LG has published a teaser video of its upcoming G3 flagship Android smartphone, which will be launched in London on 27 May.
The 35-second video doesn’t give much away, but it at least gives a close-up look at the G3’s camera, which sits above a rear-mounted power button and volume rocker.
In line with leaked images of the LG G3, the promo video shows two items flanking the camera lens - one being the flash, while the other is now thought to be an infrared autofocus, a first for any smartphone.
The video also highlights the G3’s rear cover, which has a brushed metal finish similar to that of the HTC One (M8), and although the LG is expected to be made from plastic, we’d love the company to prove us wrong and launch a handset with a premium finish to match the M8.
A curved back can also be seen in the teaser, which comes with the tagline of “simple is the new smart”, echoing the simplification of both iOS and Samsung’s TouchWiz in the last year, where flat visuals have replaced complex design.
The final shot shows the phone displaying the time and date (of the London announcement, no less), on the front of the phone and surrounded by a raised circle. We imagine this forms part of a flip case similar to that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, where useful information can be seen through a window on the front panel.
All will be revealed on 27 May.
