LG G3 rumoured to be launching on 17 May

It doesn't take long for a phone to get 'old' these days. It was only back in September that we reviewed the LG G2 and found it to be a pretty strong contender. Now we're already hearing about the potential launch of its successor.

Reports out of Korea claim that the LG G3 will be unveiled to the world on 17 May. Yes, you don't even get a year out of a smartphone these days before it is sent out to pasture. The reason? LG is worried about the impact of the Samsung Galaxy S5, likely to be on the shelves a month or so before this launch. It hopes the G3 might hit Samsung where it hurts. On the balance sheet.

If the initial specification is true, it will pack a larger 5.5-inch QHD display with 1440 x 2560 resolution, a 16-megapixel rear camera with OIS technology built-in and LG's own Odin mobile chipset powering things. So still a little vague, but you et the overall picture of bigger and better.

Before that happens, LG is also reported to be launching its LG G Pro 2 phablet, which also packs a QHD display at around 5.9 inches. That should be launching at the MWC event in February. We will obviously be onto that as soon as it breaks.
