD 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution display with a shell that is made from polycarbonate materials.

Other leaked photographs have shown that the rear mounted volume and power buttons of its predecessor have been retained, and there will be a sensor of some description next to the camera lens that could be used to measure heart rate or scan fingerprints.

Reports last week stated that mass production of the new smartphone is already underway over in Korea with various sources stating that the aim is to sell some 10 million handsets.

All eyes will now be on the six launch events that take in San Francisco, London and New York on 27 May and Seoul, Singapore and Istanbul on 28 May.
