LG’s next flagship smartphone will be called the G3 and will go on sale before the end of June, the company has confirmed.
Mentioned in its first-quarter financial results, LG said it expects the phone to contribute to improved revenues in the second quarter, which spans from April to the end of June.
LG said: “Higher revenues are expected in the second quarter with the release of the flagship LG G3 smartphone and wider roll-out of the mass-tier L Series III.”

While the name is hardly a surprise, given a wide range of rumours suggesting the same in recent weeks, the revelation does at least mean the phone is on track to arrive in the next couple of months.
According to a leaked image published this week, the LG G3 will have rear-mounted buttons like the G2, but these will be larger, flatter and joined on the back by a mystery sensor next to the camera - this is thought to be a fingerprint scanner for biometric security, or a heart rate monitor, as found on the Samsung Galaxy S5.

A ‘Quad HD’ display is also expected, with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution producing a massive 530 pixels per inch and making it the sharpest display ever seen on a smartphone.
